Seite 123 - MINE be a cot beside the hill; A bee-hive's hum shall soothe my ear; A willowy brook that turns a mill, With many a fall shall linger near. The swallow oft beneath my thatch Shall twitter from her clay-built nest ; Oft shall the pilgrim lift the latch, And share my meal, a welcome guest. Around my ivied porch shall spring Each fragrant flower that drinks the dew ; And Lucy at her wheel shall sing In russet gown and apron blue. The village church among the trees, Where first our marriage-vows were...

This part of the exercise pleases the spectators more than any other, as it discovers, on a sudden, an infinite number of...
Seite 199 - Love took up the glass of Time, and turned it in his glowing hands ; Every moment, lightly shaken, ran itself in golden sands. Love took up the harp of Life, and smote on all the chords with might — Smote the chord of Self, that, trembling, passed in music out of sight.
Seite 421 - I am sure you can't see," said Bessy presently, looking round. "It is almost blindman's holiday, dear. Will you ring for the lamp ?'' Mrs. Rane rose.

You will find all the benefit of it ; and it is not quite time to light the lamp. Let us take a stroll in the garden.
Seite 202 - Th' innumerous ills, that rush around his life : Mark the quick kite, with beak and talons prone, Circling the skies to snatch him from the plain ; Observe the lurking crows ; beware the brake, There the sly fox the careless minute waits ; Nor trust thy neighbour's dog, nor earth, nor sky ; Thy bosom to a thousand cares divide.
Seite 331 - But mankind — the race would perish did they cease to aid each other. — From the time that the mother binds the child's head till the moment that some kind assistant wipes the death-damp from the brow of the dying, we cannot exist without mutual help.
