Página 203 - Could you on this fair mountain leave to feed, And batten on this moor? Ha! have you eyes? You cannot call it love; for, at your age, The hey-day in the blood is tame, it's humble, And waits upon the judgment; and what judgment Would stoop from this to this?
Página 203 - Look here, upon this picture, and on this, The counterfeit presentment of two brothers. See, what a grace was seated on this brow: Hyperion's curls; the front of Jove himselt; An eye like Mars, to threaten and command;' A station like the herald Mercury New-lighted on a heaven-kissing hill; A combination, and a form, indeed, Where every god did seem to set his seal, To give the world assurance of a man : This was your husband.

I find I incorporate gneiss, coal, long-threaded moss, fruits, grains...

Página 201 - Now, mother, what's the matter? Hamlet, thou hast thy father much offended. Mother, you have my father much offended. Come, come, you answer with an idle tongue. Go, go, you question with a wicked tongue. Why, how now, Hamlet!
Página 208 - That we'll see about. Meanwhile some homage to the High Commissioner Who first assigned these frequencies to earth, Who marked these airlanes out. He is the same Who fixed the stars in place, Who set afire the sun and froze the moon and dug the furrows wherein oceans flow. He holds the formula for genesis and death. His hand rests on a dial bigger than infinity. This microphone is not an ordinary instrument, For it looks out on vistas wide indeed: My voice commingles now with northern lights and...
Página 207 - ... As should be radiated in the skies. Do you grant radio is here to stay? Then grant this further: That the mystic ethers were established well before the first word passed between two men: It's only latterly we've seen that speech is buoyant in these waves; A puff or two of years, that's all it is. There may this very moment be, As close to us as one discoverer away, Whole firmaments of stuffs awaiting comprehension. That we'll see about. Meanwhile some homage to the High Commissioner Who first...
Página 30 - Over the radio verse has no visual presence to compete with. Only the ear is engaged and the ear is already half poet. It believes at once: creates and believes. It is the eye which is the realist. It is the eye which must fit everything together, must see everything before and behind. It is the eye and not the ear which refuses to believe in the lovely girlhood of the middleaged soprano who sings Isolde...
