Sayfa 405 - Here charity hath fix'd her chosen seat, Oft listening tearful when the wild winds beat, With hollow bodings round your ancient walls : And pity, at the dark and stormy hour Of midnight, when the moon is hid on high, Keeps her lone watch upon the topmost tower, And turns her ear to each expiring cry ; Blest if her aid some fainting wretch might save, And snatch him cold and speechless from the wave.
Sayfa 399 - Saxon strength that abbey frowned, With massive arches broad and round, That rose alternate, row and row, On ponderous columns, short and low, Built ere the art was known, By pointed aisle and shafted stalk The arcades of an alleyed walk To emulate in stone.

Sayfa 216 - Haselrig may receive commands to supply it with guns and ammunition from Newcastle ; and be otherwise enabled by you to furnish this Garrison with all other necessaries, according as a place of that importance will require. Desiring that these mercies may beget trust and thankfulness to God the only author of them, and an improvement of them to His glory and the good of this poor Kingdom, I rest, Your most humble servant, OLIVER CROMWELL.* LETTER LXXVI.

Sayfa 416 - Young, master glazier to her majesty, feeling a sweet savour to come from thence, and seeing the same dried from all moisture, and yet the form remaining, with the hair of the head, and beard red, brought it to London to his house in Wood Street, where for a time he kept it for the sweetness, but in the end caused the sexton of that church to bury it amongst other bones taken out of their charnel, &c.
Sayfa 399 - Of staves and sandall'd feet the trace. As to the port the galley flew, Higher and higher rose to view The Castle with its battled walls, The ancient monastery's halls, A solemn, huge, and dark-red pile, Placed on the margin of the isle. In Saxon strength that abbey frown'd, With massive arches broad and round, That rose alternate, row and row, On ponderous columns, short and low, Built ere the art was known, By pointed aisle, and shafted stalk, The arcades of an alley'd walk ; To emulate in stone.
Sayfa 221 - Scotch cream : bringing the reversion of it to their tents, some got dishf uls, and some hatfuls; and the cream being now low in the vessel, one fellow would have a modest drink, and so lifts the kirn to his mouth: but another canting it up, it falls over his head ; and the man is lost in it, all the cream trickles down his apparel, and his head...
