Page 144 - One part, one little part, we dimly scan Through the dark medium of life's feverish dream ; Yet dare arraign the whole stupendous plan, If but that little part incongruous seem. Nor is that part perhaps what mortals deem ; Oft from apparent ill our blessings rise. O then renounce that impious self-esteem, That aims to trace the secrets of the skies ; For thou art but of dust ; be humble, and be 'wise.
Page 64 - Who sees with equal eye, as God of all, A hero perish, or a sparrow fall, Atoms or systems into ruin hurl'd, And now a bubble burst, and now a world.
Page i - Montague should smile, New strains ere long shall animate thy frame. And her applause to me is more than fame ; For still with truth accords her taste refin'd.
Page 51 - Though richest hues the peacock's plumes adorn, Yet horror screams from his discordant throat. Rise sons of harmony and hail the morn, While warbling larks on russet pinions float: Or seek at noon the- woodland scene remote, Where the grey linnets carol from the hill.
