Σελίδα 38 - WHOEVER has made a voyage up the Hudson must remember the Kaatskill mountains. They are a dismembered branch of the great Appalachian family, and are seen away to the west of the river, swelling up to a noble height, and lording it over the surrounding country. Every change of season, every change of weather, indeed, every hour of the day, produces some change in the magical hues and shapes of these mountains, and they are regarded by all the good wives, far and near, as perfect barometers. When...
Σελίδα 38 - When the weather is fair and settled, they are clothed in blue and purple, and print their bold outlines on the clear evening sky; but, sometimes, when the rest of the landscape is cloudless, they will gather a hood of gray vapors about their summits, which, in the last rays of the setting sun, will glow and light up like a crown of glory.
Σελίδα 102 - Three weeks we westward bore, And when the storm was o'er, Cloud-like we saw the shore Stretching to lee-ward ; There for my lady's bower Built I the lofty tower, Which, to this very hour, Stands looking sea-ward.
Σελίδα 101 - If the view from the top be painful and intolerable, that from below is delightful in an equal extreme. It is impossible for the emotions arising from the sublime to be felt beyond what they are here ; so beautiful an arch, so elevated, so light, and springing as it were up to heaven ! the rapture of the spectator is really indescribable...
Σελίδα 102 - It was not until I came on Table Rock and looked - great heaven, on what a fall of bright green water! - that it came upon me in its full might and majesty. Then, when I felt how near to my Creator I was standing - the first effect, and the enduring one - instant and lasting - of the tremendous spectacle was peace - peace of mind - tranquillity - calm recollection of the dead - great thoughts of eternal rest and happiness: nothing of gloom or terror.
Σελίδα 104 - I think in every quiet season' now, still do those waters roll and leap, and roar and tumble, all day long; still are the rainbows spanning them, a hundred feet below. Still, when the sun is on them, do they shine and glow like molten gold. Still, when the day is gloomy, do they fall like snow...
Σελίδα 101 - Though the sides of this bridge are provided in some parts with a parapet of fixed rocks, yet few men have resolution to walk to them, and look over into the abyss. You involuntarily fall on your hands and feet, creep to the parapet, and peep over it.
Σελίδα 102 - Oh, how the strife and trouble of daily life receded from my view, and lessened in the distance, during the ten memorable days we passed on that Enchanted Ground! What voices spoke from out the thundering water; what faces, faded from the earth, looked out upon me from its gleaming depths; what Heavenly promise glistened in those angels...
Σελίδα 104 - ... I think in every quiet season now, still do " those waters roll and leap, and roar and tumble " all day long ; still are the rainbows spanning " them a hundred feet below. Still, when the " sun is on them do they shine and glow like " molten gold. Still, when the day is gloomy do " they fall like snow, or seem to crumble away " like the front of a great chalk cliff, or roll down " the rock like dense white smoke.
Σελίδα 167 - Nature hath made thee lovelier than the power Even of Campbell's pen hath pictured : he Had woven, had he gazed one sunny hour Upon thy smiling vale, its scenery With more of truth, and made each rock and tree Known like old friends, and greeted from afar : And there are tales of sad reality, In the dark legends of thy border war, With woes of deeper tint than his own Gertrude's are.
