Página 145 - Ah! no; a shepherd of a different stock, And far unlike him, feeds this little flock: A jovial youth, who thinks his Sunday's task As much as God or man can fairly ask ; The rest he gives to loves and labours light, To fields the morning, and to feasts the night; None better skill'd the noisy pack to guide, To urge their chase, to cheer them or to chide; A sportsman keen, he shoots through half the day, And, skill'd at whist, devotes the night to play : Then, while such honours bloom around his head,...

Página 145 - The holy stranger to these dismal walls ; And doth not he, the pious man, appear, He, "passing rich with forty pounds a year?
Página 59 - I went to hear it — for it is not an apparition, but an audition — we set out from the opera, changed our clothes at Northumberland House, the Duke of York, Lady Northumberland, Lady Mary Coke, Lord Hertford and I, all in one...
Página 13 - Like the sweet ballad, this amusing lay Too long detains the walker on his way ; While he attends, new dangers round him throng ; The busy city asks instructive song.
