Σελίδα 58 - Or like the snow-falls in the river, A moment white—then melts for ever; Or like the borealis race, That flit ere you can point their place; Or like the rainbow's lovely form, Evanishing amid the storm : Nae man can tether time or tide; The hour approaches Tam maun ride.
Σελίδα 51 - to a word of three syllables: " On the fifth day of the moon, which, according to the custom of my forefathers, I always keep holy, after having washed myself, and offered up my morning devotions, I ascended the high hill of Bagdat, in order to pass the rest of the day in meditation and prayer."

Σελίδα 58 - bis queerest stories; The landlord's laugh was ready chorus: The storm without might rair and rustle, Tarn did na mind the storm a whistle.

Σελίδα 246 - thou Good Supreme! O! teach me what is good! teach me thyself! Save me from folly, vanity, and vice, From every low pursuit! and feed my soul With knowledge, conscious peace, and virtue pure, Sacred, substantial, never-fading bliss! [To

There gathering triple force, rapid and deep, It boils, and wheels, and foams, and thunders thro'. Nature! great parent! whose
Σελίδα 91 - 1726. * See WINTER comes to rule the varied year, Sullen and sad ; with all his rising train Vapours, and clouds, and storms: Be these my theme, These, that exalt the soul to solemn thought, And heavenly musing. Welcome, kindred glooms
