My rills are only puddle-drains From shambles — or reflect the stains Of calimanco-dyes.

Seite 161 - I REALLY take it very kind, This visit, Mrs. Skinner ! I have not seen you such an age — (The wretch has come to dinner !) " Your daughters, too, what loves of girls — What heads for painters...
Seite 399 - The careless dog's-ears apt to deck My book and collar both ! How can this formal man be styled Merely an Alexandrine child, A boy of larger growth ? Oh, for that small, small beer anew!
Seite 161 - Twas very kind to bring them both — (What boots for my new Brussels !) "What! little Clara left at home? Well now I call that shabby : I should have loved to kiss her so — (A flabby, dabby, babby !) "And Mr.
