Pagina 294 - Barbara; She was in love, and he she loved proved mad And did forsake her. She had a song of "Willow"; An old thing 'twas, but it express'd her fortune, And she died singing it.
Pagina 295 - Her voice was good, and the ditty fitted for it ; it was that smooth song which was made by Kit Marlow, now at least fifty years ago ; and the milk-maid's mother sung an answer to it, which was made by Sir Walter Raleigh, in his younger days.

Pagina 205 - Nae langer she wept^— her tears were a' spent,— Despair it was come, and she thought it content; She thought it content, but her cheek it grew pale, And she droop'd, like a lily broke down by the hail.
Pagina 90 - Here, in cool grot and mossy cell, We rural Fays and Fairies dwell ; Though rarely seen by mortal eye, When the pale moon, ascending high, Darts through yon lines her quivering beams, We frisk it near these crystal streams.
Pagina 131 - em is lost. With humble vows they first begin, Stealing unseen into the heart; But, by possession settled in, They quickly act another part. For beads and baubles we resign In ignorance our shining store; Discover nature's richest mine, And yet the tyrants will have more.
