" Well have I seen that castle, That Castle by the Sea, And the moon above it standing, And the mist rise solemnly.
Página 180 - Our lives are rivers, gliding free To that unfathomed, boundless sea, The silent grave ! Thither all earthly pomp and boast Roll, to be swallowed up and lost In one dark wave. Thither the mighty torrents stray, Thither the brook pursues its way, And tinkling rill. There all are equal ; side by side The poor man and the son of pride Lie calm and still.
Página 440 - Ere long the sun hardly rises above the horizon, or does not rise at all. The moon and the stars shine through the day; only, at noon, they are pale and wan, and in the southern sky a red, fiery glow, as of sunset, burns along the horizon, and then goes out.

Página 411 - Such shadows from the summer sun, such odors on the breeze : I threw my mantle on the ground, that I might rest at ease, And stretched upon the greensward lay in the shadow of the trees. There soft reclining in the shade, all cares beside me flung, I heard the soft and mellow notes that through the woodland rung : Ear never listened to a strain, from instrument or tongue, So mellow and harmonious as the songs above me sung.
Página 59 - Ah, to build, to build ! That is the noblest art of all the arts.
