Página 76 - CLXXVII •Oh, that the Desert were my dwelling-place, With one fair Spirit for my minister, That I might all forget the human race, And, hating no one, love but only her !

Página 45 - It is the hour when lovers' vows Seem sweet in every whisper'd word ; And gentle winds, and waters near, Make music to the lonely ear. Each flower the dews have lightly wet, And in the sky the stars are met, And on the wave is deeper blue, And on the leaf a browner hue, And in the heaven that clear obscure, So softly dark, and darkly pure, Which follows the decline of day, As twilight melts beneath the moon away.

Even thus last night, and two nights more, I lay, And could not win thee, Sleep! by any stealth: So do not let me wear tonight away: Without Thee what is all the morning's wealth? Come, blessed barrier between day and day, Dear mother of fresh thoughts and joyous health!

Roused from his sleep (for he was a good sleeper) with a despatch from Lord Melville ; — then down to Windsor ; then, if he had half an hour to spare, trying to swallow something : — Mr. Adams with a paper, Mr. Long with another ; then Mr. Rose ; then, with a little bottle of cordial confection in his pocket, off to the House until three or four in the morning; then home to a hot supper for two or three hours more, to...
Página 85 - I need not explain to you," he replied, with the air of a man who is not ignorant of his own merits, " by what process I have become a captain of dragoons. When the great drama of European politics grows serious, and the thrones of princes totter beneath them, the sons of nobles, and the minions of kings and ministers, yield to the force of events, and give place to men of talent and energy. At the present time there are few fieldofficers in active service throughout Germany who have not carried...
Página 19 - And therefore was it she was sent Abroad to beg for bread. We saw a woman sitting down Upon a stone to rest ; She had a baby at her back, And another at her breast. I...
Página 76 - I faithfully have kept my vow, And feel not an accusing sting : I never yet have laid it by A moment since my bridal day : Where he first placed it let it lie : Oh ! take it not away ! ' " Now wrap me in my wedding gown, You scarce can think how cold I feel ; And smooth my ruffled pillow down : Oh ! how my clouded senses reel ! Great God ! support me to the last ! Oh, let more air into the room : The struggle now is nearly past...
Página 88 - Ah, my good and reverend sir!" exclaimed the old man, " you see there a striking proof of the great advantages of war over peace, and especially in the Swedish service. In peaceable times, the signal merits of that man would not have raised him from obscurity. He is Colonel Stahlhantsch, a Finlander. In his youth he was a footman, and now he is the equal in military rank and the personal friend of Duke Bernard. But he is a highly-gifted man, and, amongst other accomplishments, is well acquainted...
