54 ページ - O eloquent, just, and mighty Death! whom none could advise, thou hast persuaded; what none hath dared, thou hast done; and whom all the world hath flattered, thou only hast cast out of the world and despised: thou hast drawn together all the far-stretched greatness, all the pride, cruelty, and ambition of man, and covered it all over with these two narrow words, Hie jacet.
101 ページ - And thinking of the days that are no more. Fresh as the first beam glittering on a sail, That brings our friends up from the underworld, Sad as the last which reddens over one That sinks with all we love below the verge; So sad, so fresh, the days that are no more.
375 ページ - Whose waves of torrent fire inflame with rage. Far off from these a slow and silent stream, Lethe, the river of oblivion, rolls Her watery labyrinth, whereof who drinks, Forthwith his former state and being forgets, Forgets both joy and grief, pleasure and pain.

341 ページ - Here she was wont to go! and here! and here! Just where those daisies, pinks, and violets grow, The world may find the spring by following her, Swinburne.
348 ページ - Nature's second sun Causing a spring of virtues where he shines; And as without the sun, the world's great eye, All colours, beauties, both of art and Nature, Are given in vain to men, so without love All beauties bred in women are in vain, All virtues born in men lie buried; For love informs them as the sun doth colours...
