Pagina 147 - I have seen A curious child, who dwelt upon a tract Of inland ground, applying to his ear The convolutions of a smooth-lipped shell ; To which, in silence hushed, his very soul Listened intensely ; and his countenance soon Brightened with joy ; for from within were heard Murmurings, whereby the monitor expressed Mysterious union with its native sea.
Pagina 147 - To which, in silence hushed, his very soul Listened intensely ; and his countenance soon Brightened with joy ; for murmurings from within Were heard, — sonorous cadences ! whereby, To his belief, the Monitor expressed Mysterious union with its native Sea. Even such a Shell the Universe itself Is to the ear of Faith...
Pagina 334 - Full long this lesson, Pupil fair ! All pupils else hath he forsook ; He draws still nearer to thy chair, And bends yet closer o'er the book. As time flies on, now fast, now fleeter, More slowly is the page turned o'er ; The lesson seems to both the sweeter, And more enchanting grows the lore. The book now yields a tenderer theme ; The Master loses all his art, The Pupil droops as in a dream, And both are reading with one heart.

As every page unfolds its meaning, As every rustling leaf turns o'er,...
Pagina 334 - ... record of heroic deed ; Yet deems he now his eyes were dim, And thine have taught them first to read. Now fades in him the scholar's glory ; For he would give the fame he sought, With thee to read the simplest story, And learn what sages never taught. The precious wealth of countless books, Lies stowed within his grasping mind ; Yet should he not peruse thy looks, He now were more than Ignorance blind. From many a language, old, enchanting, Rare truths to nations he unrolls ; But one old language...
Pagina 335 - ... His eyes upraised a moment glisten With hope, and joy, and fear profound ; While thine, oh, Maiden ! do they listen ? They seem to hear his sigh's faint sound ! But hark ! what sound indeed breaks through The silence of that life-long hour ! Melodious tinklings, such as sue For favour near a lady's bower. Ah ! Maid of Padua, music swelling In tribute to thy radiant charms, Now greets thee in thy father's dwelling, To woo thee from a father's arms. The suitor comes with song and lute, Youth, riches,...

Pagina 163 - Janeiro ; and, perhaps, there is not more splendid panoramic scenery in the whole world than is presented to the eye from the place of anchorage between the city of St. Sebastian on the south, and the pretty island of Braganza on the north. The entrance to this place is spacious, with almost perpendicular mountains on either hand, one of which, from its peculiar form, is called the Sugar Loaf. To the westward, in the distance, are innumerable small islands, just dotting the surface of the broad river,...
