Página 336 - Full long this lesson, Pupil fair ! All pupils else hath he forsook ; He draws still nearer to thy chair, And bends yet closer o'er the book. As time flies on, now fast, now fleeter, More slowly is the page turned o'er ; The lesson seems to both the sweeter, And more enchanting grows the lore.

Now fades in him the scholar's glory ; For he would give the fame he sought, With thee to read the simplest story, And learn what sages never taught. The precious wealth of countless books, Lies stowed within his grasping mind ; Yet should he not peruse thy looks, He now were more than Ignorance blind. From many a language, old, enchanting, Rare truths to nations he unrolls ; But one old language...

But hark ! what sound indeed breaks through The silence of that life-long hour ! Melodious tinklings, such as sue For favour near a lady's bower. Ah ! Maid of Padua, music swelling In tribute to thy radiant charms, Now greets thee in thy father's dwelling, To woo thee from a father's arms. The suitor comes with song and lute, Youth, riches,...

The entrance to this place is spacious, with almost perpendicular mountains on either hand, one of which, from its peculiar form, is called the Sugar Loaf. To the westward, in the distance, are innumerable small islands, just dotting the surface of the broad river,...
