Side 119 - The powers of man; we feel within ourselves His energy divine; he tells the heart, He meant, he made us to behold and love What he beholds and loves, the general orb Of life and being; to be great like him, Beneficent and active.
Side 115 - Hence when lightning fires The arch of Heaven, and thunders rock the ground. When furious whirlwinds rend the howling air. And Ocean, groaning from his lowest bed, Heaves his tempestuous billows to the sky ; Amid the mighty uproar, while below The nations tremble, SHAKSPEARE looks abroad From some high cliff, superior, and enjoys The elemental war.
Side 38 - Attentive turn ; from dim oblivion call Her fleet, ideal band ; and bid them, go ! Break through Time's barrier, and o'ertake the hour That saw the heavens created : then declare If aught were found in those external scenes To move thy wonder now.
Side 20 - Through mountains, plains, through empires black with shade, And continents of sand, will turn his gaze To mark the windings of a scanty rill That murmurs at his feet?
Side 15 - The active powers of man ! with wise intent The hand of Nature on peculiar minds Imprints a different bias, and to each Decrees its province in the common toil.

Side 16 - Decrees its province in the common toil. To some she taught the fabric of the sphere, The changeful moon, the circuit of the stars, The golden zones of heaven ; to...
Side 15 - The forms eternal of created things ; The radiant Sun, the Moon's nocturnal lamp, The mountains, woods, and streams, the rolling globe, And Wisdom's mien celestial.
Side 49 - Would pass unheeded. Fair the face of Spring, When rural songs and odours wake the morn, To every eye; but how much more to his Round whom the bed of sickness long diffused Its melancholy gloom!
