Drake comes ! CHORUS.
Página 261 - Sie saßen und tranken am Theetisch, Und sprachen von Liebe viel. Die Herren die waren ästhetisch, Die Damen von zartem Gefühl. Die Liebe muß seyn platonisch, Der dürre Geheimrath sprach. Die Räthin lächelt ironisch, Und dennoch seufzet sie: Ach! Der Domherr öffnet den Mund weit: Die Liebe sey nicht zu roh, Sie schadet sonst der Gesundheit.
Página 197 - He was neither dark nor fair, neither tall nor short, not well-looking, nor the reverse; his features were so little distinctive that no two persons who had passed half an hour in his company would agree in their account of the colour of his eyes or hair, the shape of his nose, or the height of his person, though generally unanimous in acknowledging his social qualities.
