Seite 199 - Tis she! — but why that bleeding bosom gored? Why dimly gleams the visionary sword? Oh, ever beauteous, ever friendly ! tell, Is it, in heaven, a crime to love too well? To bear too tender or too firm a heart, To act a lover's or a Roman's part? Is there no bright reversion in the sky, For those who greatly think, or bravely die?
Seite 186 - Notion of Poetical Justice, in my humble Opinion it has lost half its Beauty. At the same time I must allow, that there are very noble Tragedies which have been framed upon the other Plan, and have ended happily; as indeed...
Seite 190 - Heaven first taught letters for some wretch's aid, Some banish'd lover, or some captive maid; They live, they speak, they breathe what love inspires, Warm from the soul, and faithful to its fires ; The virgin's wish without her fears impart, Excuse the blush, and pour out all the heart, Speed the soft intercourse from soul to soul, And waft a sigh from Indus to the Pole.
Seite 81 - Their feather-cinctured chiefs and dusky loves. Her track, where'er the Goddess roves, Glory pursue, and generous Shame, Th' unconquerable Mind, and Freedom's holy flame.
Seite 17 - Careless tripping o'er the green The sprightly Deshoulieres appears With winning air and brow serene, Unclouded by the frown of years ; Around the Nymph in graceful state A thousand smiling Cupids wait, And each performs his...
Seite 18 - Dispersed the melancholy gloom Which at her dear Alexis' death O'erhung the sickening vales of Frome, To the soft Cyprian lute recites The fears, the hopes, the fond delights, The tender blandishments of love, Their mutual happiness completing, Where Innocence and Pleasure meeting Have fix'd them in the realms above. Beside them Cytherea stands In Virtue's snowy garb array'd, And reunites their social hands...
Seite 17 - Methinks I see the jocund band Of Loves and Graces hand in hand Their artless symphony inspire; The Muses catch the dulcet sound, They waft the sportive echoes round. And wake the sympathetic lyre.
Seite 16 - ... ray, Sunk in the rust of Greece and Rome Does Genius point the doubtful way, While in abstracted thought the Sage Revolves the stern Socratic page ; Or by the tedious rules of art In melancholy search pursues, Yet finds the gay, the bashful Mu'sc Unseen anil unattain'd depart. VOL. vi. R I. 242 in. Where Poesy erects her seat, The myrtle's fragrant branches twine. Beneath the Pleasures' nimble feet Upstarts the new-born columbine.
Seite 3 - Accipiant; caelique vias et sidera monstrent, Defectus solis varios, lunaeque labores : Unde tremor terris : qua vi maria alta tumescant...
Seite 67 - Fortune swells the Tyrant's motley pride ! Around his brows yon servile Prelates twine The stale and blasted wreath of Right Divine ; While Harlots, like the Coan Venus fair, Move their light feet to each lascivious air. Hence with your orgies ! Righteous Heaven ordains A purer worship, less audacious strains. When falls by William's sword (as soon it must) This edifice of bigotry and lust, The Muse shall start from her inglorious trance, And give to satire's grasp her vengeful lance ; At Truth's...
