Página 19 - There are a sort of men whose visages Do cream and mantle like a standing pond, And do a wilful stillness entertain, With purpose to be dress'd in an opinion Of wisdom, gravity, profound conceit, As who should say, 'I am Sir Oracle, And when I ope my lips let no dog bark!
Página 155 - The times have been That, when the brains were out, the man would die, And there an end ; but now they rise again, With twenty mortal murders on their crowns, And push us from our stools.
Página 199 - twixt heart and heart, When the dear friends had nothing to impart : — All! all! are over; — now th' accomplish' d maid Longs for the world, of nothing there afraid : Dreams of delight invade her gentle breast, And fancied lovers rob the heart of rest ; At the paternal door a carriage stands, Love knits their hearts and Hymen joins their hands. Ah ! — world unknown ! how charming is thy view, Thy pleasures many, and each pleasure new : Ah ! — world experienced ! what of thee is told ? How...

Página 186 - Nay, there's a charm beyond what nature shows, The bloom is softer and more sweetly glows; — Pierced by no crime, and urged by no desire For more than true and honest hearts require, They feel the calm delight, and thus proceed Through the green lane, — then linger in the mead...
Página 6 - Not warn'd by misery, not enrich' d by gain; Whom justice pitying, chides from place to place, A wandering, careless, wretched, merry race, Who cheerful looks assume, and play the parts Of happy Rovers with repining hearts ; Then cast off care, and in the mimic pain Of tragic...
