42 ページ - Though harsh the precept, yet the people charm'd. For, letting down the golden chain from high, He drew his audience upward to the sky ; And oft with holy hymns he charm'd their ears, A music more melodious than the spheres ; For David left him, when he went to rest, His lyre ; and after him he sung the best.
101 ページ - Mouths without hands; maintained at vast expense, In peace a charge, in war a weak defence ; Stout once a month they march, a blustering band, And ever, but in times of need, at hand ; This was the morn when, issuing on the guard, Drawn up in rank and file they stood prepared Of seeming arms to make a short essay, Then hasten to be drunk, the business of the day.
101 ページ - The country rings around with loud alarms, And raw in fields the rude militia swarms ; Mouths without hands, maintained at vast expense, In peace a charge, in war a weak defence : Stout once a month they march, a blust'ring band ; And ever, but in times of need, at hand...
44 ページ - His preaching much, but more his practice wrought; (A living sermon of the truths he taught); For this by rules severe his life he squared, That all might see the doctrine which they heard.
75 ページ - More than a mile immersed within the wood, At once the wind was laid; the whispering sound Was dumb: a rising earthquake rock'd the ground! With deeper brown the grove was overspread: A sudden horror seized his giddy head, And his ears tinkled, and his colour fled. Nature was in alarm; some danger nigh Seem'd threaten'd, though unseen to mortal eye.
68 ページ - But this last act of love excels the rest ; For this so dear a present, bear him back The best return that I can live to make.
89 ページ - Nor can we write without it, nor would you A tale of only dry instruction view ; Nor love is always of a vicious kind, But oft to virtuous acts inflames the mind ; Awakes the sleepy vigour of the soul, And, brushing o'er, adds motion to the pool.
64 ページ - This law, though custom now diverts the course, As nature's institute, is yet in force; Uncancell'd, though disused ; and he, whose mind Is virtuous, is alone of noble kind ; Though poor in fortune, of celestial race; And he commits the crime who calls him base.
78 ページ - ... the war : — Cease, Theodore, to proffer vain relief, Nor stop the vengeance of so just a grief; But give me leave to seize my destined prey, And let eternal justice take the way : I but revenge my fate, disdain'd, betray'd, And suffering death for this ungrateful maid.
