Pàgina 27 - The barge she sat in, like a burnish'd throne, Burn'd on the water ; the poop was beaten gold, Purple the sails, and so perfumed that The winds were love-sick with them, the oars were silver, Which to the tune of flutes kept stroke, and made The water which they beat to follow faster, As amorous of their strokes.
Pàgina 525 - GO from me. Yet I feel that I shall stand Henceforward in thy shadow. Nevermore Alone upon the threshold of my door Of individual life, I shall command The uses of my soul, nor lift my hand Serenely in the sunshine as before, Without the sense of that which I forbore — Thy touch upon the palm.

He must also be specially careful of the bogs, ' the stables of Dartmoor,' as they are locally called....
Pàgina 27 - Her gentlewomen, like the Nereides, So many mermaids, tended her i' the eyes, And made their bends adornings ; at the helm A seeming mermaid steers ; the silken tackle Swell with the touches of those flower-soft hands, That yarely frame the office. From the barge A strange invisible perfume hits the sense Of the adjacent wharfs. The city cast Her people out upon her, and Antony, Enthron'd i...
Pàgina 498 - I cannot blame him : at my nativity The front of heaven was full of fiery shapes, Of burning cressets ; and at my birth The frame and huge foundation of the earth Shaked like a coward.
Pàgina 46 - ... could endure for a single year. During this brief period it is better to bear the ills they have than fly to others they know not of.
Pàgina 499 - I earnestly entreat you, for God Almighty's sake, that you will put up your petitions to the Throne of Grace on our behalf, that the deceased may be restored to us, and the late dame Eleanor Pryse be raised from the dead.
Pàgina 226 - His lordship immediately stated that he had inquired into the matter, and found the charge to be utterly unfounded ; that he had spoken on the subject to Mr. Baron Parke — who sat on the bench beside Chief-justice Tyndal, who tried the case — and that Baron Parke told him he had, for reasons of his own, carefully watched every word you uttered ; and assured Lord Denman that your address was perfectly unexceptionable, and that you made no such statement as that which was subsequently attributed...
