The lark, his lay who thrill'd all day, Sits hush'd his partner nigh ; Breeze, bird, and flower confess the hour, But where is County Guy? The village maid steals through the shade Her shepherd's suit to hear ; To Beauty shy, by lattice high...
Pagina 379 - Weep ye not for the dead, neither bemoan him : but weep sore for him that goeth away : for he shall return no more, nor see his native country.
Pagina 250 - Upon its midnight battle-ground The spectral camp is seen, And, with a sorrowful, deep sound, Flows the River of Life between.

Pagina 58 - Do not let us lie at all. Do not think of one falsity as harmless, and another as slight, and another as unintended. Cast them all aside : they may be light and accidental ; but they are an ugly soot from the smoke of the pit, for 11 that ; and it is better that our hearts should be swept clean of them, without over care as to which is largest or blackest.
Pagina 75 - Dark tree, still sad when others' grief is fled, The only constant mourner o'er the dead i The steed is vanish'd from the stall No serf is seen in Hassan's hall ; The lonely spider's thin grey pall Waves slowly widening o'er the wall ; The bat builds in his haram bower ; And in the fortress of his power The owl usurps the beacon-tower ; The...
