Pagina 348 - For, lo, the winter is past, The rain is over and gone; The flowers appear on the earth; The time of the singing of birds is come, And the voice of the turtle is heard in our land; The fig tree putteth forth her green figs, And the vines with the tender grape give a good smell, Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away.

Pagina 197 - Soon in smart pain he feels the dire mistake, lashes the wave, and beats the foamy lake ; With sudden rage he now aloft appears, And in his eye convulsive anguish bears ; And now again, impatient of the wound, He rolls and wreathes his shining body round ; Then headlong shoots beneath the dashing tide, The trembling fins the boiling wave divide.
Pagina 98 - I feel confident," continued the Professor with a serious expression, " that there is often a special Providence which draws up the veil of hidden crime. The scene again changes. About a month after the finding of the bodies the landlord of the Castle and Falcon, accompanied by Truthful, started on a walk towards the London Docks, where having business to transact, he entered an office of a wine and spirit merchant. He had not been long engaged on his affairs, when a loud shouting and swearing proclaimed...
Pagina 114 - In autumn, at the partridge makes a flight, And giv'st thy gladder guests the sight; And, in the winter, hunt'st the flying hare, More for thy exercise, than fare; While all, that follow, their glad ears apply To the full greatness of the cry...
