الصفحة 150 - I change, but I cannot die. For after the rain, when with never a stain, And the nursling of the sky: I pass through the pores of the ocean and shores ; The pavilion of heaven is bare, And the winds and sunbeams with their convex gleams, Build up the blue dome of

Now, give the hautboys breath; he comes ! he comes!
الصفحة 249 - These are Grecian ghosts, that in battle were slain, And unburied remain Inglorious on the plain ; Give the vengeance due To the valiant crew : Behold how they toss their torches on high ! How they point to the Persian abodes, And glitt'ring temples of their hostile gods! The Princes applaud, with
الصفحة 249 - joy ; And the king seized a flambeau, with zeal to destroy ; Thai's led the way, To light him to his prey, And, like another Helen, fired another Troy. Thus long ago, Ere heaving bellows learn'd to blow, While organs yet were mute, Timotheus to his breathing flute And sounding lyre, Could swell the soul to rage, or kindle
