الصفحة 695 - What if it tempt you toward the flood, my lord, Or to the dreadful summit of the cliff That beetles o'er his base into the sea, And there assume some other horrible form, Which might deprive your sovereignty of reason And draw you into madness? think of it; The very place puts toys of desperation, Without more motive, into every brain That looks so many fathoms to the sea And hears it roar beneath.
الصفحة 695 - But, look, the morn, in russet mantle clad, Walks o'er the dew of yon high eastern hill...
الصفحة 648 - There is a glorious city in the sea; The sea is in the broad, the narrow streets, Ebbing and flowing; and the salt sea-weed Clings to the marble of her palaces. No track of men, no footsteps to and fro, Lead to her gates! The path lies o'er the sea, Invisible: and from the land we went, As to a floating city — steering in, And gliding up her streets, as in a dream...
الصفحة 837 - HIGH on a throne of royal state, which far Outshone the wealth of Ormus and of Ind, Or where the gorgeous East with richest hand Showers on her kings barbaric pearl and gold...
الصفحة 826 - And the glory of the Lord abode upon mount Sinai, and the cloud covered it six days : and the seventh day he called unto Moses out of the midst of the cloud. And the sight of the glory of the Lord was like devouring fire on the top of the mount in the eyes of the children of Israel.

الصفحة 802 - That which was torn of beasts I brought not unto thee : I bare the loss of it : of my hand didst thou require it, whether stolen by day or stolen by night. Thus I was ; in the day the drought consumed me, and the frost by night ; and my sleep departed from mine eyes.
الصفحة 958 - Plato sat under its shadow: of all the obelisks which sprung up around it, it alone has kept its first position. One by one, it has seen its sons and brothers depart to great destinies elsewhere. From these gardens came the obelisks of the Lateran, of the Vatican, and of the Porta del Popólo; and this venerable pillar (for so it looks from a distance) is now almost the only landmark of the great seat of the wisdom of Egypt.
الصفحة 825 - The lasaf. or asaf, the caper plant, the bright green creeper, which climbs out of the fissures of the rocks in the Sinaitic valleys, has been identified on grounds of great probability with the hyssop or ezob of Scripture, and thus explains whence came the green branches used, even in the desert, for sprinkling the water over the tents of the Israelites.
