42 ページ - OH Love ! sweet Love ! in May's first fragrant hour, Did I not rear this shrine with studious care ; And kneeling, weeping, own thy sov'reign power, And breathe to thee my warmest, fondest prayer ? Did not each rosy dawn's first beams behold me With new-culled fragrant garlands deck thy shrine, With musky pinks, sweet thyme, and glowing roses, Bathed in the morning's dewy tears, and mine ? Did I not teach the myrtle's glossy foliage Gently to bend, and arch into a bower ? Bade here the rose diffuse...
185 ページ - As once a young shepherd sat upon the mountain's brow, he perceived an old man slowly ascending its side. His tresses were silver-white; he walked feebly, and bent over his staff, for one of his legs were of wood. At length he reached the young shepherd and seated himself on the cliff beside him. The youth looked at him with astonishment, and gazed on his wooden leg as it lay stretched before him on the grass. "Child...
191 ページ - O angels of heaven! Was that generous man thy father ? YOUNG SHEPHERD. He had a scar here — pointing to his left cheek — he had been wounded with a lance ; perhaps it was before he carried you from the field. OLD MAN. His cheek was covered with blood when he bore me off. O my child ! My son ! YOUNG SHEPHERD. He died two years ago, and as he was poor, I am forced, for subsistence, to keep these goats.
23 ページ - O'er thy fair nymphs in noon-tide hour, Thy fanning pinions light display, Steal fragrance from each opening flower, And to their breasts the sweets convey : But know, amid thy frolic raptures, 'Mid transports to thy thought so dear, A purer joy, a softer pleasure, A sweeter office waits me here. Here, past this thick o'er arching foliage, Soon shall a maiden bend her way, Fair as the morn's first dawning radiance, And mild as eve's last lingering ray. See'st thou yon lowly moss-roofed cottage, On...
41 ページ - To those who do good in the morning every hour of the day brings pleasure, and for them peace and joy spring from every object around.
25 ページ - O'er her my dewy wings display, Cool her soft cheek, and fan her bosom, And with her amber tresses play. FIRST ZEPHYR. Oh happy Zephyr ! with such pleasures My truant sports can ill compare ; I'll wait with thee the nymph's returning, And sweets for her with thee prepare. But see ! through yonder willowy bower She comes, and by the winding stream, While glittering through their pearly shower, Her eyes with mildest radiance beam. Oh beauteous nymph ! I fly to meet thee, O'er thee these balmy dews...
212 ページ - Tipt with soft light the white waves' feathery foam, And glanced on downy moss and starry flowers. Alas ! how changed : — yet soon shall youthful Spring Breathe on thy buds, dissolve thy icy chains ; Again thy stream shall health and freshness pour, Again shall flowers and verdure deck thy plains. Receive me then beneath thy peaceful shade, Hide me where care shall never find me more, Ye waters ! lull me with your soothing fall, Thou downy moss ! my lost repose restore. From the cool stream and...
18 ページ - Oh ! fairer is the artless shadowy del], with its winding paths ; fairer the meadow, bright with a thousand blossoms. I have planted flowers too, round my hut, marjoram, and lilies, and roses. Oh ! how much fairer are our fountains, when they sparkle over the cliffs, or bursting from the thick wood, rush, down the hills, and wind their mazy way through flowery meadows.
23 ページ - FIRST ZEPHYR. AH ! cease, amid that rosy bower To bathe thy shadowy wings in dew, But bend with me thy airy flight, And pleasures sweet as mine, pursue. In yonder cool sequestered valley The nymphs now bathe in crystal streams, While fairer through the sparkling waters Each sweet, each softened beauty gleams. SECOND ZEPHYR. Swift spread thy light, thy shadowy pinions, And swift thy wanton sports pursue, While here amid these rosy shades I cool my wings in perfumed dew. O'er thy fair nymphs in noon-tide...
55 ページ - How beautiful ! how beautiful is the landscape ! How bright, how clear appears the deep blue of heaven through the broken clouds ! They fly, they pass away, these towering clouds ; but strew a shadow as they pass over the sunny landscape. . . . Oh, what joy overwhelms my soul ! how beautiful, how excellent is all around, what an inexhaustible source of rapture ! From the enlivening sun down to the little plant that his mild...
