Page 40 - Around the fav'rites of the sky. Thy gentle flows of guiltless joys On fools and villains ne'er descend ; In vain for thee the tyrant sighs, And hugs a flatterer for a friend. Directress of the brave and just, O guide us through life's darksome way ! And let the tortures of mistrust On selfish bosoms only prey.

Page 40 - Plodding alone through sleet and drifting snows. They should have drawn thee by the high-heapt hearth, Old Winter ! seated in thy great arm'd chair, Watching the children at their Christmas mirth ; Or circled by them as thy lips declare Some merry jest or tale of murder dire, Or troubled...
Page 218 - They rifled his portmanteau undisturbed, and settled the plan of putting him to death. — The gentleman hearing all this, and not knowing by what means he was to be rescued, it may naturally be supposed, was under great perturbation of mind during such an awful interval of suspense; -when, at the moment the villains...
Page 175 - Grave, and Juliet's Bier ! You to their Worth must Testimony give; 'Tis in your Hearts alone their Fame can live. Still as the Scenes of Life will shift away, The strong Impressions of their Art decay. Your Children cannot feel what you have known; They'll boast of Quins and Gibbers of their own: The greatest Glory of our happy few, Is to be felt, and be approv'd by you.
