Página 208 - Heavens! what a goodly prospect spreads around, Of hills, and dales, and woods, and lawns, and spires, And glittering towns, and gilded streams, till all The stretching landscape into smoke decays!
Página 209 - Summer's drought; Unmatch'd thy guardian oaks; thy valleys float With golden waves : and on thy mountains flocks Bleat numberless ! while, roving round their sides, Bellow the blackening herds in lusty droves.
Página 208 - Or court the forest glades ? or wander wild Among the waving harvests ? or ascend, While radiant summer opens all its pride, Thy hill, delightful Shene?
Página 130 - Not yet enslaved, not wholly vile, O Albion ! O my mother isle ! Thy valleys, fair as Eden's bowers, Glitter green with sunny showers ; Thy grassy uplands' gentle swells Echo to the bleat of flocks {Those grassy hills, those glittering dells Proudly ramparted with rocks) ; And Ocean, 'mid his uproar wild, Speaks safety to his island-child ! Hence, for many a fearless age Has social Quiet loved thy shore ! Nor ever proud invader's rage Or sacked thy towers, or stained thy fields with gore.
