107 페이지 - Thou art a monument without a tomb, And art alive still while thy book doth live And we have wits to read and praise to give. That I not mix thee so, my brain excuses, I mean with great, but disproportioned Muses; For if I thought my judgment were of years, I should commit thee surely with thy peers, And tell how far thou didst our Lyly outshine, Or sporting Kyd, or Marlowe's mighty line.
107 페이지 - Triumph, my Britain, thou hast one to show, To whom all Scenes of Europe homage owe. He was not of an age, but for all time ! And all the Muses still were in their prime When like Apollo he came forth to warm Our ears or like a Mercury to charm ! Nature herself was proud of his designs, And joyed to wear the dressing of his lines ! Which were so richly spun.
163 페이지 - To hide their prickles till they 're grown, And then declare themselves, and tear Whatever ventures to come near; So a smooth knave does greater feats Than one that idly rails and threats, And all the mischief that he meant, Does, like a rattlesnake, prevent.

30 페이지 - A VIRTUOUS, learn'd Society, of late The pride and glory of a foreign state, Made an agreement, on a summer's night, To search the Moon at full by her own light ; To take a perfect...
28 페이지 - And after explicate the rest, As they should find cause for the best. To this, as th' only expedient, The whole assembly gave consent; But ere the tube was half let down, It cleared the first phenomenon; For, at the end, prodigious swarms Of flies, and gnats, like men in arms, * The mode of election adopted by the Society.
52 페이지 - Or loiter lazily behind, And clog the air with gusts of wind? Or whether crescents in the wane, For so an author has it plain, Do burn quite out, or wear away Their snuffs upon the edge of day? Whether the sea increase, or waste, And, if it do, how long 'twill last? Or if the sun approaches near The earth, how soon it will be there? These were their learned...
88 페이지 - Tis pity Wine, which Nature meant To man in kindness to present, And gave him kindly, to caress And cherish his frail happiness, Of equal virtue to renew His wearied mind and body too, Should (like the cider-tree in Eden, Which only grew to be forbidden) No sooner come to be enjoy'd, But the...
