Side 28 - The imperial ensign, which, full high advanced. Shone like a meteor streaming to the wind...
Side 32 - To disappointment, and fallacious hope : Rich in content, in Nature's bounty rich, In herbs and fruits; whatever greens the Spring, When heaven descends in showers; or bends the bough, When Summer reddens, and when Autumn beams; Or in the wintry glebe whatever lies Conceal'd, and fattens with the richest sap...
Side 32 - In herbs and fruits; whatever greens the Spring, When heaven descends in showers; or bends the bough, When Summer reddens, and when Autumn beams; Or in the wintry glebe whatever lies Concealed, and fattens with the richest sap: These are not wanting; nor the milky drove, Luxuriant, spread o'er all the lowing vale ; Nor bleating mountains...
Side 16 - Whatever fruits in different climes are found, That proudly rise, or humbly court the ground; Whatever blooms in torrid tracts appear, Whose bright succession decks the varied year; Whatever sweets salute the northern sky With vernal lives that blossom but to die: These here disporting own the kindred soil, Nor ask luxuriance from the planter's toil; 120 While sea-born gales their gelid wings expand, To winnow fragrance round the smiling land.
Side 32 - Oh, knew he but his happiness, of men The happiest he ! who far from public rage, Deep in the vale, with a choice few retired, Drinks the pure pleasures of the rural life.
Side 20 - In vengeance roused, the soldier fills his hand With sword and fire, and ravages the land, A thousand villages to ashes turns, In crackling flames a thousand harvests burns.
Side 15 - Age in a virtuous person of either sex, carries in it an authority which makes it preferable to all the pleasures of youth. If to be saluted, attended, and consulted with deference, are instances of pleasure, they are such as never fail a virtuous old age.
Side 16 - O'ercast with gloomy cares, and discontent ; Then tell me, Syphax, I conjure thee, tell me, What' are the thoughts that knit thy brow in frowns, And turn thine eye thus coldly on thy prince ? SYPHAX.
Side 28 - Seraphic arms and trophies ; all the while Sonorous metal blowing martial sounds ; At which the universal host up-sent A shout, that tore hell's concave, and beyond Frighted the reign of Chaos and old Night. All in a moment through the gloom were seen Ten thousand banners rise into the air With orient colours waving : with them rose A forest huge of spears ; and thronging helms Appear'd, and serried shields in thick array Of depth immeasurable...
Side 10 - Invite the tuneful birds to sing ; And while they warble from each spray, Love melts the universal lay. Let us, Amanda, timely wise, Like them improve the hour that flies, And in soft raptures waste the day Among the birks of Invermay.
