Halaman 189 - And now we've told you all our loves, And likewise all our fears, In hopes this declaration moves Some pity from your tears ; Let's hear of no inconstancy, We have too much of that at sea. With a fa, la, la, la, la.
Halaman 26 - Twas far from any path, but where the Earth Was bare, and naked all as at her birth, When by the Word it first was made, Ere God had said, Let grass, and herds, and every green thing grow, With fruitful trees after their kind, and it was so.
Halaman 324 - Would soon finish his woes. When in rage he came there, Beholding how steep The sides did appear, And the bottom how deep; His torments projecting, And sadly reflecting, That a lover forsaken A new love may get, But a neck, when once broken, Can never be set: And, that he could die Whenever he would...

Halaman 301 - LET the dull merchant curse his angry fate, And from the winds and waves his fortune wait: Let the loud lawyer break his brains, and be A slave to wrangling coxcombs for a fee: Let the rough soldier fight his prince's foes, And for a livelihood his life expose: I wage no war, I plead no cause but love's, I fear no storms, but what Celinda moves.
Halaman 52 - Diana be ador'd alone ; Must she have all thy vows and Venus none ? That pleasure palls, if 'tis enjoy'd too long ; Love makes the weary firm, the feeble strong.
Halaman 321 - T' increase that wealth he wants the soul to spend. Poor Shifter does his whole contrivance set, To spend that wealth he wants the sense to get. How happy would appear to each his fate. Had Gripe his humour, or he Gripe's estate 1 Kind Fate and Fortune, blend them if you can, And of two wretches make one happy man!
