Page 507 - But clear and artless, pouring through the plain Health to the sick, and solace to the swain. Whose causeway parts the vale with shady rows ? Whose seats the weary traveller repose ? Who taught that heav'n-directed spire to rise ? " The Man of Ross" — each lisping babe replies. Behold the market-place with poor o'erspread ! The man of Ross...
Page 507 - Ross," each lisping babe replies. Behold the market-place with poor o'erspread ! The Man of Ross divides the weekly bread : He feeds yon alms-house, neat, but void of state, Where Age and Want sit smiling at the gate ; Him portion'd maids, apprentic'd orphans blest, The young who labour, and the old who rest. Is any sick ? the Man of Ross relieves, Prescribes, attends, the medicine makes, and gives.

Page 384 - Forgive, blest shade, the tributary tear, That mourns thy exit from a world like this ; Forgive the wish that would have kept thee here, And stayed thy progress to the seats of bliss • No more confined to grov'ling scenes of night, No more a tenant pent in mortal clay, Now should we rather hail thy glorious flight, And trace thy journey to the realms of day.

Page 155 - Proud Nimrod first the bloody chase began, A mighty hunter, and his prey was man: Our haughty Norman ' boasts that barb'rous name, And makes his trembling slaves the royal game. The fields are ravish'd from th...
Page 175 - King William II., surnamed Rufus, being slain, as before related, was laid in a cart belonging to one Purkess, and drawn from hence to Winchester, and buried in the cathedral church of that city.
Page 155 - The fields are ravish'd from th' industrious swains, From men their cities, and from gods their fanes ; The levell'd towns with weeds lie cover'd o'er ; The hollow winds through naked temples roar : Round broken columns clasping ivy twin'd ; O'er heaps of ruin stalk'd the stately hind ; The fox obscene to gaping tombs retires, And savage bowlings fill the sacred quires. Aw'd by his nobles, by his commons curst, Th...
