Сторінка 170 - he's safe ! the battle's won !" — A ball now hisses through the airy tides, Some Fury winged it, and some Demon guides ! — Parts the fine locks, her graceful head that deck, Wounds her fair ear, and sinks into her neck ; The red stream issuing from her azure veins, Dyes her white veil, her ivory bosom stains.
Сторінка 126 - ye rising realms record Time's opening scenes, and Truth's unerring word. — There shall broad streets their stately walls extend, The circus widen, and the crescent bend ; There ray'd from cities o'er the cultured land, Shall bright canals, and solid roads expand.— There the proud arch, Colossus-like, bestride Yon glittering streams, and bound the chasing tide ; Embellished villas crown the landscape scene, Farms wave with gold, and orchards blush between.
Сторінка 173 - HARK ! heard ye not that piercing cry, Which shook the waves, and rent the sky ? — < E'en now, e'en now, on yonder western shores, Weeps pale despair, and writhing anguish roars ; E'en now in Afric's groves with hideous yell Fierce SLAVERY stalks, and slips the dogs of hell ; From vale to vale the gathering cries rebound> And sable nations tremble at the sound...

Сторінка 37 - The same appearance of moving pillars of sand presented themselves to us this day in form and disposition like those we had seen at Waadi Halboub, only they seemed to be more in number and less in size.
Сторінка 169 - Pleased with the distant roar, with quicker tread, Fast by his hand one lisping boy she led; And one fair girl amid the loud alarm Slept on her kerchief, cradled by her arm...
Сторінка 62 - Roll on, ye stars, exult in youthful prime ; Mark with bright curves the printless steps of Time ; Near and more near your beamy cars approach, And lessening orbs on lessening orbs encroach. Flowers of the sky ! ye too to age must yield, Frail as your silken sisters of the field...
Сторінка 161 - To caves bestrew'd with many a mouldering bone, And cells, whose echoes only learn to groan ; Where no kind bars a whispering friend disclose, No sunbeam enters, and no zephyr blows — He treads, inemulous of fame or wealth, Profuse of toil, and prodigal of health...
