To rest, the cushion and soft dean invite, Who never mentions hell to ears polite.
57. oldal - His gardens next your admiration call, On every side you look, behold the wall ! No pleasing intricacies intervene, No artful wildness to perplex the scene ; Grove nods at grove, each valley has a brother, And half the platform just reflects the other.
56. oldal - At Timon's villa let us pass a day, Where all cry out, " What sums are thrown away !" So proud, so grand ; of that stupendous air, Soft and agreeable come never there. Greatness, with Timon, dwells in such a draught As brings all Brobdignag before your thought.

This was my favourite spot; but, as I wish to erect a tablet to her memory, the body had better be deposited in the church.
145. oldal - Jeanie to follow him. They paused for a moment on the brow of a hill, to gaze on the unrivalled landscape which it presented. A huge sea of verdure, with crossing and intersecting promontories of massive and tufted groves, was tenanted by numberless flocks and herds, which seemed to wander unrestrained and unbounded through the rich pastures.
144. oldal - The carriage rolled rapidly onwards through fertile meadows, ornamented with splendid old oaks, and catching occasionally a glance of the majestic mirror of a broad and placid river. After passing through a pleasant village, the equipage stopped on a commanding eminence, 3 where the beauty of English landscape was displayed in its utmost luxuriance.

172. oldal - Swan,' snug inn, good fare affords As table e'er was put on, And worthier quite of loftier boards Its poultry, fish, and mutton ; And while sound wine mine host supplies, With beer of Meux or Tritton, Mine hostess, with her bright blue eyes, Invites to stay at DITTON.
