Halaman 127 - I could have compass'd sea and land To do her bidding. Lady. Is she young or old ? Page. Neither, if right I guess ; but she is fair, For Time hath laid his hand so gently on her, As he, too, had been awed.
Halaman 35 - Than robes riche, or fidel, or sautrie. But all be that he was a philosophre, Yet hadde he but litel gold in cofre...
Halaman 1 - Though sluggards deem it but a foolish chase, And marvel men should quit their easy chair, The toilsome way, and long, long league to trace, Oh! there is sweetness in the mountain air, And Life, that bloated Ease can never hope to share.
Halaman 113 - My head besprent with hoary frost I find, And by mine eye the crow his claw doth write : Delight is laid abed; and pleasure past; No sun now shines; clouds have all overcast.
Halaman 304 - When we were parted ? oh ! couldst thou but know With what a deep devotedness of woe 1 wept thy absence — o'er and o'er again Thinking of thee, still thee, till thought grew pain, And memory, like a drop that, night and day, Falls cold and ceaseless, wore my heart away.

Halaman 260 - Right fit to rend the food on which he fared. His name was Care ; a blacksmith by his trade, That neither day nor night from working spared, But to small purpose yron wedges made ; Those be unquiet thoughts that carefull minds invade.
Halaman 66 - You sign your place and calling in full seeming, With meekness and humility; but your heart Is cramm'd with arrogancy, spleen, and pride. You have, by fortune and his highness' favours, Gone slightly o'er low steps, and now are mounted Where powers are your retainers; and your words , Domestics to you, serve your will, as 't please Yourself pronounce their office. I must tell you...
Halaman 35 - But all that he might of his frendes hente, On bokes and on lerning he it spente, And besily gan for the soules praie Of hem, that yave him wherwith to scolaie.
