Сторінка 181 - Scowls o'er the darkened landscape snow, or shower ; If chance the radiant sun with farewell sweet Extend his evening beam, the fields revive, The birds their notes renew> and bleating herds Attest their joy, that- hill and valley rings.
Сторінка 131 - And lost in lonely musing, in a dream. Confused, of careless solitude, where mix Ten thousand wandering images of things. Soothe every gust of passion into peace, All but the swellings of the softened heart. That waken, not disturb, the tranquil mind.
Сторінка xviii - Yet, in fair, it is not fo : for the rules of pifturefque beauty, we know, are drawn from nature ; fo that to examine the face of nature by thefe rules, is no more than to examine nature by her own moft beautiful exertions. Thus Shakefpear : -There is an art. Which does mend Nature— change it rather : but That art...
Сторінка 1 - Angleterre, il ne sera pas hors de propos de jeter un coup d'oeil rapide sur les grands traits de ce pays, d'où sa beauté pittoresque dépend en si grande partie.
