Pagina 112 - Thou charm'st us with thy soft and solemn hymn From battlement, or barn, or haystack trim ; And now not seldom tunest, as if for hire. Thy thrilling pipe to me, waiting to catch The pittance due to thy well-warbled song ; Sweet bird ! sing on : for oft near lonely hatch. Like thee, myself have...

Pagina 46 - Go, rose, my Chloe's bosom grace ! How happy should I prove, Might I supply that envied place With never-fading love !
