Pàgina 153 - It will have blood ; they say, blood will have blood : Stones have been known to move, and trees to speak ; Augurs, and understood relations, have By magot-pies, and choughs, and rooks, brought forth The secret'st man of blood.
Pàgina 287 - I'll never love thee more. As Alexander I will reign, And I will reign alone ; My thoughts did evermore disdain A rival on my throne. He either fears his fate too much, Or his deserts are small, Who dares not put it to the touch To gain or lose it all.
Pàgina 189 - Canst thou not minister to a mind diseased, Pluck from the memory a rooted sorrow, Raze out the written troubles of the brain, And with some sweet oblivious antidote Cleanse the stuffed bosom of that perilous stuff Which weighs upon the heart ?

Pàgina 268 - Cameron's gathering' rose! The war-note of Lochiel, which Albyn's hills Have heard, and heard, too, have her Saxon foes: How in the noon of night that pibroch thrills, Savage and shrill! But with the breath which fills Their mountain-pipe, so fill the mountaineers With the fierce native daring which instils The stirring memory of a thousand years, And Evan's, Donald's fame rings in each clansman's ears!

Pàgina 33 - Front, flank, and rear, the squadrons sweep To break the Scottish circle deep That fought around their King. But yet, though thick the shafts as snow, Though charging knights like whirlwinds go, Though bill-men ply the ghastly blow, Unbroken was the ring; The stubborn spear-men still made good Their dark impenetrable wood, Each stepping where his comrade stood, The instant that he fell.
Pàgina 279 - But Gard'ner brave did still behave Like to a hero bright, man; His courage true, like him were few, That still despised flight, man; For king and laws, and country's cause, In honour's bed he lay, man; His life, but not his courage, fled, While he had breath to draw, man.
Pàgina 247 - ... scarce any trace of them ~ was left. His great experience in affairs, his ready compliance with every thing that he thought would please the king, and his bold offering at the most desperate counsels, gained him such an interest in the king, that no attempt against him, nor complaint of him, could ever shake it, till a decay of strength and understanding forced him to let go his hold.
Pàgina 419 - Hail to the State of England ! And conjoin With this a salutation as devout, Made to the spiritual fabric of her Church ; Founded in truth ; by blood of Martyrdom Cemented ; by the hands of Wisdom reared In beauty of holiness, with ordered pomp, Decent, and unreproved.
