Sida 57 - All things both great and small; 615 For the dear God who. loveth us, He made and loveth all.'

Sida 41 - Has never passed away. An orphan's curse would drag to hell A spirit from on high ; But oh ! more horrible than that Is a curse in a dead man's eye ! 260 Seven days, seven nights, I saw that curse, And yet I could not die. , , • , * In his
Sida 37 - wind or tide ? The western wave was all a-flame. The day was well nigh done ! Almost upon the western wave Rested the broad bright Sun ; When that strange shape drove suddenly 175 Betwixt us and the Sun. And straight the Sun was flecked with
Sida 31 - Was tyrannous and strong: po ie. He struck with his o'ertaking wings, And chased us south along. With sloping masts and dipping prow, 45 As who pursued with yell and blow Still treads the shadow of his foe, And forward bends his head, The ship drove fast, loud roared the blast, And southward aye we fled.
Sida 35 - And the Albatross begins to be avenged. A Spirit had followed them; one of the invisible inhabitants of this planet, neither departed souls nor angels; concerning whom the learned Jew, Josephus, and the platonic Constantinopolitan, Michael Psellus, may be consulted.
