Σελίδα 456 - Thence up he flew, and on the tree of life, The middle tree and highest there that grew, Sat like a cormorant...
Σελίδα 374 - ... a bright light blue; primaries dusky brown; secondaries black; speculum or beauty spot rich green ; tertials, edged with black or light blue, and streaked down their middle with white; the tail, which is pointed, extends two inches beyond the wings; legs and feet yellow, the latter very small; the two crescents of white before the eyes meet OH the throat.
Σελίδα 53 - O'er the still radiance of the lake below : Tranquil its spirit seemed and floated slow ; Even in its very motion there was rest ; While every breath of eve that chanced to blow Wafted the traveller to the beauteous West — Emblem...
Σελίδα 354 - It is highly probable that they extend their migrations under the very pole itself, amid the silent desolation of unknown countries, shut out ever since creation from the prying eye of man by everlasting and insuperable barriers of ice.
