Pagina 129 - Nor public flame, nor private, dares to shine; Nor human spark is left, nor glimpse divine! Lo! thy dread empire, CHAOS! is restored; Light dies before thy uncreating word: Thy hand, great Anarch! lets the curtain fall; And universal darkness buries all.
Pagina 107 - Placed at the door of learning, youth to guide, We never suffer it to stand too wide. To ask, to guess, to know, as they commence...
Pagina 129 - Shrinks to her second cause, and is no more. Physic of Metaphysic begs defence, And Metaphysic calls for aid on Sense! See Mystery to Mathematics fly! In vain ! they gaze, turn giddy, rave and die.
Pagina 102 - The moon-struck prophet felt the madding hour : Then rose the seed of Chaos, and of Night, To blot out order, and extinguish light, Of dull and venal a new world to mould, And bring Saturnian days of lead and gold.
Pagina 108 - Muse gave o'er, There Talbot sunk, and was a wit no more ! How sweet an Ovid, Murray was our boast! How many Martials were in Pulteney lost!

Pagina 59 - Round him much embryo, much abortion lay, Much future ode, and abdicated play...
Pagina 67 - And here she plann'd th' imperial seat of fools. Here to her chosen all her works she shows, Prose swell'd to verse, verse loitering into prose : How random thoughts now meaning chance to find. Now leave all memory of sense behind : How prologues into prefaces decay, And these to notes are fritter'd quite away : How index-learning turns no student pale, Yet holds the eel of science by the tail...
Pagina 82 - Now look through fate ! behold the scene she draws ! What aids, what armies, to assert her cause ! See all her progeny, illustrious sight ! Behold, and count them, as they rise to light...
