    Ruin seize thee, ruthless king!
  Confusion on thy banners wait!
Though fann’d by Conquest’s crimson wing,
  They mock the air with idle state.
          The Bard. I. 1, Line 1.
4170
    Loose his beard, and hoary hair
Stream’d like a meteor to the troubled air. 1
          The Bard. I. 2, Line 5.
4171
    To high-born Hoel’s harp, or soft Llewellyn’s lay.
          The Bard. I. 2, Line 14.

    Weave the warp, and weave the woof,
  The winding-sheet of Edward’s race.
Give ample room and verge enough 3
  The characters of hell to trace.
          The Bard. II. 1, Line 1.
4174
    Fair laughs the morn, and soft the zephyr blows;
  While proudly riding o’er the azure realm
In gallant trim the gilded vessel goes,
  Youth on the prow, and Pleasure at the helm;
Regardless of the sweeping whirlwind’s sway,
That hush’d in grim repose expects his evening prey.
          The Bard. II. 2, Line 9.
4175
    Ye towers of Julius, London’s lasting shame,
With many a foul and midnight murder fed.
          The Bard. II. 3, Line 11.
4176
    Visions of glory, spare my aching sight!
Ye unborn ages, crowd not on my soul!
          The Bard. III. 1, Line 11.
4177
    And truth severe, by fairy fiction drest.
          The Bard. III. 3, Line 3.
4178
    Comus and his midnight crew.
          Ode for Music. Line 2.
4179
    While bright-eyed Science watches round.
          Ode for Music. Chorus. Line 3.
4180
    The still small voice of gratitude.
          Ode for Music. V. Line 8.
