Página 251 - Catch, then, oh ! catch the transient hour, Improve each moment as it flies ; Life's a short summer — man a flower : He dies — alas ! how soon he dies...
Página 223 - And oft he traced the uplands, to survey, When o'er the sky advanced the kindling dawn, The crimson cloud, blue main, and mountain gray, And lake, dim-gleaming on the smoky lawn : Far to the west the long, long vale withdrawn...
