66 psl. - Perhaps he passes on his favourite steed, Less heedful of the misery he inflicts Than of the expiring sparkle from a stone ; Yet we, alive or dead, have fellow-men, If ever we have served them, who collect From prisons and from dungeons our remains, And bear them in their bosom to their sons. Man's only relics are his benefits ; These, be there ages, be there worlds, between, Retain him in communion with his kind : Hence is our solace, our security, Our sustenance, till heavenly truth descends, Covering...
xv psl. - Child 1 of a day, thou knowest not The tears that overflow thine urn, The gushing eyes that read thy lot, Nor, if thou knewest, couldst return ! And why the wish ! the pure and blest Watch like thy mother o'er thy sleep. O peaceful night ! O envied rest ! Thou wilt not ever see her weep.
38 psl. - Reflect her image ; but acknowledged them Hers most complete when flowing from her most. All things in want of her, herself of none, Pomp and dominion lay beneath her feet Unfelt and unregarded : now behold The earthly passions war against the heavenly ! Pride against love, ambition and revenge Against devotion and compliancy : Her glorious beams adversity hath blunted ; And coming nearer to our quiet view The original clay of coarse mortality Hardens and flaws around her.
xvi psl. - I strove with none, for none was worth my strife. Nature I loved and, next to Nature, Art; I warmed both hands before the fire of life; It sinks, and I am ready to depart. ON DEATH Death stands above me, whispering low I know not what into my ear; Of his strange language all I know Is, there is not a word of fear.
72 psl. - Of passion : but he sees my heart, he finds What fragrance most refreshes it. How high, 0 Heaven ! must that man be, who loves, and who Would still raise others higher than himself To interest his beloved ! All my soul Is but one drop from his, and into his Falls, as earth's dew falls into earth again.
360 psl. - Have I to give, and one small sacrifice ; I vow it you before this hour is past. My heart may beat against its bars awhile, But shall not leave me yet. Go, Eros, go, I must lie down and rest, feeble and faint. But come back presently. Eros (after some absence). How fares our lord ? Antony. Recovered, sound again, more sound than ever. Eros.- And yet our lord looks more like other men. Antony (smiling). We can not always swagger, always act A character the wise will never learn : When Night goes down,...
53 psl. - Beyond the arrows, shouts, and views of men. As oftentimes an eagle, ere the sun Throws o'er the varying earth his early ray, Stands solitary — stands immovable Upon some highest cliff, and rolls his eye, Clear, constant, unobservant, unabased, In the cold light above the dews of morn.
362 psl. - Tho' stiffened by the sludge of barbarism, Or indolent and overgorged at home, Briton or German would take heed that none Who fought for him should perish for the lack Of sustenance : the timid bird herself Will hover round and round until she bring The grain cried out for in the helpless nest. Give me my sword ! Is the point sharp ? Eros. In vain To trust it now ! Antony. Come, bring it ; let me try it. Eros. O heavens and earth ! Help! help! no help is nigh, No duty left but one : less worthily...
333 psl. - Caesar the least of all. Cleopatra. Ah simple child ! Thou knowest not his heart. Iras. I do indeed. Cleopatra. No, nor thy own. Iras. His better ; for of mine I never askt a question. He himself Told me how good he would be. Cleopatra. He told thee ? What ! hast thou seen him ? Iras.
21 psl. - Wide are the regions of our far-famed land : Thou shalt arrive at her remotest bounds, See her best people, choose some holiest house ; Whether where Castro from surrounding vines Hears the hoarse ocean roar among his caves, And, thro...
