Halaman 52 - She moved upon this earth a shape of brightness, A power, that from its objects scarcely drew One impulse of her being — in her lightness • Most like some radiant cloud of morning dew Which wanders through the waste air's pathless blue To nourish some far desert ; she did seem Beside me, gathering beauty as she grew, Like the bright shade of some immortal dream Which walks, when tempest sleeps, the wave of life's dark stream.

Halaman 103 - ... before. Yet many of his verses consist of ten syllables, and the words not much behind our present English ; as, for example, these two lines in the description of the carpenter's young wife : " Wincing she was, as is a jolly colt, Long as a mast, and upright as a bolt.
Halaman 74 - In their manners they were boisterous and abrupt; they assimilated pretty closely to the young squires of Osbaldiston — Messrs.
