Zeal is that pure and heavenly flame, The fire of love supplies:;; While that which often bears the name, Is self in a disguise. True zeal is merciful and mild, Can pity and forbear:;; The false is headstrong, fierce and wild, And breathes revenge and war.
With eyes up-raised, as one inspired, Pale Melancholy sate retired, And from her Wild sequestered seat, In notes by distance made more sweet, Poured thro' the mellow horn her pensive soul.william collins
O lyric Love, half angel and half bird; And all a wonder and a Wild desire, Boldest of hearts that ever braved the sun, Took sanctuary within the holier blue, And sang a kindred soul out to his face, Yet human at the red-ripe of the heart; When the first summons from the darkling earth Reached thee amid thy chambers, blanched their blue, And bared them of the glory to drop down, To toil for man, to suffer or to die, This is the same voice: can thy soul know change? Hail then, and hearken from the realms of help!Robert Browning
The twilight is sad and cloudy, The wind blows Wild and free, And like the wings of sear-birds Hash the white caps of the sea.Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
"The high tide!" King Alfred cried. "The high tide and the turn! As a tide turns on the tall grey seas, See how they waver in the trees, How stray their spears, how knock their knees, How Wild their watchfires burn!
My soul is awakened, my spirit is soaring; And carried aloft on the wings of the breeze; For above and around me the Wild wind is roaring, Arousing to rapture the earth and the seas.anne brontë
Wild, dark times are rumbling toward us, and the prophet who wishes to write a new apocalypse will have to invent entirely new beasts, and beasts so terrible that the ancient animal symbols of St. John will seem like cooing doves and cupids in comparison.Heinrich Heine
It is not raining rain to me, It's raining daffodils; In every dimpled drop I see Wild flowers on distant hills.Robert Loveman
Then felt I like some watcher of the skies When a new planet swims into his ken; Or like stout Cortez when with eagle eyes He star'd at the Pacific and all his men Look'd at each other with a Wild surmise Silent, upon a peak in Darien.john keats
I have precious little sympathy for the selfish propriety of civilized man, and if a war of races should occur between the Wild beasts and Lord Man, I would be tempted to sympathise with the bears.john muir
When the speeches of Wilson , Clemenceau , and Lloyd George, the worst of the predators, the Wild beasts of imperialism, are repeated here by Martov in the name of the Russian Social Democratic Labour Party … then I say to myself that we have to be on the alert and to realise that the Cheka is indispensable!
There was a time in this fair land when the railroad did not run And the Wild majestic mountains stood alone against the sun Long before the white man and long before the wheel When the green dark forest was too silent to be real... Oh! The song of the future has been sung All the battles have been won On the mountain tops we stand All the world at our command We have opened up the soil with our teardrops and our toilgordon lightfoot
What are these, So wither'd, and so Wild in their attire; That look not like the inhabitants o' th' earth, And yet are on 't?william shakespeare
If I chance to talk a little Wild, forgive me; I had it from my father.william shakespeare
The story of Romulus and Remus being suckled by a wolf is not a meaningless fable. The founders of every State which has risen to eminence have drawn their nourishment and vigor from a similar Wild source. It was because the children of the Empire were not suckled by the wolf that they were conquered and displaced by the children of the Northern forests who were.Henry David Thoreau
No bird flies near, no tiger creeps; alone the whirlwind, Wild and black, assails the tree of death and sweeps away with death upon its back.
To see a world in a grain of sand, And heaven in a Wild flower, Hold infinity in the palm of your hand, And eternity in an hour.william blake
His iron coat all overgrown with rust, Was underneath envelope'd with gold, Whose glistering gloss darkened with filthy dust, Well yet appeare'd, to have been of old A work of rich entail, and curious mold, Woven with antics and Wild imagery.Edmund Spenser
His mind resembled the vast ampitheatre, the Colisæum at Rome. In the centre stood his judgement, which like a mighty gladiator, combated those apprehensions that, like the Wild beasts of the Arena, were all around in cells, ready to be let out upon him. After a conflict, he drives them back into their dens; but not killing them, they were still assailing him.james boswell
Turning our seed-wheat-kennel tares,To burn-grain thistle, and to vaporie darnel,Cockle, Wild oats, rough burs, corn-cumbringTares.guillaume de salluste du bartas
As we go star-stilled in the mystic garden,All the prose of this life run there to rhyme,How eagerly then will the poor heart pardonAll of these hurts of Time!Ah, yes, in that hour of our souls dream-driven,In that high, white hour, O my Wild sea-bride,The tears and the years will be all forgiven, ...And all be justified.edwin markham
Oh! roses and lilies are fair to see; But the Wild bluebell is the flower for me.Louisa A. meredith
But hear thee, Gratiano; Thou art too Wild, too rude and bold of voice; Parts that become thee happily enough, And in such eyes as ours appear not faults; But where thou art not known, why, there they show Something too liberal. Pray thee, take pain To allay with some cold drops of modesty, Thy skipping spirit, lest through thy Wild behavior, I be misconstrued in the place I go to, And lose my hopes.
