85 ページ - My thoughtless youth was wing'd with vain desires, My manhood, long misled by wandering fires, Follow'd false lights, and, when their glimpse was gone, My pride struck out new sparkles of her own.

37 ページ - tis to rule, for that's a monarch's end. They call my tenderness of blood my fear ; Though manly tempers can the longest bear. Yet, since they will divert my native course, 'Tis time to show I am not good by force.
199 ページ - Flush'd with a purple grace He shows his honest face: Now give the hautboys breath; he comes, he comes! Bacchus, ever fair and young, Drinking joys did first ordain; Bacchus...
32 ページ - Behold th' approaching cliffs of Albion : It is no longer motion cheats your view, As you meet it, the land approacheth you. The land returns, and, in the white it wears, The marks of penitence and sorrow bears.
