 << Prev Page    Displaying page 2 of 2

Who grasp'd at earthly fame,
  Grasped wind: nay, worse, a serpent grasped that through
    His hand slid smoothly, and was gone; but left
      A sting behind which wrought him endless pain.
      - Course of Time (bk. III, l. 533) [Fame]

Mercy stood in the cloud, with eye that wept
  Essential love.
      - Course of Time (bk. III, l. 658) [Mercy]

He touched his harp, and nations heard, entranced,
  As some vast river of unfailing source,
    Rapid, exhaustless, deep, his numbers flowed,
      And opened new fountains in the human heart.
      - Course of Time (bk. IV, l. 674) [Music]

He laid his hand upon "the Ocean's mane,"
  And played familiar with his hoary locks.
      - Course of Time (bk. IV, l. 689) [Ocean]

As living jewels dropped unstained from heaven.
      - Course of Time (bk. V, l. 158)
        [Babyhood : Proverbial Phrases]

Friends given by God in mercy and in love;
  My counsellors, my comforters, and guides;
    My joy in grief, my second bliss in joy;
      Companions of my young desires; in doubt
        My oracles; my wings in high pursuit.
          Oh! I remember, and will ne'er forget
            Our meeting spots, our chosen sacred hours;
              Our burning words, that utter'd all the soul,
                Our faces beaming with unearthly love;--
                  Sorrow with sorrow sighing, hope with hope
                    Exulting, heart embracing heart entire.
      - Course of Time (bk. V, l. 315) [Friends]

For all are friends in heaven, all faithful friends;
  And many friendships in the days of time
    Begun, are lasting here, and growing still.
      - Course of Time (bk. V, l. 336) [Friends]

Sweet tears! the awful language, eloquent
  Of infinite affection; far too big
    For words.
      - Course of Time (bk. V, l. 633) [Tears]

On his weary couch
  Fat Luxury, sick of the night's debauch,
    Lay groaning, fretful at the obtrusive beam
      That through his lattice peeped derisively.
      - Course of Time (bk. VII, l. 69) [Luxury]

He was a man
  Who stole the livery of the court of Heaven
    To serve the devil in.
      - Course of Time (bk. VIII, l. 616)
        [Hypocrisy : Proverbs]

'Twas slander filled her mouth with lying words;
  Slander, the foulest whelp of Sin.
      - Course of Time (bk. VIII, l. 725)
        [Slander]

He pray'd by quantity,
  And with his repetitions, long and loud,
    All knees were weary.
      - Course of Time (pt. VIII, l. 628) [Prayer]
