الصفحة 269 - They, looking back, all the eastern side beheld Of Paradise, so late their happy seat, Waved over by that flaming brand; the gate With dreadful faces thronged and fiery arms. Some natural tears they dropped, but wiped them soon; The world was all before them, where to choose Their place of rest, and Providence their guide.
الصفحة 309 - Which the great lord inhabits not ; and so This grove is wild with tangling underwood, And the trim walks are broken up, and grass, Thin grass and king-cups grow within the paths. But never elsewhere in one place I knew So many Nightingales ; and far and near, In wood and thicket, over the wide grove, They answer and provoke each other's song, With skirmish and capricious passagings, And murmurs musical and swift jug jug, And one low piping Sound more sweet than all...

الصفحة 373 - That changed through all, and yet in all the same, Great in the earth as in the ethereal frame, Warms in the sun, refreshes in the breeze, Glows in the stars, and blossoms in the trees : Lives through all life, extends through all extent, Spreads undivided, operates unspent...
الصفحة 15 - And filled the illumined groves with ravishment. The nightly Hunter, lifting up his eyes Towards the crescent Moon, with grateful heart Called on the lovely wanderer who bestowed That timely light, to share his joyous sport : And hence, a beaming Goddess with her...

الصفحة 14 - Could find commodious place for every God, Promptly received, as prodigally brought, From the surrounding Countries — at the choice Of all Adventurers. With unrivalled skill, As nicest observation furnished hints For studious fancy, did his hand bestow On fluent Operations a fixed Shape ; Metal or Stone, idolatrously served.
الصفحة 310 - On moon-lit bushes, Whose dewy leaflets are but half disclosed, You may perchance behold them on the twigs, Their bright, bright eyes, their eyes both bright and full, Glistening, while many a glow-worm in the shade Lights up her love-torch.
الصفحة 354 - Son Of great Latona, what a speech is this ! Why come you here to ask me what is done With the wild oxen which it seems you miss ? I have not seen them, nor from any one Have heard a word of the whole business; If you should promise an immense reward, I could not tell more than you now have heard...
الصفحة 26 - Greek, — the shrine of the genius of the old world; as universal as our race, as individual as ourselves ; of infinite flexibility, of indefatigable strength, with the complication and the distinctness of nature herself; to which nothing was vulgar, from which nothing was excluded ; speaking to the ear like Italian, speaking to the mind like English; with words like pictures, with words like the gossamer film of the summer; at once the variety and picturesquene.ss of Homer, the gloom and the intensity...
