עמוד 15 - I have heard that a minister of state in the reign of queen Elizabeth had all manner of books and ballads brought to him, of what kind soever, and took great notice how much they took with the people; upon which he would, and certainly might, very well judge of their present dispositions, and the most proper way of applying them according to his own purposes.
עמוד 225 - And daughters also to him shall be born. They shall be placed upon the ground to sleep ; Their playthings tiles, their dress the simplest worn ; Their part alike from good and ill to keep, And ne'er their parents' hearts to cause to mourn ; To cook the food, and spirit-malt to steep.
עמוד 297 - Oh! great is God; his glance on earth he bent, Scanning our regions with severe intent For one whose rule the people should content. " The earlier lines of kings had practised ill, And ruling, ruled not after God's just will; He therefore 'mong the States was searching still.
עמוד 168 - ... left," the ruler cries; And to its mark his arrow flies. The hunting done, northward he goes; And in the park the driver shows The horses' points, and his own skill That rules and guides them at his will.
עמוד 220 - The withered leaves the eager searcher sees. The hurtful ne'er without some good was born; — The stones that mar the hill will grind the corn. All true words spread, as from the marsh's eye The crane's sonorous note ascends the sky. Goodness throughout the widest sphere abides, As fish round isle and through the ocean glides. And lesser good near greater you shall see, As grows the paper shrub 'neath sandal-tree.
עמוד 178 - Like splendid robes appear the wings Of the ephemeral fly; And such the pomp of those great men, Which soon in death shall lie! I grieve! Would they but come to me! To teach them I should try. The...
עמוד 79 - O sun, should ever be complete, While thine, O changing moon, doth wax and wane. But now our sun hath waned, weak and effete, And moons are ever full. My heart with pain Is firmly bound, and held in sorrow's chain, As to the body cleaves an unwashed dress. Silent I think of my sad case; in vain I try to find relief from my distress. Would I had wings to fly where ills no longer...
עמוד 280 - Both rush and grass from the bright clouds The genial dew partake. Kind and impartial, nature's laws No odious difference make. But providence appears unkind; Events are often hard. This man, to principle untrue, Denies me his regard. Northward the pools their waters send, To flood each paddy field; So get the fields the sap they need, Their store of rice to yield. But that great man no deed of grace Deigns to bestow on me. My songs are sighs. At thought of him My heart aches wearily. The mulberry...
עמוד 224 - Grand is the hall the noble lord ascends ; In height, like human form, most reverent, grand ; And straight, as flies the shaft when bow unbends ; Its tints like hues when pheasant's wings expand.
עמוד 193 - On dashed my four steeds, without halt, without stay, Though toilsome and winding from -Chow was the way. I wished to return — but the monarch's command Forbade that his business be done with slack hand; And my heart was with sadness oppressed. On dashed my four steeds; I ne'er slackened the reins. They snorted and panted — all white, with black manes. I wished to return, but our sovereign's command Forbade that his business be done with slack hand; — And I dared not to pause or to rest. Unresting...
