Pagina 173 - A thousand liveried angels lackey her, Driving far off each thing of sin and guilt, And in clear dream and solemn vision Tell her of things that no gross ear can hear ; Till oft converse with heavenly habitants Begin to cast a beam on the outward shape, The unpolluted temple of the mind, And turns it by degrees to the soul's essence, Till all be made immortal.
Pagina 201 - I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill ; but time and chance happeneth to them all.
Pagina 201 - But clear and artless, pouring through the plain Health to the sick, and solace to the swain. Whose causeway parts the vale with shady rows? Whose seats the weary traveller repose ? Who taught that Heav'n-directed spire to rise? " The Man of Ross," each lisping babe replies. Behold the market-place with poor o'erspread ! The Man of Ross...

Pagina 201 - Cast in his dart, which made three moidores light ; 'And, as he saw his darling money fail, Blew his last breath, to sink the lighter scale.
Pagina 206 - Where'er mankind and misery are found — O'er burning sands, deep waves, or wilds of snow, Thy HOWARD, journeying, seeks the house of woe.
Pagina 207 - Mercy through the gloom, And shows the prison, sister to the tomb ! — Gives to her babes the self-devoted wife, To her fond husband liberty and life ! — — The spirits of the good, who bend from high Wide o'er these earthly scenes their partial eye, When first, array 'd in Virtue's purest robe, They saw her Howard traversing the globe ; Saw round his brows her sun-like glory blaze In arrowy circles of unwearied rays ; Mistook a mortal for an angel-guest, And ask'd what seraph-foot the earth...
