Halaman 41 - Next cool, and all unconscious of reproach, Comes the calm " Johnny who upset the coach." * How form'd to lead, if not too proud to please, — His fame would fire you, but his manners freeze. Like or dislike, he does not care a jot ; He wants your vote, but your...
Halaman 39 - Nor gout, nor toil, his freshness can destroy, And Time still leaves all Eton in the boy ; — First in the class, and keenest in the ring, He saps like Gladstone, and he fights like Spring ! Ev'n at the feast, his pluck pervades the board, And dauntless game-cocks symbolize their lord.
Halaman 42 - Dim to all else, but to ourselves the sun ; And still, to each, some poor, obscurest life, Breathes all the bliss, or kindles all the strife. Wake up the countless dead ! — ask every ghost Whose influence tortured or consoled the most: How each pale spectre of the host would turn From the fresh laurel and the glorious urn, To point, where rots beneath a nameless stone, Some heart in which had ebb'd and flow'd its own ! What marvel then that sad Calantha's eye Roved listless o'er the nobler passers-by...
Halaman 31 - It was not mirth, for mirth she was too still, It was not wit, wit leaves the heart more chill; But that continuous sweetness, which with ease Pleases all round it, from the wish to please...
Halaman 40 - Decorous Bob, too friendly to reprove, Suggests fresh fighting in the next remove, And prompts his chum, in hopes the vein to cool, To the prim benches of the Upper School : Yet who not listens, with delighted smile, To the pure Saxon of that silver style ; In the clear style a heart as clear is seen, Prompt to the rash — revolting from the mean. Next cool, and all unconscious of reproach, Comes the calm " Johnny who upset the coach."* How formed to lead, if not too proud to please, — His fame...
Halaman 39 - One after one, the Lords of Time advance; Here Stanley meets — how Stanley scorns ! — the glance. The brilliant chief, irregularly great, Frank, haughty, rash, the Rupert of Debate ; Nor gout nor toil his freshness can destroy, And time still leaves all Eton in the boy.
Halaman 6 - And low the form, tho' lightly shaped the limb ; Yet life glowed vigorous in that deep set eye, With a calm force that dared you to defy ; And the small foot* was planted on the stone Firm as a gnome's upon his mountain throne ; Simple his garb, yet what the wealthy wear, And conscious power gave lordship to his air. Lone in the Babel thus the maid and man ; Long he gazed silent, and at last began : — " Poor homeless outcast — dost thou see me stand Close by thy side — yet beg not ? Stretch...
Halaman 36 - Robert rides — he never rides at speedCareful his seat, and circumspect his gaze ; And still the cautious trot the cautious mind betrays. Wise is thy heed ! — how stout soe'er his back, Thy weight has oft proved fatal to thy hack ! Next, with loose rein and careless canter view Our man of men, the Prince of Waterloo ; O'er the firm brow the hat as firmly prest, The firm shape rigid in the button'd vest...
Halaman 157 - Though his gay conscience many a heavier crime Than this had borne, and drifted off to Time; Though this but sport with a fond heart which Fate Had given to master, but denied to mate, Yet seem'd it as in that least sin arose The shapes of all the opening deeps disclose ; The general phantom of a life whose waste Ravaged each bloom by which its path was traced, Sporting at will, and moulding sport to art, With that sad holiness — the Human Heart!
Halaman 194 - Thou ask'st why Christ, so lenient to the deed, So sternly claims the faith which founds the creed ; Because, reposed in faith the soul has calm ; The hope a haven and the wound a balm ; Because the light, dim seen in Reason's dream, On all alike, through faith alone, could stream. God will'd support to Weakness, joy to Grief, And so descended from his throne — BELIEF...
