Pagina 329 - Hath borne his faculties so meek, hath been So clear in his great office, that his virtues Will plead like angels, trumpet-tongued, against The deep damnation of his taking-off ; And pity, like a naked new-born babe, Striding the blast, or heaven's cherubin, hors'd Upon the sightless couriers of the air, Shall blow the horrid deed in every eye, That tears shall drown the wind.
Pagina 331 - Tis an allusion to love. So Boar and Sow, when any storm is nigh, Snuff up, and smell it gath'ring in the Sky; Boar beckons Sow to trot in Chestnut Groves, 170 And there consummate their unfinished Loves: Pensive in mud they wallow all alone, And snore and gruntle to each others moan.
Pagina 602 - Testator as and for his last Will and Testament in the Presence of us who in his presence and at his request and in the presence of each other have subscribed our names as Witnesses thereto.
Pagina 307 - And when blind man pronounc'd thy bliss complete ! And on a foreign shore ; where strangers wept ! Strangers to thee ; and, more surprising still, Strangers to kindness, wept : their eyes let fall Inhuman tears : strange tears ! that trickled down From marble hearts ! obdurate tenderness ! A tenderness that call'd them more severe ; In spite of nature's soft persuasion, steel'd ; While nature melted, superstition rav'd ; That mourn'd the dead ; and this denied a grave.

Pagina 356 - Whoe'er has travelled life's dull round, Where'er his stages may have been. May sigh to think he still has found His warmest welcome at an inn.
Pagina 370 - I am, with great truth and regard, Sir, Your most obedient Humble servant, (Signed) Hillsborough.
Pagina 457 - ... which oppose that opinion : I do humbly apprehend that an overbearing voice, and noisy volubility of tongue, are proofs of a very underbred fellow, and it is with regret I see society too frequently disturbed in its most delectable enjoyments, by this odious character : I do not see that any man hath a right, by obligation or otherwise, to lay me under a necessity of thinking exactly as he thinks : Though I amit, that ' from the fulness of the heart the tongue speaketh,' I do not admit any superior...
Pagina 467 - midst fruit and flowery wreaths for fame, And Elmer springs it in the feather'd game. Apart, and bending o'er the the azure tide, With heavenly Contemplation by his side, A pensive artist stands— in thoughtful mood, With downcast looks he eyes the ebbing flood : No wild ambition swells his temperate heart, Himself as pure, as patient as his art, Nor sullen sorrow, nor intemperate joy, The even...
