Pagina 367 - This road is a mile in length, and carried on in a winding direction, in order to render the natural declivity of the ground passable by carriages. Happy was the imagination that first suggested its name, the gates or portals of the winds ; since, wild as these sons of the tempests are, the massive rocks which nature here presents, seem to promise a barrier sufficiently strong to controul their maddest fury.
Pagina 54 - First, with nice eye, emerging Naiads cull From leathery pods the vegetable wool ; With wiry teeth revolving cards release The tangled knots, and smooth the ravell'd fleece : Next moves the iron hand with fingers fine, Combs the wide card, and forms th
