Halaman 64 - The blue fly sung i' the pane ; the mouse Behind the mouldering wainscot shrieked, Or from the crevice peered about. Old faces glimmered through the doors, Old footsteps trod the upper floors, Old voices called her from without. She only said, " My life is dreary, He cometh not...
Halaman 247 - Art is long, and Time is fleeting, And our hearts, though stout and brave, Still, like muffled drums, are beating Funeral marches to the grave.
Halaman 245 - Yet was I calm : I knew the time My breast would thrill before thy look ; But now to tremble were a crime — We met, — and not a nerve was shook.
Halaman 75 - Lady Clara Vere de Vere, When thus he met his mother's view, She had the passions of her kind, She spake some certain truths of you. Indeed I heard one bitter word That scarce is fit for you to hear ; Her manners had not that repose Which stamps the caste of Vere de Vere. Lady Clara Vere de Vere, There stands a spectre in your hall : The guilt of blood is at your door : You changed a wholesome heart to gall.
Halaman 298 - Patience, and abnegation of self, and devotion to others, This was the lesson a life of trial and sorrow had taught her. So was her love diffused, but, like to some odorous spices, Suffered no waste nor loss, though filling the air with aroma.
Halaman 42 - — on sudden solitude How oft that fearful question will intrude ! " 'Twas but an instant past — and here he stood ! And now " — without the portal's porch she rushed, And then at length her tears in freedom gushed ; Big — bright — and fast, unknown to her they fell; But still her lips refused to send — " Farewell !

Death— death alone could break that chain." Then for an instant — then, as once before, a vision of freedom passed before her, not as a deliberate thought — far less a hope. But she could not escape the consciousness that this dreadful idea had shot through her mind like a dark phantom, " If he were to die I should be free.
Halaman 1 - ... modification. (12) Next, we give examples of the conjunctive pronoun employed as genitive case modification in the accessory proposition. We have six examples in the following lines : — " Happy and worthiest of esteem are those Whose words are bonds, whose oaths are oracles, Whose love sincere, whose thoughts immaculate, Whose tears pure messengers, sent from the heart, Whose heart as far from fraud as heaven from earth.
Halaman 298 - God is good," in ecstasy she goes. Oh ! there are endless means and ways, some stormy and some sweet, Through which God's guiding hand conducts His favoured children's feet ; Thorns are in all, but some have few to tread down as they go, And every shrub or tree they pass its blossoms o'er them throw. The bleeding feet, the aching brow, the desert's scorching air, The tempter's lures, the inward strife, they are not doom'd 93 Which are most blest ? We dare not say.
Halaman 211 - And now I exhort you to be of good cheer. For there shall be no loss of any man's life among you, but only of the ship. 23 For an Angel of God, whose I am, and whom I serve, stood by me this night, 24 Saying : Fear not, Paul, thou must be brought before Cesar : and behold God hath given thee all them that sail with thee.
