Page 225 - To Lucasta, Going Beyond the Seas IF to be absent were to be Away from thee; Or that when I am gone You or I were alone ; Then, my Lucasta, might I crave Pity from blustering wind, or swallowing wave.
Page 54 - Twas the Herald of the Tomb, And the HERO felt the call — Felt — and raised his arm on high ; Victory well the signal knew, Darted from his awful eye, And the force of FRANCE o'erthrew.
Page 409 - Why, Damon, with the forward day Dost thou thy little spot survey, From tree to tree, with doubtful cheer, Pursue the progress of the year, What winds arise, what rains descend, When thou before that year...
