Сторінка 137 - Ev'n from the grave thou shall have power to charm.

Сторінка 131 - Unpropp'd by staff, support me to behold How Nature, to her Maker's mandate true, Calls Spring's impartial heralds to the view, The snow-drop pale, the crocus spik'd with gold ; And still (thank Heaven) if I not falsely deem, My lyre, yet vocal, freely can afford Strains not discordant to each moral theme Fair Truth inspires, and aid me to record (Best of poetic...
