Sida 32 - Now came still evening on, and twilight gray Had in her sober livery all things clad ; Silence accompanied ; for beast and bird, They to their grassy couch, these to their nests Were slunk, all but the wakeful nightingale ; She all night long her amorous descant sung...
Sida 15 - Lift up your eyes on high and behold who hath created these things that bringeth out their host by number; he callth them all by names by the greatness of his might for that he is strong in power; not one faileth.
Sida 31 - But rather to tell how, if Art could tell. How from that sapphire fount the crisped brooks Rolling on orient pearl and sands of gold, With mazy error under pendant shades Ran nectar, visiting each plant, and fed Flowers worthy of Paradise, which not nice Art In beds and curious knots, but Nature boon Pour'd forth profuse on hill, and dale, and plain...

Sida 46 - Die he or justice must; unless for him Some other able, and as willing, pay The rigid satisfaction — death for death.
Sida 29 - For man to tell how human life began Is hard; for who himself beginning knew? Desire with thee still longer to converse Induced me. As new waked from soundest sleep, Soft on the flowery herb I found me laid In balmy sweat, which with his beams the sun Soon dried, and on the reeking moisture fed. Straight toward Heaven my...
