الصفحة 122 - Lives of great men all remind us We can make our lives sublime, And, departing, leave behind us, Footprints on the sands of time; Footprints, that perhaps another, Sailing o'er life's solemn main, A forlorn and shipwrecked brother, Seeing, shall take heart again.
الصفحة 159 - To them his heart, his love, his griefs were given, But all his serious thoughts had rest in Heaven.

الصفحة 200 - Not yet enslaved, not wholly vile, O Albion ! O my mother isle ! Thy valleys, fair as Eden's bowers, Glitter green with sunny showers ; Thy grassy uplands' gentle swells Echo to the bleat of flocks {Those grassy hills, those glittering dells Proudly ramparted with rocks) ; And Ocean, 'mid his uproar wild, Speaks safety to his island-child ! Hence, for many a fearless age Has social Quiet loved thy shore ! Nor ever proud invader's rage Or sacked thy towers, or stained thy fields with gore.
الصفحة 51 - There rolls the deep where grew the tree. O earth, what changes hast thou seen! There where the long street roars, hath been The stillness of the central sea. The hills are shadows, and they flow From form to form, and nothing stands ; They melt like mist, the solid lands, Like clouds they shape themselves and go. But in my spirit will I dwell, And dream my dream, and hold it true ; For tho' my lips may breathe adieu, I cannot think the thing farewell.
الصفحة 106 - There is a path which no fowl knoweth, And which the vulture's eye hath not seen: The lion's whelps have not trodden it, Nor the fierce lion passed by it.
