Strana 234 - O mistress mine, where are you roaming ? O, stay and hear; your true love's coming, That can sing both high and low: Trip no further, pretty sweeting; Journeys end in lovers meeting, Every wise man's son doth know.
Strana 209 - And it seem'd to a fanciful view To weep for the buds it had left, with regret, On the flourishing bush where it grew. I hastily seized it, unfit as it was For a nosegay, so dripping and drown'd, And swinging it rudely, too rudely, alas! I snapp'd it, it fell to the ground. And such...
Strana 128 - True ease in writing comes from art, not chance, As those move easiest who have learned to dance. Tis not enough no harshness gives offence, The sound must seem an echo to the sense.
Strana 234 - tis not hereafter; Present mirth hath present laughter; What's to come is still unsure: In delay there lies no plenty; Then come kiss me, sweet and twenty, Youth's a stuff will not endure.
Strana 233 - TRIP upon trenchers, and dance upon dishes, My mother sent me for some barm, some barm ; She bid me tread lightly, and come again quickly, For fear the young men should do me some harm. Yet didn't you see, yet didn't you see, What naughty tricks they put upon me : They broke my pitcher, And spilt the water, And huff'd my mother, And chid her daughter, And kiss'd my sister instead of me.
Strana 209 - Not a pine in my grove is there seen, But with tendrils of woodbine is bound; Not a beech's more beautiful green. But a sweet-briar entwines it around. Not my fields in the prime of the year, More charms than my cattle unfold; Not a brook that is limpid and clear, But it glitters with fishes of gold.
Strana 233 - Of Man by Nature. From God he's a back-slider, Of ways he loves the wider ; With wickedness a sider, More venom than a spider. In sin he's a confider, A make-bate and divider ; Blind reason is his guider, The devil is his rider.
Strana 240 - Look'd on, and remark'd, that the prudent and sage, Were quite overlook'd in this frivolous age, When Birds, scarce pen-feather'd, were brought to a rout, Forward Chits! from the egg-shell but newly come out; That in their youthful days, they ne'er witness'd such frisking, And how wrong! in the GREENFINCH to flirt with the SISKIN. So thought Lady MACKAW, and her Friend COCKATOO, And the RAVEN foretold that "no good could ensue!
Strana 313 - He acts upon the principle that if a thing is worth doing at all it is worth doing well : — and the thing that he " does" especially well is the public.
