الصفحة 146 - Brief is life, and brevity Briefly shall be ended: Death comes like a whirlwind strong, Bears us with his blast along; None shall be defended. Live this university, Men that learning nourish; Live each member of the same, Long live all that bear its name; Let them ever flourish I Live the commonwealth also, And the men that guide it!
الصفحة 64 - Right it is old age should ponder On grave matters fraught with care ; Tender youth is free to wander, Free to frolic light as air. Like a dream our prime is flown, Prisoned in a study : Sport and folly are youth's own, Tender youth and ruddy.
الصفحة 145 - LET us live, then, and be glad While young life's before us! After youthful pastime had, After old age, hard and sad, Earth will slumber o'er us.
الصفحة 7 - The scholars," wrote a monk of Froidmont in the twelfth century, " are wont to roam around the world and visit all its cities, till much learning makes them mad ; for in Paris they seek liberal arts, in Orleans authors, at Salerno gallipots, at Toledo demons, and in no place decent manners.
الصفحة 67 - PASTORAL THERE went out in the dawning light A little rustic maiden; Her flock so white, her crook so slight, With fleecy new wool laden. Small is the flock, and there you'll see The she-ass and the wether; This goat's a he, and that's a she, The bull-calf and the heifer.

Such are the sapphics on the spring, which, though they date from the seventh century, have a truly modern sentiment of Nature. Such, too, is the...
الصفحة 38 - With the cup the soul lights up, Inspirations flicker; Nectar lifts the soul on high With its heavenly ichor: To my lips a sounder taste Hath the tavern's liquor Than the wine a village clerk Waters for the vicar.
الصفحة 30 - I, a wandering scholar lad, Born for toil and sadness, Oftentimes am driven by Poverty to madness. Literature and knowledge I Fain would still be earning, Were it not that want of pelf Makes me cease from learning. These torn clothes that cover me Are too thin and rotten; Oft I have to suffer cold, By the warmth forgotten. Scarce I can attend at church, Sing God's praises duly; Mass and vespers both I miss, Though I love them truly. Oh, thou pride of N , By thy worth I pray thee Give the suppliant...
الصفحة 30 - A WANDERING STUDENT'S PETITION. No. 3. I, a wandering scholar lad, Born for toil and sadness, Oftentimes am driven by Poverty to madness. Literature and knowledge I Fain would still be earning, Were it not that want of pelf Makes me cease from learning. These torn clothes that cover me Are too thin and rotten ; Oft I have to suffer cold, By the warmth forgotten.
