Flash'd all their sabres bare, Flash'd as they turn'd in air Sabring the gunners there, Charging an army, while All the world wonder'd ; Plunged in the battery-smoke Right thro' the line they broke; Cossack and Russian Reel'd from the sabre-stroke Shatter'd and sunder'd.

Pagina 91 - From each carv'd nook and fretted bend Cornice and gallery seem to send Tones that with seraph hymns might blend. Three solemn parts together twine In harmony's mysterious line ; Three solemn aisles approach the shrine : Yet all are One— together all, In thoughts that awe but not appal, Teach the adoring heart to fall.
Pagina 46 - Yet love is fellow-service, I believe.' ' Yet in the eye of life's all-seeing sun We shall behold a something we have done, Shall of the work together we have wrought, Beyond our aspiration and our thought, Some not unworthy issue yet receive ; For love is fellow-service, I believe.
Pagina 1 - And the next good thing that ever I loved, Was a bow-kite in the sky : And a little boat on the brooklet's surf, And a dog for my company : And a jingling hoop, with many a bound To my measured strike and true, And a rocket sent up to the firmament, When Even was out so blue.
Pagina 81 - Never indeed was any man more contented with doing his duty in that state of life to which it had pleased God to call him.
