Seite 181 - If chance the radiant sun with farewell sweet Extend his evening beam, the fields revive, The birds their notes renew, and bleating herds Attest their joy, that hill and valley rings.
Seite 56 - Oer the long roof their wild embroidery drew; Where SUPERSTITION, with capricious hand In many a maze the wreathed window plann'd, With hues romantic ting'd the gorgeous pane, To fill with holy light the wondrous fane ; To aid the builder's model, richly rude, By no Vitruvian symmetry subdued...

Seite 13 - He blends the speaker's with the patriot's fire ; Bold to conceive, nor timorous to conceal, What Britons dare to think, he dares to tell.

Seite 20 - Bound on his maiden thigh the martial blade : Bade him the steel for British freedom draw. And Oxford taught the deeds that Cressy saw.
Seite 16 - Ev'n now, confess'd to my adoring eyes, In awful ranks thy gifted sons arise, Tuning to knightly tale his British reeds, Thy genuine bards immortal Chaucer leads : His hoary head o'erlooks the gazing quire, And beams on all around celestial fire.
