'Tis rushing now adown the spout, And gushing out below, Half frantic in its joyousness, And wild in eager flow. The earth is dried and parched with heat, And it hath long'd to be Released from out the selfish cloud, To cool the thirsty tree.
Touch us gently, Time!Let us glide adown thy streamGently,—as we sometimes glideThrough a quiet dream.bryan procter
When raging love with extreme pain Most cruelly distrains my heart; When that my tears, as floods of rain, Bear witness of my woful smart; When sighs have wasted so my breath That I lie at the point of death: I call to mind the navy great That the Greeks brought to Troyè town: And how the boisterous winds did beat Their ships, and rent their sails adown; Till Agamemnon 's daughter's blood Appeased the gods that them withstood.howard, henry, earl of surrey
An harmless flaming meteor shone for hair, And fell adown his shoulders with loose care.Abraham Cowley
It was not till Jesus had cried, "It is finished," and from His riven side the soldier's spear had fetched the blood and water; it was not till then, that the fountain sealed of Incarnate Love became the fountain opened of Redeeming merit, and that the Siloah began to flow, which ever since has flowed adown the oracles of God.
O'er folded blooms On swirls of musk, The beetle booms adown the glooms And bumps along the dusk.james whitcomb riley
Touch us gently, Time! Let us glide adown thy stream Gently, as we sometimes glide Through a quiet dream!
An harmless flaming meteor shone for hair,And fell adown his shoulders with loose care.Abraham Cowley
