Página 4 - tis to cast one's eyes so low ! The crows, and choughs, that wing the midway air, Show scarce so gross as beetles. Half way down Hangs one that gathers samphire ; dreadful trade !

Continual trouble of my moody brain Peebles my body by excess of drink And nips me as the bitter north-east wind Doth check the tender blossoms in the spring.

Página 52 - Appearing to the flood, most bravely like a queen, Clad all from head to foot, in gaudy summer's green ; Her mantle richly wrought, with sundry flowers and weeds ; Her moistful temples bound, with wreaths of quivering reeds...
Página 122 - In their play, Mosbie said thus (which seemed to be the watchword for Black Will's coming forth), Now may I take you, sir, if I will. Take me ,' quoth Master Arden ; which way ? With that Black Will stepped forth, and cast a towel about his neck, so to stop his breath and strangle him. Then Mosbie, having at his girdle a pressing iron of fourteen pounds weight, struck him on the head with the same, so that he fell down, and gave a great groan, insomuch that they thought he had been killed.
