第 47 頁 - Biron they call him ; but a merrier man, Within the limit of becoming mirth, I never spent an hour's talk withal : His eye begets occasion for his wit ; For every object that the one doth catch The other turns to a mirth-moving jest...
第 30 頁 - Father of light and life, thou Good Supreme ! O teach me what is good ; teach me Thyself! Save me from folly, vanity, and vice, From every low pursuit; and feed my soul With knowledge, conscious peace, and virtue pure; Sacred, substantial, never-fading bliss...
第 32 頁 - Ever charming, ever new, When will the landscape tire the view; The fountain's fall, the river's flow, The woody valleys, warm and low ; The windy summit, wild and high, Roughly rushing on the sky! The pleasant seat, the ruined tower, The naked rock, the shady bower ; The town and village, dome and farm, Each give each a double charm, As pearls upon an ^Ethiop's arm.
第 35 頁 - Nymph of the Grot, these sacred Springs I keep, And to the Murmur of these Waters sleep ; Ah spare my slumbers, gently tread the cave ! And drink in silence, or in silence lave I You'll think I have been very Poetical in this Description, but it is pretty near the Truth.

第 78 頁 - And where, though all things differ, all agree. Here waving groves a chequer'd scene display, And part admit, and part exclude, the day ; As some coy nymph her lover's warm address Nor quite indulges, nor can quite repress.
第 35 頁 - ... in the natural taste, agreeing not ill with the little dripping murmur, and the aquatic idea of the whole place.
第 34 頁 - I have put the last hand to my works of this kind, in happily finishing the subterraneous way and grotto : I there found a spring of the clearest water, which falls in a perpetual rill that echoes through the cavern day and night.
第 36 頁 - A grotto is not often the wish or pleasure of an Englishman, who has more frequent need to solicit than exclude the sun ; but Pope's excavation was requisite as an entrance to his garden, and, as some men try to be proud of their defects, he extracted an ornament from an inconvenience, and vanity produced a grotto where necessity enforced a passage.
