Seite 24 - The moon is up, and yet it is not night — Sunset divides the sky with her — a sea Of glory streams along the Alpine height Of blue Friuli's mountains ; heaven is free From clouds, but of all colours seems to be Melted to one vast Iris of the West, Where the day joins the past Eternity; While, on the other hand, meek Dian's crest Floats through the azure air — an island of the blest...
Seite 24 - Nature reclaim'd her order : — gently flows The deep-dyed Brenta, where their hues instil The odorous purple of a new-born rose, Which streams upon her stream, and glass'd within it glows. Fill'd with the face of heaven, which, from afar Comes down upon the waters: all its hues.
Seite 59 - There is one that passeth all the others, and is the most diligent prelate and preacher in all England. And will ye know who it is ? I will tell you; it is the devil. He is the most diligent preacher of all others; he is never out of his diocese...
Seite 59 - Where the devil is resident, that he may prevail, up with all superstition and idolatry ; censing, painting of images, candles, palms, ashes, holy water, and new service of men's inventing : as though man could invent a better way to honour God with, than God himself hath appointed.
Seite 25 - Fill'd with the face of heaven, which, from afar, Comes down upon the waters; all its hues, From the rich sunset to the rising star, Their magical variety diffuse: And now they change ; a paler shadow strews Its mantle o'er the mountains; parting day Dies like the dolphin, whom each pang imbues •*> With a new colour as it gasps away, The last still loveliest, — till — 'tis gone — and all is gray.
Seite 60 - God with, than God himself hath appointed. Down with Christ's cross, up with purgatory pickpurse, up with him, the popish purgatory, I mean. Away with clothing the naked, the poor and impotent, up with decking of images, and gay garnishing of stocks and Stones : up with man's traditions and his laws, down with God's traditions and his most holy word.
Seite 228 - Wherefore, O king, let my counsel be acceptable unto thee, and break off thy sins by righteousness and thine iniquities by showing mercy to the poor, if it may be a lengthening of thy tranquillity.
Seite 59 - I will tell you: it is the devil. He is the most diligent preacher of all other; he is never out of his diocese ; he is never from his cure; ye shall never find him unoccupied ; he is ever in his parish ; he keepeth residence at all times ; ye shall never find him out of the way, call for him when you will he is ever at home ; the diligentest preacher in all the realm ; he is ever at his plough ; no lording nor loitering can hinder him ; he is ever applying his business, ye shall never find him idle...
Seite 147 - Corrib, and through it, to the bay of Galway; the other part drains into the western bays. One has but to glance at the map, to see how much nature has done for...
Seite 59 - Where the devil is resident, and hath his plough going, there away with books and up with candles ; away with Bibles and up with beads ; away with the light of the gospel, and up with the light of candles, yea, at noon-day.
