Halaman 173 - STERN Daughter of the Voice of God ! O Duty ! if that name thou love Who art a light to guide, a rod To check the erring, and reprove ; Thou, who art victory and law When empty terrors overawe, From vain temptations dost set free, And calm'st the weary strife of frail humanity!
Halaman 94 - I have considered well his loss of time ; And how he cannot be a perfect man, Not being tried and tutored in the world: Experience is by industry achieved, And perfected by the swift course of time : Then, tell me, whither were I best to send him?
Halaman 288 - ... among the sedge, And floating water-lilies, broad and bright, Which lit the oak that overhung the hedge With moonlight beams of their own watery light; And bulrushes, and reeds of such deep green As soothed the dazzled eye with sober sheen.

Halaman 182 - Alas ! if we murmur at things like these, That reflection tells us are wise decrees ; That the wind is not ever a gentle breath — That the sun is often the bearer of death — That the...

Such was the tale of the Kilmansegg Kin, In golden text on a vellum skin.
