Sayfa 84 - And what wul ye leive to your ain mither deir? My deir son, now tell me O." "The curse of hell frae me sall ye beir, Mither, mither, The curse of hell frae me sall ye beir, Sic counseils ye gave to me O.
Sayfa 222 - With coral clasps and amber studs: And if these pleasures may thee move, Come live with me, and be my love.
Sayfa 296 - Content I live, this is my stay; I seek no more than may suffice; I press to bear no haughty sway; Look, what I lack my mind supplies. Lo, thus I triumph like a king, Content with that my mind doth bring.
Sayfa 153 - ADAM BELL, CLYM OF THE CLOUGH, AND WILLIAM OF CLOUDESLY, —were three noted outlaws, whose skill in archery rendered them formerly as famous in the North of England, as Robin Hood and his fellows were in the midland counties.
