William Drummond, of Hawthornden quotes

- 7 of 7 Results
The Graces naked danced about the place,
The winds and trees amazed
...
My thoughts hold mortal strife;
I do detest my life,
--But he, grim grinning King,
Who caitiffs scorns, and doth the blest surprise,
...
My lute, be as thou wert when thou didst grow
With thy green mother in some shady grove,
...
Repent, repent, and from old errors turn!'
Who listened to his voice, obeyed his cry?
...
The last and greatest Herald of Heaven's King,
Girt with rough skins, hies to the deserts wild,
...
Parched body, hollow eyes, some uncouth thing
Made him appear, long since from earth exiled.
