212 psl. - Whither, midst falling dew, While glow the heavens with the last steps of day, Far, through their rosy depths, dost thou pursue Thy solitary way? Vainly the fowler's eye Might mark thy distant flight to do thee wrong, As, darkly painted on the crimson sky, Thy figure floats along.
241 psl. - And it came to pass at noon, that Elijah mocked them, and said, Cry aloud : for he is a god ; either he is talking, or he is pursuing, or he is in a journey, or peradventure he sleepeth, and must be awaked.
213 psl. - There is a Power whose care Teaches thy way along that pathless coast, The desert and illimitable air, Lone wandering, but not lost.
336 psl. - Awaked the need-fire's slumbering brand, And ruddy blush'd the heaven : For a sheet of flame, from the turret high, Waved like a blood-flag on the sky, All flaring and uneven ; And soon a score of fires, I ween, From height, and hill, and cliff, were seen ; Each with warlike tidings fraught ; Each from each the signal caught ; Each after each they glanced to sight, As stars arise upon the night. They gleam'd on many a dusky tarn, Haunted by the lonely earn ; On many a cairn's grey pyramid, Where...

173 psl. - Remark here that these Finnmen drive away the fishes from the place to which they come. These Finnmen seem to be some of these people that dwell about the Fretum Davis, a full account of whom may be seen in the natural and moral History of the Antilles, Chap. 18. One of their boats sent from Orkney to Edinburgh is to be seen in the Physicians' hall with the Oar and Dart he makes use of for killing Fish.
118 psl. - ... he was alive. It was some alleviation of the deep sorrow of the beholders to see the corpse of their departed sovereign so decorated. High mass was then sung for the deceased. The nobility kept watch by the body during the night. On Monday the remains of King Haco were carried to St. Magnus' Cathedral, where they lay in state that night.
235 psl. - A requiem o'er the dead From out thy gloomy cells A tale of mourning tells, — Tells of man's woe and fall, His sinless glory fled. Then turn thee, little bird ! and take thy flight Where the complaining sea shall sadness bring Thy spirit never more ! Come, quit with me the shore For gladness, and the light Where birds of summer sing ! THE MOSS SUPPLICATETH FOR THE POET.
