There, there is Virtue's seat ; Strive to keep her your own ; 'Tis only she can make you great, Though place here make you known.
Pagina 358 - Spring all the graces of the age, And all the loves of time ; Bring all the pleasures of the stage, And relishes of rhyme. Add all the softnesses of courts, The looks, the laughters, and the sports ; And mingle all their sweets and salts, That none may say the triumph halts.
Pagina 43 - All which ended, they were again accited to sea, with a Song of two trebles, whose cadences were iterated by a double echo from several parts of the land.
