الصفحة 155 - But happy they, the happiest of their kind, Whom gentler stars unite, and in one fate Their hearts, their fortunes, and their beings blend ! 'Tis not the coarser tie of human laws, Unnatural oft, and foreign to the mind, That binds their peace, but harmony itself, Attuning all their passions into love ; Where friendship full exerts her softest power, Perfect esteem enliven'd by desire Ineffable, and sympathy of soul ; Thought meeting thought, and will preventing will, With boundless confidence :...
الصفحة 155 - Tis not the coarser tie of human laws, Unnatural oft, and foreign to the mind, That binds their peace, but harmony itself, Attuning all their passions into love ; Where friendship full exerts her softest power, Perfect esteem enliven'd by desire Ineffable, and sympathy of soul; Thought meeting thought, and will preventing will, With boundless confidence : for nought but Jove Can answer love, and render bliss secure.
الصفحة 199 - 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-illumin'd face — Truth, goodness, honour, harmony, and love, The richest bounty of indulgent Heaven.
الصفحة 16 - The stars shall fade away, the sun himself Grow dim with age, and Nature sink in years, But thou shalt flourish in immortal youth, Unhurt amidst the war of elements, The wreck of matter, and the crush of worlds.

الصفحة 25 - Troubled on every side, yet not distressed ; perplexed, but not in despair ; persecuted, but not forsaken ; cast down, but not destroyed ; always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus.
الصفحة 24 - Framed every tie that binds the heart to prove, Her duty friendship, and her friendship love. But yet, remembering that the parting sigh Appoints the just to slumber, not to die, The starting tear I check'd, — I kiss'd the rod, — And not to earth resign'd her, but to God ! SILENT WORSHIP.
الصفحة 207 - And Hazael said. But what, is thy servant a dog, that he should do this great thing?
الصفحة 76 - Mankind my foes ; and only love to friend : But such a love, kept at such awful distance, As, what it loudly dares to tell a rival, Shall fear to whisper there. Queens may be loved, And so may gods ; else why are altars raised ? Why shines the sun, but that he may be viewed?
الصفحة 174 - And plunge th' exulting maniac in despair. Then O ! with pious fortitude sustain Thy present loss — haply, thy future gain ; Nor let thy Emma die in vain ; Time shall administer its wonted balm, And hush this storm of grief to no unpleasing calm. Thus the poor bird, by some disastrous fate, Caught and...
