80. oldal - COME, take up your hats, and away let us haste To the Butterfly's ball and the Grasshopper's feast ; The trumpeter Gadfly has summoned the crew, And the revels are now only waiting for you.
86. oldal - As one who, destined from his friends to part, Regrets his loss, but hopes again erewhile To share their converse and enjoy their smile, And tempers as he may affliction's dart...
77. oldal - Thy shelter'd valleys proudly spread, And, SCOTIA, pour thy thousand rills, And wave thy heaths with blossoms red ; But, ah ! what poet now shall tread Thy airy heights, thy woodland reign, Since he the sweetest bard is dead That ever...
5. oldal - Lift the faint head, and bend the imploring eye ; Till Death, in kindness, from the tortured breast Calls the free spirit to the realms of rest. Shame to Mankind ! But shame to BRITONS most, Who all the sweets of Liberty can boast ; Yet, deaf to every human claim, deny That bliss to others, which themselves enjoy: Life's bitter draught with harsher bitter fill ; Blast every joy, and add to every ill ; The trembling limbs with galling iron bind, Nor loose the heavier bondage of the mind.

70. oldal - As thus in calm domestic leisure blest I wake to British notes the Ausonian strings, Be thine the strain ; for what the poet sings Has the chaste tenor of thy life exprest. And whilst delighted, to thy willing breast, With rosy lip thy smiling infant clings, Pleased...
86. oldal - Regrets his loss, but hopes again erewhile To share their converse and enjoy their smile. And tempers as he may affliction's dart; Thus, loved associates, chiefs of elder art, Teachers of wisdom, who could once beguile My tedious hours, and lighten every toil, I now resign you; nor with fainting heart; For pass a few short years, or days, or hours, And happier seasons may their dawn unfold, And all your sacred fellowship restore: When, freed from earth, unlimited its powers, M1nd shall with mind...
