No roebuck more swift could fly over the mountain, No veteran bolder meet...

Smiling, beguiling, &c.
197 ページ - You gave it to me as a true lover's token, No longer with me, love, it shall remain." The bride she sat at the head of the table, The words he said she marked them right well ; To sit any longer she was not able, And down at the bridegroom's feet she fell. " One request I do make of you And I hope you will grant it to me, To lie this night in the arms of my mother, And ever, ever after to lie with thee.
117 ページ - Spain. The boys will sorely miss him, when Moneyhore comes round, And grieve that their bould captain is nowhere to be found; The peelers must stand idle, against their will and grain, For the valiant boy who gave them work now peels the King o
229 ページ - Room, room, brave gallants, Come give us room to rhyme, For I'm come to show my mirth And activity in Christmas time. " Active young and active age — The like was never acted on a stage. And if you believe not what I say, Enter in, St. George, and boldly clear the way.
