What is she, cut from love and faith, But some wild Pallas from the brain Of demons ? fiery-hot to burst All barriers in her onward race For power.

Page 47 - I was sitting one morning very quietly at my breakfast-table doing nothing, and thinking of nothing, when I was startled by a singular shadowy appearance at the outside corner, of the field of vision of the left eye. It gradually advanced into the field of view, and then appeared to be a pattern in...
Page 62 - For one of us was born a twin, And not a soul knew which. One day, to make the matter worse, Before our names were fixed, As we were being washed by nurse, We got completely mixed ; And thus, you see, by fate's decree, Or rather nurse's whim, My brother John got christened me, And I got christened him. This fatal likeness...

One of these scenes I perfectly recollect. A crowd was assembled round a hole in the ice, into which a youth had fallen. His mother was standing in agony on the brink, and there were the floating fragments and something of a shadowy form under the blue transparent...
