Pagina 34 - Awe bleteth after lomb, Lhouth after calve cu ; Bulluc sterteth, bucke verteth, Murie sing cuccu ! "Cuccu, cuccu, well singes thu, cuccu, Ne swik thu naver nu ; Sing, cuccu, nu, sing, cuccu, Sing, cuccu, sing, cuccu, nu !
Pagina 22 - In Sutherland and elsewhere, many believe that they have seen these fancied animals. I have been told of English sportsmen who went in pursuit of them, so circumstantial were the accounts of those who believed that they had seen them. The witnesses are so numerous, and their testimony agrees so well, that there must be some old deeply-rooted Celtic belief which clothes every dark object with the dreaded form of the EACH UISGE.
Pagina 172 - O what are these ? Death's ministers, not men ! who thus deal death Inhumanly to men, and multiply Ten thousand fold the sin of him who slew His brother...
Pagina 92 - Neo-Celtie by Sir A. Wollaston Franks, who has done so much to illustrate it, was imported by a new wave of population, to which the name Belgic has been given, and whose original home was apparently in Switzerland and South Germany. This race is now best represented by the Welsh, but we must not forget that it also had large colonies in Ireland, where Neo-Celtic art became predominant and where it outlived the Roman domination elsewhere. In Great Britain, as on the Continent, this art was displaced,...
Pagina 91 - Egyptians are now recognized to have had close relations of blood, etc., with them, and who were, as you know, almost fanatically devoted to the practice of burial, as contrasted with burning in disposing of their dead. In this behalf it is curious to remember the distribution of the so-called cromlechs, which are merely chambered tombs of another form. They are found all round the northern part of Africa, in Spain in the maritime parts of Gaul, and all over Britain, where they have not been displaced...
Pagina 89 - A corrective to this is very speedily and interestingly reached when we turn to other fields of research, such as language and mythology, and physical constitution. We can trace back the languages of Egypt, of Babylonia, of India, and China ,for a long distance beyond the occurrence of regular annals in those countries — back, in fact, to the Stone Age in each, and similarly with the mythology, and the result is that, instead of apparently reaching a common origin and common elements in them, the...
Pagina 32 - In tract of time doth fall; The hardest heart in time doth yield To Venus' luring call. Where chilling frost alate did nip, There flasheth now a fire ; 'c Where deep disdain bred noisome hate, There kindleth now desire.
Pagina 85 - Institute has always been a most catholic mother. In her ample lap she has welcomed every kind of fruit which the cornucopia of research has poured out to illustrate the drama of human life. Her aim and object have been, as far as possible, to give a picture of the sometimes gay and sometimes gloomy procession which our race has formed as it has tramped along the avenues of time from the land of mist and cloud to the land of darkness. Every fact, however recorded, whether preserved in words or graven...
Pagina 93 - ... enterprise who have not only been rich enough to patronize but who have also been in contact with fresh ideas which have given art its new departure. The Flemings at Bruges and the Hanse traders all over the Baltic accumulated and developed ideas which they picked up at Novgorod and in the far-off districts of Perm, etc. On the other hand, the Venetians and the Genoese had their factories all over the Black Sea and among the isles of Greece. They shook hands there with the caravan traders from...
Pagina 22 - The bay or grey horse grazes at the lake-side, and when he is mounted rushes into the loch and devours his rider. His back lengthens to suit any number ; men's hands stick to his skin ; he is harnessed to a plough, and drags the team and the plough into the loch, and tears the horses to bits...
