311 ページ - God give thee of the dew of heaven, And of the fatness of the earth, And plenty of corn and wine...
238 ページ - The illustrations of this volume . . . . are of quite sterling and admirable art, of a class precisely parallel in elevation to the character of the tales which they illustrate; and the original etchings, as I have before said in the Appendix to my ' Elements of Drawing,' were unrivalled^ in masterfulness of touch since Rembrandt (in some qualities of delineation, unrivalled even by him).
xxvi ページ - Thine eyes shall see the king in his beauty: They shall behold the land that is very far off.
84 ページ - For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.
335 ページ - Dear mother Ida, harken ere I die. It was the deep midnoon : one silvery cloud Had lost his way between the piney sides Of this long glen. Then to the bower they came, Naked they came to that smooth-swarded bower, And at their feet the crocus brake like fire, Violet, amaracus, and asphodel, Lotos and lilies : and a wind arose, And overhead the wandering ivy and vine, This way and that, in many a wild festoon Ran riot, garlanding the gnarled boughs With bunch and berry and flower thro

310 ページ - Mincius, crowned with vocal reeds, That strain I heard was of a higher mood : But now my oat proceeds. And listens to the herald of the sea That came in Neptune's plea, He asked the waves, and asked the felon winds, What hard mishap hath doomed this gentle swain?
362 ページ - That rivulet of smooth silver — how does it flow, think you ? It literally rows on the earth with every scale for an oar ; it bites the dust with the ridges of its body. Watch it when it moves slowly — a wave, but without wind...
