עמוד 294 - She shall be lov'd and fear'd : her own shall bless her ; Her foes shake like a field of beaten corn, And hang their heads with sorrow. Good grows with her ! In her days every man shall eat in safety, Under his own vine, what he plants, and sing The merry songs of peace to all his neighbours...
עמוד 486 - When France in wrath her giant-limbs upreared, And with that oath, which smote air, earth, and sea, Stamped her strong foot and said she would be free, Bear witness for me, how I hoped and feared!

עמוד 512 - AN old, mad, blind, despised, and dying king ; Princes, the dregs of their dull race, who flow Through public scorn — mud from a muddy spring ; Rulers, who neither see, nor feel, nor know. But leech-like to their fainting country cling, Till they drop, blind in blood...
עמוד 295 - And hang their heads with sorrow : good grows with her In her days every man shall eat in safety Under his own vine what he plants, and sing The merry songs of peace to all his neighbours. God shall be truly known ; and those about her From her shall read the perfect ways of honour, And by those claim their greatness, not by blood.
עמוד 293 - He dying, left the fairest Tanaquill Him to succeede therein by his last will : Fairer and nobler liveth none this howre, Ne like in grace, ne like in learned skill ; Therefore they Glorian call that glorious flowre : Long mayst thou, Glorian!
עמוד 512 - A people starved and stabbed in the untilled field ; An army, which liberticide and prey Makes as a two-edged sword to all who wield ; Golden and sanguine laws which tempt and slay ; Religion Christless, Godless — a book sealed ; A Senate — Time's worst statute unrepealed, — Are graves, from which a glorious Phantom may Burst, to illumine our tempestuous day.
