Page 363 - Now shrunk and languished with her blood imbrued. As when a rose, erewhile of bloom so gay, Thrown from the careless virgin's breast away, Lies faded on the plain, the living red, The snowy white, and all its fragrance fled; So from her cheeks the roses died away, And pale in death the beauteous Inez lay. With dreadful smiles, and crimsoned with her blood, Round the wan victim the stern murderers stood, Unmindful of the sure, though future hour, Sacred to vengeance and her lover's power.
Page 69 - IMAGEN espantosa de la muerte, sueño cruel, no turbes más mi pecho, mostrándome cortado el nudo estrecho, consuelo solo de mi adversa suerte.

Page 57 - Un monte era de miembros eminente este (que, de Neptuno hijo fiero, de un ojo ilustra el orbe de su frente, émulo casi del mayor lucero) cíclope, a quien el pino más valiente, bastón, le obedecía, tan ligero, y al grave peso junco tan delgado, que un día era bastón y otro cayado.
Page 383 - By cruel want, beneath the parents' eye, In these wide wastes their infant race shall die ; Through dreary wilds, where never pilgrim trod Where caverns yawn, and rocky fragments nod, The hapless lover and his bride shall stray, By night unshelter'd, and forlorn by day.
Page 362 - There in some dreary cavern's rocky womb, Amid the horrors of sepulchral gloom, For him whose love I mourn, my love shall glow, The sigh shall murmur, and the tear shall flow...
Page 398 - Olhai que há tanto tempo que, cantando O vosso Tejo e os vossos Lusitanos, A Fortuna me traz peregrinando, Novos trabalhos vendo e novos danos...
