Page 131 - Trust not for freedom to the Franks They have a king who buys and sells; In native swords, and native ranks, The only hope of courage dwells: But Turkish force, and Latin fraud, Would break your shield, however broad.
Page 132 - But words are things, and a small drop of ink, Falling like dew upon a thought, produces That which makes thousands, perhaps millions, think.

Page 153 - Thus lived thus died she ; never more on her Shall sorrow light, or shame She was not made Through years or moons the inner weight to bear, Which colder hearts endure till they are laid By age in earth ; her days and pleasures were Brief, but delightful such as had not staid Long with her destiny ; but she sleeps well By the sea-shore, whereon she loved to dwell.
