I saw him sit and his dinner eat, All under the forest tree ; His dinner of chestnut ripe and red, And he ate it heartily.

Pàgina 111 - Sentinels were placed in different parts of the garrison, particularly before the governor's house ; and a regiment of armed men was drawn up in another place, with their general in the front. The whole was made up of a kind of clay which the place affords, was ingeniously contrived, and the light that was thrown upon it gave it a very pretty effect.
Pàgina 61 - I saw a little Wood-Mouse once, Like Oberon in his hall, With the green, green moss beneath his feet, Sit under a mushroom tall. I saw him sit and his dinner eat, All under the forest tree; His dinner of chestnut ripe and red, And he ate it heartily. I wish you could have seen him there...
Pàgina 153 - THIS world hath not a feeling given, So holy and so fair, So like the intercourse in heaven Which blessed spirits share, As those sweet friendships which entwine Young kindred hearts around, And make an earthly Eden shine In home's delightful bound. Bright seraphs, pausing on the wing, Might gaze on and approve That beautiful and precious thing, An elder sister's love. To those who never knew that tie, Oh ! how shall I express The charms that in its compass lie Their worth and loveliness ? To lean...
