第123页 - Looking tranquillity ! It strikes an awe And terror on my aching sight ; the tombs And monumental caves of death look cold, And shoot a chillness to my trembling heart. Give me thy hand, and let me hear thy voice; Nay, quickly speak to me, and let me hear Thy voice — my own affrights me with its echoes.
第123页 - Whistling thro' hollows of this vaulted isle : We'll listen— LEONORA. Hark! ALMERIA. No, all is hush'd and still as death. — 'Tis dreadful .' How reverend is the face of this tall pile; Whose ancient pillars rear their marble heads, To bear aloft its arch'd and...
第182页 - ... as from a furnace streams Glows the ether, crack the beams ; Mothers wandering, children moaning, Cattle under ruins groaning, Windows clattering, pillars crushing, All for safety wildly rushing, This way, that way, twisting, turning, Midnight like the noon-day burning, Hand to hand, a lengthen'd chain, How they strain ! Fly the buckets ; flood and fountain Burst in liquid arches mounting ; The howling tempest on its course Gives to the flames resistless force : The fire-flood through each granary...
第182页 - ... fountain Burst in liquid arches mounting: The howling tempest on its course Gives to the flames resistless force : The fire-flood through each granary streams, And blazes o'er the rafter'd beams; And, as if the self-same hour Would earth and all its growth devour, To heav'n it rears its tow'ring flight, Giant high! Hopelessly Beneath its godlike strength man bows the head: And, as his treasures sink and sunder, Beholds the ruins round him spread, In idle wonder — Consum'd by flame. One waste...
第123页 - ... works — these turrets and battlements — the gloomy cloisters, and secret porch which covers the entrance into the sunken hollow cells, where many of those adventurers, who returned full of glory from the Holy Wars...
第182页 - One lingering look—'tis o'er—tis past— He grasps his staff—the world has room— The raging flame not all has reft One heartfelt solace yet is left; He numbers those belov'd the most,— Of those, so lov'd, not one is lost. All prosp'rous seems beneath the earth, Full and kindly fill'd the mould: But will the day that views its birth, What crowns our toil and art behold ? If the fusion haply fail! — If at last the mould prove frail!— Ah! while Hope's bright sunbeams glow, Fate has already...
第116页 - ... gallery will permit. This church is entirely constructed of good firm stone but is much inferior in its masonry to that of St. John's. On different parts of the exterior are displayed sculptured heads and grotesque figures of men and of various animals. Under a canopy on the top of the east end, is a statue of the Virgin Mary with the infant Jesus in her arms placed on a pedestal having shields sculptured on the plinth, and inscribed with the initials of William Smyth. The Tower which is quadrangular...
第194页 - I told him this story, on which he wrote to me, saying, that he was tormented in the same manner, and requested me to point out the passage, which had been so successful in my case. This I did, and he afterwards informed me, that he had employed it with the same happy result.
第192页 - Among the monuments, is one of the celebrated philosopher, Immanuel Kant, whose strange and obscure system of pure reason, as he called it, made so much noise in Germany half-a-century ago, and is now nearly forgotten. The extraordinary success of Kant's work, the enthusiasm with which it was loaded...
第194页 - This they were all very ready to do, assuring me that such and sucli was the meaning. I replied, that this might be so, but there was no trace of it in the passage itself; and that if such had been Kant's meaning, he might as well have explained it, in the same intelligible German that they did. By this mean, I gradually obtained my object.
