To dip his brush in dyes of heaven? SCOTT-Marmion. Canto VI. St. 5.
Mild arch of promise! on the evening sky
SOUTHEY-Sonnets. The Evening Rainbow.
Rain, rain, and sun! a rainbow in the sky! TENNYSON-Idylls of the King. The Coming of Arthur. L. 401.

GAY-Fables. The Farmer's Wife and the Raven.

And the Raven's couch is spread with weeds,
And the Raven himself, telling his beads
