第 17 頁 - A blending of all beauties ; streams and dells, Fruit, foliage, crag, wood, corn-field, mountain, vine, And chiefless castles, breathing stern farewells From grey but leafy walls, where Ruin greenly dwells.
第 236 頁 - Mark's on an evening ; see its fine square in all its marble beauty — the domes and minarets of its old church ; the barbaric gloom of the Doge's palace ; its proud towering Campanile ; look upon the famous Corinthian horses, and think of their emigration, on the winged lion of the Piraeus ; walk in the illumination of its long line of...
