Página 40 - The expectancy and rose of the fair state, The glass of fashion and the mould of form, The observ'd of all observers, — quite, quite down ! And I, of ladies most deject and wretched, That suck'd the honey of his music vows, Now see that noble and most sovereign reason, Like sweet bells jangled, out of tune and harsh...
Página 150 - There was a sound of revelry by night, And Belgium's capital had gathered then Her Beauty and her Chivalry, and bright The lamps shone o'er fair women and brave men ; A thousand hearts beat happily ; and when Music arose with its voluptuous swell, Soft eyes looked love to eyes which spake again, And all went merry as a marriage bell...
Página 218 - What is the world to them, Its pomp, its pleasure, and its nonsense all, Who in each other clasp whatever fair High fancy forms, and lavish hearts can wish ! Something than beauty dearer, should they look Or on the mind, or mind-illumined face ; Truth, goodness, honour, harmony, and love, The richest bounty of indulgent Heaven.
Página 74 - A BEAUTIFUL and happy girl, With step as light as summer air, Eyes glad with smiles, and brow of pearl, Shadowed by many a careless curl Of unconfined and flowing hair ; A seeming child in everything, Save thoughtful brow and ripening charms, As Nature wears the smile of Spring When sinking into Summer's arms.

Página 17 - THE island lies nine leagues away. Along its solitary shore, Of craggy rock and sandy bay, No sound but ocean's roar, Save where the bold, wild sea-bird makes her home, Her shrill cry coming through the sparkling foam. But when the light winds lie at rest, And on the glassy, heaving sea, The black duck, with her glossy breast, Sits swinging silently, How beautiful ! No ripples break the reach, And silvery waves go noiseless up the beach.
Página 103 - But in that patience was the seed of scorn — Scorn of the world and brotherhood of man ; Not patience such as in the manger born Up to the cross endured its earthly span. Thou must endure, yet loving all the while, Above, yet never separate from, thy kind, — Meet every frailty with the gentlest smile, Though to no possible depth of evil blind. This is the riddle thou hast life to solve ; But in the task thou shalt not work alone : For, while the worlds about the sun revolve, God's heart and mind...
