Página 273 - LET us go hence, my songs ; she will not hear. Let us go hence together without fear ; Keep silence now, for singing-time is over, And over all old things and all things dear. She loves not you nor me as all we love her. Yea, though we sang as angels in her ear, She would not hear.

At morn the nymph vouchsafed to place Upon her -brow the various wreath; The flowers less blooming than her face, The scent less fragrant than her breath. The flowers she wore along the day; And every nymph and shepherd said, That in her hair they looked more gay, Than glowing in their native bed.
Página 424 - And let the difference between the mass of the sugar and that of the standard pound be drawn upon the same line to the same scale. Then, if that difference were magnified an infinite number of times, it would still be invisible.
