The blessing of him that, was ready to perish came upon me: And I caused the widow's heart to sing for joy.
Página 143 - I love the language, that soft bastard Latin, Which melts like kisses from a female mouth, And sounds as if it should be writ on satin, With syllables which breathe of the sweet South, And gentle liquids gliding all so pat in, That not a single accent seems uncouth, Like our harsh northern whistling, grunting guttural, , Which we're obliged to hiss, and spit. and sputter alL...
