עמוד 32 - Yet did I never breathe its pure serene Till I heard Chapman speak out loud and bold: Then felt I like some watcher of the skies When a new planet swims into his ken; Or like stout Cortez when with eagle eyes He stared at the Pacific — and all his men Looked at each other with a wild surmise — Silent, upon a peak in Darien.
עמוד 38 - Miserable they! Who, here entangled in the gathering ice, Take their last look of the descending sun; While, full of death, and fierce with tenfold frost, The long long night, incumbent o'er their heads, Falls horrible.
עמוד 59 - As who pursued with yell and blow Still treads the shadow of his foe, And forward bends his head, The ship drove fast, loud roared the blast, And southward aye we fled. And now there came both mist and snow, And it grew wondrous cold; And ice, mast-high, came floating by, As green as emerald...
עמוד 44 - And never more, on sea or shore, Should Sir Humphrey see the light. He sat upon the deck, The Book was in his hand ; " Do not fear ! Heaven is as near...
עמוד 54 - To this great ship, which round the world has run, And match'd in race the chariot of the sun ; • This Pythagorean ship (for it may claim, Without presumption, so deserved a name) ; By knowledge once, and transformation now, In her new shape, this sacred port allow. Drake and his ship could not have wished from Fate A happier station, or more blest estate. For lo ! a seat of endless rest is given To her in Oxford, and to him in heaven.
עמוד 59 - It ate the food it ne'er had eat, And round and round it flew. The ice did split with a thunder-fit; The helmsman steered us through! And a good south wind sprung up behind; The Albatross did follow, And every day, for food or play, Came to the mariners' hollo! In mist or cloud, on mast or shroud, It perched for vespers nine; Whiles all the night, through fog-smoke white, Glimmered the white moon-shine.
עמוד 18 - ... its haughty winds ; yet there are many islands in it, some peopled, others uninhabited. There is no mariner who dares to enter into its deep waters ; or if any have done so, they have merely kept along its coasts, fearful of departing from them. The waves of this ocean, although they roll as high as mountains, yet maintain themselves without breaking ; for if they broke, it would be impossible for ship to plough them...
עמוד 27 - Know that this theory is false: his bark The daring mariner shall urge far o'er The western wave, a smooth and level plain, Albeit the earth is fashioned like a wheel. Man was in ancient days of grosser mould, And Hercules might blush to learn how for Beyond the limits he had vainly set, The dullest sea-boat soon shall wing her way. Men shall descry another hemisphere...
עמוד 29 - ... but if any one shall presume to attempt this, let him know that he will incur the indignation of Almighty God, and of the blessed apostles Peter and Paul.
עמוד 23 - The entire roof is covered with a plating of gold, in the same manner as we cover houses, or more properly churches, with lead. The ceilings of the halls are of the same precious metal ; many of the apartments have small tables of pure gold, of considerable thickness ; and the windows also have golden ornaments.
