Page 40 - And I had done a hellish thing, And it would work 'em woe: For all averred, I had killed the bird That made the breeze to blow.
Page 40 - Nor dim nor red. like God's own head. The glorious Sun uprist: Then all averred. I had killed the bird That brought the fog and mist.
Page 419 - The fates and characters of the rhyming tribe often employ my thoughts when I am disposed to be melancholy.
