Halaman 196 - Arden's lofty name, Her pastor-grandsire's virtues shield from shame ; As flowers, which night, when day is o'er, perfume, Breathes the sweet memory from a good man's tomb. Pity seeks kind pretext to pour its balms, And yields light toils that saves the pride from alms. A soft respect the orphan's steps attends, And the sharp thorn at least the rose defends ; So flow'd o'ershadowed, but not darksome, by, Her life's lone stream — the banks admit the sky.
Halaman 35 - 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...
Halaman 38 - 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 27 - 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 35 - 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 175 - 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...
Halaman 4 - 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 thy...
Halaman 36 - 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 would fire you, but his manners freeze. Like or dislike, he does not care a jot; He wants your vote, but your affection not; Yet human hearts need sun, as well as oats, — So cold a climate plays the deuce with votes.
Halaman 36 - 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.
Halaman 51 - I enthralled but by the sterile rule, The formal pupil of a frigid school, If to old laws my Spartan tastes adhere, If the old vigorous music charms my ear, Where sense with sound, and ease with weight combine In the pure silver of Pope's ringing line ; Or where the pulse of man beats loud and strong In the frank flow of Dryden's lusty song ? Let school -miss Alfred vent her chaste delight On * darling little rooms so warm and bright/ * Chaunt, ' I'm aweary ' in infectious strain And catch her 'blue...
