Page 268 - The inferior priestess, at her altar's side, Trembling begins the sacred rites of pride. Unnumbered treasures ope at once, and here The various offerings of the world appear; From each she nicely culls with curious toil, And decks the goddess with the glittering spoil.
Page 34 - Than in five acres now of rented land. Content with little, I can piddle here On brocoli and mutton, round the year ; But ancient friends (though poor, or out of play) That touch my bell, I cannot turn away.
Page 141 - What maintains one Vice, would bring up two Children.
