Seite 147 - Do you know,' said Mr. Marshall to me, 'I positively debated within myself two or three times whether I should take the trouble to bend my back to pick up one of the pieces, and had decided on not doing so, when further on, another glittering morsel caught my eye — the largest of the pieces now before you. I condescended to pick it up, and to my astonishment found it was a thin scale of what appears to be pure gold.
Seite 59 - O MAIDEN ! heir of kings ! A king has left his place ! The majesty of Death has swept All other from his face ! And thou upon thy mother's breast No longer lean adown, But take the glory for the rest, And rule the land that loves thee best...
Seite 532 - Tis like the birthday of the world, When earth was born in bloom ; The light is made of many dyes, The air is all perfume ; There's crimson buds, and white and blue — The very rainbow show'rs Have turned to blossoms where they fell, And sown the earth with flowers.
