Сторінка 179 - O'erhung with wild woods, thick'ning green ; The fragrant birch, and hawthorn hoar, Twin'd am'rous round the raptured scene; The flowers sprang wanton to be prest, The birds sang love on every spray — Till too, too soon, the glowing west Proclaim'd the speed of winged day.

A lad who stood by then drew it, till it enveloped his nose, eyes, mouth, and ears ; his arms were raised above his head, and for some minutes...
Сторінка 320 - Milton smiling with superior love, now slightly varying the streaks of paint upon his cheeks and forehead, and then pushing or pulling each particular hair of his eyebrows into its most becoming place. Could the youth have seen anything in that mirror half so dangerous as the features which the glassy wave gave back to the gaze 2,.
