Page 25 - His hinder parts, then springs as broke from bonds, And rampant shakes his brinded mane; the ounce, The libbard, and the tiger, as the mole Rising, the crumbled earth above them threw In hillocks: The swift stag from under ground...
Page 30 - See, through this air, this ocean, and this earth, All matter quick, and bursting into birth. Above, how high, progressive life may go!
