328 ページ - Warblest at eve, when all the woods are still, Thou with fresh hope the lover's heart dost fill, While the jolly hours lead on propitious May. Thy liquid notes that close the eye of day, First heard before the shallow cuckoo's bill, Portend success in love. O, if Jove's will Have linked that amorous power to thy soft lay, Now timely sing, ere the rude bird of hate Foretell my hopeless doom, in some grove nigh; As thou from year to year hast sung too late For my relief, yet hadst no reason why.
93 ページ - A virgin scene! — A little while I stood, Breathing with such suppression of the heart As joy delights in; and with wise restraint Voluptuous, fearless of a rival, eyed The banquet; — or beneath the trees I sate Among the flowers, and with the flowers I played; A temper known to those who, after long And weary expectation, have been blest With sudden happiness beyond all hope.
244 ページ - Dear lovely bowers of innocence and ease, Seats of my youth, when every sport could please, How often have I loitered o'er thy green, Where humble happiness endeared each scene...
93 ページ - Tall and erect, with milk-white clusters hung, A virgin scene ! — A little while I stood, Breathing with such suppression of the heart As joy delights in ; and, with wise restraint Voluptuous, fearless of a rival, eyed The banquet ; — or beneath the trees I sate Among the flowers, and with the flowers I played ; A temper known to those, who, after long And weary expectation...

Thy liquid notes that close the eye of day, First heard before the shallow cuckoo's bill, Portend success in love. O, if Jove's will Have...
125 ページ - SWEET stream, that winds through yonder glade, Apt emblem of a virtuous maid — Silent and chaste she steals along, Far from the world's gay busy throng ; • With gentle yet prevailing force, Intent upon her destined course ; Graceful and useful all she does, Blessing and blest where'er she goes.
218 ページ - Yet the joy of grief it is mine to bear; I hear thy voice in the twilight air; Thy smile, of sweetness untold, I see When the visions of evening are borne to me ; Thy kiss on my dreaming lip...
40 ページ - The avenues to this house are along St. James's Park, through rows of goodly elms on one hand, and gay flourishing limes on the other ; that for coaches, this for walking; with the Mall lying between them. This reaches to my iron...
42 ページ - ... with rooms over them for servants: the upper sort of servants are lodged in the other wing, which has also two wardrobes and a store-room for fruit. On the top of all a leaden cistern holding fifty tons of water, driven up by an engine from the Thames, supplies all the water-works in the courts and gardens, which lie quite round the house; through one of which a grass walk conducts to the stables, built round a court, with six coach-houses and forty stalls.
257 ページ - That o'er this scene has come and gone — The shades of Rome would start and flee Unconsciously — I thought of thee. I thought of thee— I thought of thee, In Vallombrosa's holy shade, Where nobles born the friars be, By Life's rude changes humbler made.
