Nor public flame, nor private, dares to shine, Nor human spark is left, nor glimpse divine. Lo ! thy dread empire, Chaos ! is restor'd, Light dies before thy uncreating word. Thy hand, great Anarch! lets the curtain fall; And universal darkness buries all.

Página 231 - The sire then shook the honours of his head, And from his brows damps of oblivion shed Full on the filial dulness...
Página 241 - HIGH on a gorgeous seat, that far out-shone Henley's gilt tub, or Fleckno's Irish throne...
Página 364 - Doeg, though without knowing how or why, Made still a blundering kind of melody ; Spurred boldly on, and dashed through thick and thin. Through sense and nonsense, never out nor in...
Página 231 - My son, advance Still in new impudence, new ignorance. Success let others teach, learn thou from me Pangs without birth, and fruitless industry. Let virtuosos in five years be writ; Yet not one thought accuse thy toil of wit.
Página 231 - Nay let thy men of wit too be the same, All full of thee, and differing but in name; But let no alien Sedley interpose To lard with wit thy hungry Epsom prose.
