Page 179 - Though sluggards deem it but a foolish chase, And marvel men should quit their easy chair, The toilsome way, and long, long league to trace, Oh ! there is sweetness in the mountain air, And life, that bloated Ease can never hope to share.
Page 120 - It was the lark, the herald of the morn, No nightingale ; look, love, what envious streaks Do lace the severing clouds in yonder east. Night's candles are burnt out, and jocund day Stands tiptoe on the misty mountain tops; I must be gone and live, or stay and die.
Page 109 - She walks the waters like a thing of life, And seems to dare the elements to strife.
Page 265 - Oh, who can tell, save he whose heart hath tried, And danced in triumph o'er the waters wide, The exulting sense, the pulse's maddening play, That thrills the wanderer of that trackless way?
Page 126 - My hounds are bred out of the Spartan kind, So flew'd, so sanded ; and their heads are hung With ears that sweep away the morning dew ; Crook-knee'd, and dew-lapp'd like Thessalian bulls ; Slow in pursuit, but match'd in mouth like bells, Each under each.

Page 296 - Than reign in this horrible place. 1 am out of humanity's reach, I must finish my journey alone, Never hear the sweet music of speech, I start at the sound of my own. The beasts that roam over the plain My form with indifference see, They are so unacquainted with man, Their tameness is shocking to me.
Page 427 - A catalogue of his vices would comprehend many of the worst qualities incident to human nature : violence, cruelty, profusion, rapacity, injustice, obstinacy, arrogance, bigotry, presumption, caprice : but neither was he subject to all these vices in the most extreme degree, nor was he at intervals altogether destitute of virtue : he was sincere, open, gallant, liberal, and capable at least of a temporary friendship and attachment.
Page 386 - Llewelyn homeward hied, When, near the portal seat, His truant Gelert he espied, Bounding his lord to greet. But, when he gained his castle door, Aghast the chieftain stood; The hound all o'er was smeared with gore, His lips, his fangs, ran blood.
Page 88 - Should there be several capercailzies in the same tree, however, it is always necessary to shoot those in the lower branches in the first instance; for unless one of these birds fall on its companions, it is said the rest will never move, and, in consequence, the whole of them may be readily killed.
