Сторінка 277 - 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. Let old Timotheus yield the prize, Or both divide the crown : He raised a mortal to the skies: She drew an angel down.
Сторінка 290 - Ay me! I fondly dream — Had ye been there — for what could that have done? What could the Muse herself that Orpheus bore.

Сторінка 274 - And as for what your brain bewilders, If I can "rid your town of rats Will you give me a thousand guilders?
