第 42 頁 - Atlantic rock undreading climb, And of its eggs despoil the solan's nest. Thus blest in primal innocence, they live, Sufficed and happy with that frugal fare Which tasteful toil and hourly 'danger give. Hard is their shallow soil, and bleak and bare ; Nor ever vernal bee was heard to murmur there ! XI.
第 74 頁 - Yea, the stork in the heaven knoweth her appointed times ; and the turtle, and the crane, and the swallow, observe the time of their coming; but my people know not the judgment of the LORD.
第 358 頁 - Thou stout Italian, come thou here; Thy name is Anthony, most stout; Draw out thy sword that is most clear, And do thou fight without any doubt; Thy leg thou shake, thy neck, thou lout...
第 47 頁 - Ye who turn judgment to wormwood, and leave off righteousness in the earth, seek him that maketh the seven stars and Orion, and turneth the shadow of death into the morning, and maketh the day dark with night: that calleth for the waters of the sea, and poureth them out upon the face of the earth: The Lord is his name: that strengtheneth the spoiled against the strong, so that the spoiled shall come against the fortress.

第 42 頁 - O ! o'er all, forget not Kilda's race, On whose bleak rocks, which brave the wasting tides, Fair nature's daughter, virtue, yet abides. Go, just, as they, their blameless manners trace ! Then to my ear transmit some gentle song, Of those whose lives are yet sincere and plain, Their bounded walks the rugged cliffs along, And all their prospect but the wintry main. With sparing...
第 343 頁 - Atlantic, when provoked by wintry gales, batters against it with all the force of real artillery — the waves having, in their repeated assaults, forced themselves an entrance. This breach, named the Grind of the Navir, is widened every winter by the overwhelming surge that, finding a passage through it, separates large stones from its sides, and forces them to a distance of no less than 180 feet. In two or three spots, the fragments which have been detached are brought together in immense heaps,...
第 439 頁 - Listening, a gentle shock of mild surprise Has carried far into his heart the voice Of mountain torrents; or the visible scene Would enter unawares into his mind With all its solemn imagery, its rocks, Its woods, and that uncertain heaven received Into the bosom of the steady lake.
