To me, who, vine to stone, clung close to thee,. One less than thou had ne'er known such regret. Could doubt have swayed thee, then I ask,. But thee no doubt confused, no problems vexed. Yes, Doubt I likewise must discard. There where we flourished like a fruitful palm,. Midst the four thousand of our tribe who held. For some I write it with flushed cheek, bowed head ,. Thou couldst not fear extinction for our race;.
Here then the moment comes when I crave light. Help me, O thou who wast my boyhood's guide,. Hark to the tinkling silver bells that adorn the tenderly-carried silken scrolls. Woe to the straggler who falls by the wayside! Oh the weary march, oh the uptorn roots of home, oh the blankness of the receding goal! Whither shall they turn?

OVER a boundless plain went a man, carrying seed.
From his hand dropped the fecund seed. Under its branches a divinely beautiful man, crowned with thorns, was nailed to a cross. Again there dropped from his hand the fecund seed. Under its branches a turbaned mighty-limbed Prophet brandished a drawn sword. Lo, his hands are not empty of grain, the strength of his arm is not spent. And always the patient, resolute, martyr face arose in silent rebuke and defiance. A Poet, who plucked from his bosom the quivering heart and fashioned it into a lyre.
A placid-browed Sage, uplifted from earth in celestial meditation. VAST oceanic movements, the flux and reflux of immeasurable tides, oversweep our continent.

Yea, and the century-crowned patriarch whose bounty engirdles the globe;— 7. But thou—hast thou faith in the fortune of Israel? Wouldst thou lighten the anguish of Jacob?

The princesses were then obliged to leave for forty days, but entrusted him with the keys of the palace, with free permission to enter every room but one. On the fortieth day curiosity induced him to open this room, where he saw a horse, which he mounted, and was carried through the air to Bag dad.

At the top of the palace was a saloon, containing tweny-four windows six on each side , and all but one enriched with diamonds, rubies, and emeralds. One was left for the sultan to complete, but all the jewellers in the empire were unable to make one to match the others, so Aladdin commanded "the slaves of the lamp" to complete their work.

In legendary history this word is variously accounted for. One derivation is from Albion, a giant, son of Neptune, its first discoverer, who ruled over the island for forty-four years.

By way of punishment, they were cast adrift in a ship, unmanned, but the wind drove the vessel to our coast, where these Syrian damsels disembarked.
Here they lived the rest of their lives, and married with the aborigines, "a lawless crew of devils. Drayton, in his Polyolbion , says that Albion came from Rome, was "the first martyr of the land," and dying for the faith's sake, left his name to the country, where Offa subsequently reared to him "a rich and sumptuous shrine, with a monastery attached.
Albion , king of Briton, when O'beron held his court in what is now called "Kensington Gardens. Tickell has a poem upon this subject. Albion wars with Jove's Son.

On his wedding-day Admetus neglected to offer sacrifice to Diana and was condemned to die, but Apollo induced the Fates to spare his life if he could find a voluntary substitute. His wife offered to give her life for his, and went away with death; but Hercules fought with Death and restored Alcestes to her husband. This story is the subject of a tragedy Alcestes , by Euripides. Milton alludes to the incident in one of his sonnets: Methought I saw my late espoused saint Brought to me like Alcestes from the grave.
John Milton, Sonnet On his deceased Wife. William Morris has made Alcestes the subject of one of the tales in his Earthly Paradise. A variation of the story is found in Longfellow's The Golden Legend , Henry of Hoheneck when dying was promised his life if a maiden could be found who would give up her life for his. Elsie, the daughter of Gottlieb, a tenant-farmer of the prince offered herself as a sacrifice, and followed her lord to Sorrento to give herself up to Lucifer; but Henry heard of it, and, moved by gratitude, saved Elsie and made her his wife.
Alceste , the hero of Moliere's comedy Le Misanthrope. He has a pure and noble mind that has been soured and disgusted by intercourse with the world.

The name is applied to any valiant hero. Where is the great Alcides of the field, Valiant lord Talbot, earl of Shrewsbury? Shakespeare, 1 Henry VI. In Bojardo's Orlando Innamorato she is a fairy, who carries off Astolfo. In Ariosto's Orlando Furioso she is a kind of Circe, whose garden is a scene of enchantment.
Alcina enjoys her lovers for a season, and then converts them into trees, stones, wild beasts, and so on, as her fancy dictates. The object of this work is to expose the weakness of infidelity. Al'ciphron , "the epicurean," the hero of T. Moore's romance entitled The Epicurean. Like Aleiphron, we swing in air and darkness, and know not whither the wind blows us. While her husband is absent warring against the Telebo'ans, Jupiter assumes the form of Amphitryon; but Amphitryon himself returns home the next day, and great confusion arises between the false and true Amphitryon, which is augmented by Mercury, who personates Sos'ia, the slave of Amphitryon.
