الصفحة 26 - As when in heaven the stars about the moon Look beautiful, when all the winds are laid, And every height comes out, and jutting peak And valley, and the immeasurable heavens Break open to their highest, and all the stars Shine, and the Shepherd gladdens in his heart...
الصفحة 25 - Big with great purposes and proud, they sat, Not disarray'd, but in fair form disposed Of even ranks, and watch'd their numerous fires. As when around the clear bright moon, the stars Shine in full splendour, and the winds are hush'd, The groves, the mountain-tops, the headland heights Stand all apparent, not a vapour streaks The boundless blue, and ether open'd wide ; All glitters, and the shepherd's heart is cheer'd.
الصفحة 27 - For my prophetic soul foresees a day When Ilium ; Ilium's people ; and, himself, Her warlike king, shall perish. But no grief For Ilium ; for her people ; for the king, My warlike sire ; nor even for the queen ; Nor for the...
الصفحة 25 - So numerous seem'd those fires, between the stream Of Xanthus blazing, and the fleet of Greece, In prospect all of Troy, a thousand fires, Each watch'd by fifty warriors, seated near ; The steeds beside the chariot stood, their corn Chewing, and waiting till the golden-throned Aurora should restore the light of day.
الصفحة 27 - ... Sorely against thy will, by strong Necessity's order. And some man may say, as he looks and sees thy tears falling: See, the wife of Hector, that great preeminent captain Of the horsemen of Troy, in the day they fought for their city. So some man will say ; and then thy grief will redouble At thy want of a man like me, to save thee from bondage. But let me be dead, and the earth be mounded above me, Ere I hear thy cries, and thy captivity told of.
الصفحة 32 - To the vast camp. Fair wind, and blowing fresh, Apollo sent them ; quick they rear'd the mast, Then spread the unsullied canvass to the gale, And the wind filled it. Roared the sable flood Around the bark, that ever as she went Dash'd wide the brine, that scudded swift away.
الصفحة 27 - Thy cares are all mine also. But I dread The matron's scorn, the brave man's just disdain, Should fear seduce me to desert the field. No ! my Andromache ! my fearless heart — Me rather urges into foremost fight, Studious of Priam's glory and my own. For my prophetic soul foresees a day, When Ilium, Ilium's people, and himself Her warlike king shall perish. But no grief For Ilium ; for her people ; for the king, My warlike sire ; nor even for the queen ; Nor for the numerous and the valiant band,...
الصفحة 15 - THESE lame hexameters the strong-wing'd music of Homer! No — but a most burlesque barbarous experiment. When was a harsher sound ever heard, ye Muses, in England ? When did a frog coarser croak upon our Helicon ? Hexameters no worse than daring Germany gave us, Barbarous experiment, barbarous hexameters.
الصفحة 27 - Nor would my own heart let me; my heart, which has bid me be valiant Always, and always fighting among the first of the Trojans, Busy for Priam's fame and my own, in spite of the future. For that day will come, my soul is assur'd of its coming, It will come, when sacred Troy shall go to destruction, Troy, and warlike Priam too, and the people of Priam.
