Página 14 - If music be the food of love, play on, Give me excess of it; that, surfeiting, The appetite may sicken and so die.— That strain again;— it had a dying fall; O, it came o'er my ear like the sweet south, That breathes upon a bank of violets, Stealing and giving odour.— Enough; no more; 'Tis not so sweet now as it was before.
Página 36 - Thus then to man the voice of nature spake — " Go, from the creatures thy instructions take : Learn from the birds what food the thickets yield; Learn from the beasts the physic of the field; Thy arts of building from the bee receive ; Learn of the mole to plough, the worm to weave; Learn of the little nautilus to sail, Spread the thin oar, and catch the driving gale.

Página 35 - THE God of Nature and of Grace In all his works appears ; His goodness through the earth we trace, His grandeur in the spheres.
Página 26 - I'll trust to nature to teach me. I will not despair, nor be idle, nor frown, Locked in so gloomy a dwelling ; My leaves shall run up, and my roots shall run down, While the bud in my bosom is swelling. Soon as the frost will get out of my bed, From this cold dungeon to free me, I will peer up with my little bright head ; All will be joyful to see me.
Página 21 - I find a home of rest ? Eagle ! cleaving the vaulted sky, Teach my nature to soar as high ; Sky-lark ! winging thy way to heaven, Be thy track to my footsteps given ! THE DIVERTING HISTORT OF JOHN GILPIN.
