319 ページ - And at the door imprisoning board is seen, Lest weakly wights of smaller size should stray; Eager, perdie, to bask in sunny day! The noises intermix'd, which thence resound, Do learning's little tenement betray; Where sits the dame, disguised in look profound And eyes her fairy throng, and turns her wheel around.

144 ページ - She faw him wheel, and frifk, and bound ; From rock to rock purfue his way, And, on the fearful margin, play. / Pleas'd on his various freaks to dwell, She faw him climb my ruftic cell ; Thence eye my lawns with verdure bright, And feem all ravifh'd at the fight.
185 ページ - She is every way pleasing to me. 0 you that have been of her train, Come and join in my amorous lays! 1 could lay down my life for the swain That will sing but a song in her praise.
115 ページ - Had giv'n the robe with grace to flow, Had taught exotic gems to glow ; And emulous of nature's pow'r, Mimick'd the plume, the leaf, the flow'r...
181 ページ - To visit some far distant shrine, If he bear but a relique away, Is happy, nor heard to repine. Thus, widely remov'd from the fair, Where my vows, my devotion I owe ; Soft hope is the relique I bear, And my solace wherever I go.
187 ページ - I have nothing to do but to weep. Yet do not my folly reprove ; She was fair — and my passion begun ; She smil'd — and I could not but love ; She is faithless — and I am undone.
