Página 17 - Caesar carelessly but nod on him. He had a fever when he was in Spain, And, when the fit was on him, I did mark How he did shake : 'tis true, this god did shake : His coward lips did from their colour fly ; And that same eye whose bend doth awe the world Did lose his lustre...
Página 97 - Fillet of a fenny snake, In the cauldron boil and bake : Eye of newt, and toe of frog, Wool of bat, and tongue of dog, Adder's fork, and blind-worm's sting, Lizard's leg, and owlet's wing, For a charm of powerful trouble, Like a hell-broth boil and bubble. All. Double, double toil and trouble, Fire burn, and cauldron bubble. 3 Witch. Scale of dragon, tooth of wolf : Witches...
Página 17 - tis true, this god did shake ; His coward lips did from their colour fly, And that same eye whose bend doth awe the world Did lose his lustre : I did hear him groan : Ay, and that tongue of his that bade the Romans Mark him and write his speeches in their books, Alas, it cried, 'Give me some drink, Titinius,

Página 127 - Where murder, arson, rape, are brought to pass, With hell-broth vended at three cents a glass. And thus her hands that childless widow wrings, And thus that fratricidal felon swings, While the accessory before the fact Goes free, in goods and character intact. Look on yon alms-house, where from day to day The grave seems cheated of its lawful prey ; Mark well those squalid paupers, and declare What brought nineteen in twenty of them there. Could but the truth upon the canvas glow, The force of fancy...

Página 128 - Atrophy should gather np his shroud, And half-choked Asthma wheeze his wrongs aloud; There pale Consumption by your side should stand, And tottering Palsy point with trembling hand ; Fierce Frenzy's haggard eye with fury glare, While Cholera should poison all the air. All these, and more, with Babel-like acclaims, Should cry to God and man their authors' names. And thus this scourge holds on its noisome way, To sicken, madden, poison, wound, and slay. Ay, thus it ever has gone on, and still, Till...
