Seite 45 - His transport's most impetuous tone, And to each passion of his breast The graces gave their zone. High were the task — too high, Ye conscious bosoms here ! In words to paint your memory Of Kemble and of Lear; But who forgets that white discrowned head, Those bursts of reason's half-extinguish'd glare — Those tears upon Cordelia's bosom shed, In doubt more touching than despair, If 'twas reality he felt?

Seite 471 - Kent. Vex not his ghost. O, let him pass! He hates him That would upon the rack of this tough world Stretch him out longer.
Seite 117 - Our tender plants, how blows the citron grove, What drops the myrrh, and what the balmy reed, How nature paints her colours, how the bee Sits on the bloom extracting liquid sweet.
