Pagina 122 - Ah, miserable and unkind, untrue, Unknightly, traitor-hearted! Woe is me! Authority forgets a dying king, Laid widow'd of the power in his eye That bow'd the will. I see thee what thou art, For thou, the latest-left of all my knights, In whom should meet the offices of all, Thou wouldst betray me for the precious hilt ; Either from lust of gold, or like a girl Valuing the giddy pleasure of the eyes.

Pagina 162 - Britain's isle resounds, To him whose goodness to the poor abounds. Long shall his name in British annals shine, And grateful ages offer at his shrine : By this our trade are thousands daily fed, By it supplied with means to earn their bread, In various forms our trade its work imparts, In different methods, and by different arts ; Preserves from starving indigents distress'd, As combers, spinners, weavers, and the rest.
Pagina 571 - I praise Thee while my days go on ; I love Thee while my days go on : Through dark and dearth, through fire and frost, With emptied arms and treasure lost, I thank Thee while my days go on.
