Σελίδα 232 - Farewell to the mountains high cover'd with snow; Farewell to the straths and green valleys below ; Farewell to the forests and wild-hanging woods; Farewell to the torrents and loud-pouring floods.
Σελίδα 171 - THIS is the forest primeval. The murmuring pines and the hemlocks, Bearded with moss, and in garments green, indistinct in the twilight, Stand like Druids of eld, with voices sad and prophetic, Stand like harpers hoar, with beards that rest on their bosoms.
Σελίδα 130 - Mont Blanc yet gleams on high : — the power is there, The still and solemn power of many sights And many sounds, and much of life and death. In the calm darkness of the moonless nights, In the lone glare of day, the snows descend Upon that Mountain ; none beholds them there, Nor when the flakes burn in the sinking sun, Or the star-beams dart through them...
Σελίδα 1 - And least respected in the human Mind, Its most apparent home. The food of hope Is meditated action ; robbed of this Her sole support, she languishes and dies. We perish also ; for we live by hope And by desire ; we see by the glad light And breathe the sweet air of futurity ; And so we live, or else we have no life.
Σελίδα 171 - Ye who believe in affection that hopes, and endures, and is patient, Ye who believe in the beauty and strength of woman's devotion, List to the mournful tradition, still sung by the pines of the forest; List to a Tale of Love in Acadie, home of the happy.
Σελίδα 214 - To the broad column which rolls on, and shows More like the fountain of an infant sea Torn from the womb of mountains by the throes Of a new world...
Σελίδα 197 - The trees of the Lord are full of sap ; the cedars of Lebanon, which he hath planted; where the birds make their nests: as for the stork, the fir trees are her house. The high hills are a refuge for the wild goats; and the rocks for the conies.
Σελίδα 130 - The secret Strength of things Which governs thought, and to the infinite dome Of Heaven is as a law, inhabits thee ! And what were thou, and earth, and stars, and sea, If to the human mind's imaginings Silence and solitude were vacancy ? July 23, 1816.
Σελίδα 49 - Hector had observed a peculiarity which distinguishes it from the others we had examined, viz. the absence of any abrupt step at the commencement of the descent to the west. This led him to report very favourably upon the facilities offered by this pass for the construction of a waggon road, and even that the project of a railroad by this route across the Rocky Mountains might be reasonably entertained.
