الصفحة 135 - FAR in a wild, unknown to public view, From youth to age a reverend hermit grew ; The moss his bed, the cave his humble cell, His food the fruits, his drink the crystal well : Remote from man, with God he pass'd the days, Prayer all his business, all his pleasure praise.

الصفحة 268 - Knight," answered Rebecca, faintly ; then instantly again shouted, with joyful eagerness, "but no ! but no...
الصفحة 269 - The Templar has destroyed the plank on which they crossed — few of the defenders escaped with him into the castle — the shrieks and cries which you hear tell the fate of the others. Alas ! I see that it is still more difficult to look upon victory than upon battle.
الصفحة 269 - Knight approaches the postern with his huge axe - the thundering blows which he deals, you may hear them above all the din and shouts of the battle Stones and beams are hailed down on the bold champion - he regards them no more than if they were thistle-down or feathers!"
