THE IMAGE OF GOD.
FROM THE SPANISH OF FRANCISCO DE ALDANA.
O LORD! that seest, from yon starry height,
Celestial King! O let thy presence pass
FROM THE SPANISH.
Laugh of the mountain !- lyre of bird and tree!
THE CELESTIAL PILOT.
FROM DANTE. PURGATORIO, II.
And now, behold! as at the approach of morning, Through the gross vapors, Mars grows fiery red Down in the west upon the ocean floor,
Appeared to me,- would I again could see it!-
And when therefrom I had withdrawn a little Mine eyes, that I might question my conductor, Again I saw it brighter grown and larger.
