Stran 97 - Call for the robin redbreast, and the wren, Since o'er shady groves they hover, And with leaves and flowers do cover The friendless bodies of unburied men. Call unto his funeral dole The ant, the fieldmouse, and the mole, To rear him hillocks that shall keep him warm. And (when gay tombs are robbed) sustain no harm ; But keep the wolf far thence, that's foe to men.
Stran 270 - He has a framed walk of timber covered with vines, which with others, running on most of his walls without prejudice to his lower trees, yield him a deal of wine.
Stran 208 - How beautiful the lane is to-day, decorated with a thousand colours ! The brown road, and the rich verdure that borders it, strewed with the pale yellow leaves of the elm, just beginning to fall; hedgerows glowing with long wreaths of the bramble in every variety of purplish red; and overhead the unchanged green of the fir...
Stran 86 - Creeping like beaded coral; whilst around Flourish the copse's pride, anemones, With rays like golden studs on ivory laid Most delicate ; but touched with purple clouds, Fit crown for April's fair but changeful brow.
Stran 184 - Patty a night's misery, to be compensated by a lifetime of happiness. Jane was almost as glad to lose a lover as her sister was to regain one. Charles is gone home to his father's to make preparations for his bride; Archibald has taken a great nursery garden, and there is some talk in Aberleigh that the marriage of the two sisters is to be celebrated on the same day.
Stran 269 - Dr. Uvedale, of Enfield, is a great lover of plants, and having an extraordinary art in managing them, is become master of the greatest and choicest collection of exotic greens that is perhaps, any where in this land. His greens take up six or seven houses or roomsteads. His...
Stran 178 - Nearly of an age, (I believe that at this moment both are turned of nineteen, and neither has reached twenty.) exactly of a stature, (so high that Frederick would have coveted them for wives for his tall regiment,) with hazel eyes, large mouths, full lips, white teeth, brown hair, clear, healthy complexions, and that sort of nose which is neither Grecian, nor Roman, nor aquiline, nor le petit...
Stran 270 - ... rudely, and sometimes the coneys work under the wall into the garden. 22. Mr. Richardson at East Barnet has a pretty garden, with fine walks and good flowers ; but the garden not being walled about they have less summer fruit, yet are, therefore, the more industrious in managing the peach and apricot dwarf standards, which, they say, supply them plentifully with very good fruit. There is a...
Stran 177 - Whether from skill or from good fortune, or, as is most probable, from a lucky mixture of both, every thing goes right in his great farm. His crops are the best in the parish ; his hay is never spoiled ; his cattle never die ; his servants never thieve ; his children are never ill. He buys cheap, and sells dear ; money gathers about him like a snow-ball ; and yet, in spite of all this provoking and intolerable prosperity, every body loves Farmer Evans.
Stran 251 - Bristol to the head quarters of the British General. It was determined, therefore, to make Warwick Neck, a place opposite to the British encampment, but at a greater distance than Bristol, the point from which they should depart immediately for Rhode-Island. The most inviolable secrecy was enjoined upon his officers by Major Barton, and they returned to Bristol.
