Έκ θεού αρχώμεσθα. Σέ τοι σεβίζομεν λιταίς, μέγιστε θεός, πάντων Πατέρ, Σωτέρ τ' "Αναξ τε και Κριτά, σα προσκυνούντες έδρανα.

πάντων όσ' έστι θαυμάτων
σον Πνεύμεπίστροφον πέλει,
πάντων δ' όσ' έστι φερτάτων
έκ Σου πέφυκε ταγαθόν.

σης έστι δημιουργίας
η πασα πανταχού φύσις,
και πάνθ' ά καλλιστεύεται
δαιδάλματ' εντίμου τέχνης.

κάν τοις γε πρωτον έκ Σέθεν
γεγάσιν ανθρώπων φρένες,
ας νυν θεοσσύτου φάους
ακτινι θέλξoν ήπία.
ρεϊ δεύρο, δεύρ' αεί, θεός,
σή γέννα πάμφυλος λεώς,
πνέοντες ειρήνην χθονί,
πνέοντες εύνοιαν βροτοίς.

ημείς δε συγγόνω φρενί θνητούς δεδεγμένοι κάσεις δεχοίμεθ' άφθιτον βίον διδόντος εν τέλει θεού.

Heaven.

This world is all a fleeting show,

For man's illusion given;
The smiles of joy, the tears of woe,
Deceitful shine, deceitful flow;

There's nothing true but Heaven.
And false the light on glory's plume

As fading hues of even;
And love, and hope, and beauty's bloom,
Are blossoms gathered for the tomb;

There's nothing bright but Heaven.
Poor wanderers of a stormy day,

From wave to wave we're driven,
And fancy's flash and reason's ray
Serve but to light the troubled way;

There's nothing calm but Heaven.

MOORE.

The Sower.

Siehe, voll Hoffnung vertraust du der Erde den goldenen Samen

Und erwartest im Lenz fröhlich die feimende Saat. Nur in die Furche der Zeit bedenkst du dich Thaten zu streuen,

Die von der Weisheit gefåt still für die Ewigkeit blühn.

SCHILLER.

“Ο χάλκεος Ουρανός.
Vita fugaci similis pompae
Vanis hominem capit illecebris ;
Risus hilares, miseri fletus,
Falsi radiant falsiqve fluunt:

Solidi nihil est nisi caelum.
Splendet inani Gloria crista,
Ceu fluxa rubet vespere nubes;
Et Spes et Amor Formaeqve nitor
Qvid sunt? Tumulo data serta novo:

Nitidi nihil est nisi caelum.
Nos obeuntes deforme fretum
Tumor undarum rapit huc illuc;
Iter incertum vix irradiat
Fax Aonidum, lux Rationis:

Placidi nihil est nisi caelum.

Exspectata Seges. Aurea sulcatae confidis semina terrae,

Praecipiens laeto pectore veris opes; Et piget in vitae sulcis deponere facta,

Qvae bene si sata sint, tempus in omne metas?

[graphic][merged small][merged small][merged small][graphic][merged small]

In this Series the Works of each Author will be carefully collated with the Early Copies, and handsomely printed by Whittingham in Octavo, and no effort will

be spared to render these the best editions extant.

OWER'S CONFESSIO AMANTIS, with Life by Dr.

Pacli and a Glossary. 3 vols. 21. 2s. In antique calf, 3l. 6s.
Only a limited number of Copies printed.

This important work is so scarce that it can seldom be met with even in large libraries. It is wanting in nearly every collection of English Poetry.

lytical Index, by the Rev. EDWARD STEERE, LL. D. 12s. In antique calf, 1l. 1s.
