Сторінка 191 - A PSALM OF LIFE. LONGFELLOW. TELL me not in mournful numbers, " Life is but an empty dream !" For the soul is dead that slumbers, And things are not what they seem. Life is real! Life is earnest! And this world is not its goal;
Сторінка 166 - a portion with judicious care; And " Let us worship God," he says, wi' solemn air. They chant their artless notes in simple guise: They tune their hearts, by far the noblest aim; Perhaps Dundee's wild warbling measures rise, Or plaintive Martyrs, worthy of the name, Or noble Elgin,
Сторінка 150 - I change, but I cannot die. For after the rain, when with never a stain, And the nursling of the sky: I pass through the pores of the ocean and shores ; The pavilion of heaven is bare, And the winds and sunbeams with their convex gleams, Build up the blue dome of
Сторінка 250 - At last divine Cecilia came, Inventress of the vocal frame ; The sweet enthusiast, from her sacred store, Enlarged the former narrow bounds, And added length to solemn sounds, With Nature's mother-wit, and arts unknown before.

Now, give the hautboys breath; he comes ! he comes!
Сторінка 249 - These are Grecian ghosts, that in battle were slain, And unburied remain Inglorious on the plain ; Give the vengeance due To the valiant crew : Behold how they toss their torches on high ! How they point to the Persian abodes, And glitt'ring temples of their hostile gods! The Princes applaud, with
Сторінка 249 - joy ; And the king seized a flambeau, with zeal to destroy ; Thai's led the way, To light him to his prey, And, like another Helen, fired another Troy.
