About this title


This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1888 edition. Excerpt: the weight Of the weak flesh, is more in fear of death The more the false persuasion is declared. Full ninety times the sun had bathed his face In the wet ocean, ending his annual round, Ere thou attainedst to the Peace Divine. But now that Heaven has taken thee away From wretchedness like ours, still sorrowest thou At Heaven's decree that I should spring from thee Thou art to dying, dead, and made divine; Thou neither wishcst nor dost fear a change: T cannot choose but envy thee for this. Fortune and time no longer now shall strive To cross thy threshold, bringing in their train Uncertain cheerfulness and certain pain. There are no clouds to darken thy bright day, No portioned hours to bind thee 'gainst thy will, Nor chance nor need to force thee here and there. Night cannot hide thy glory, nor can day Increase its brightness; e'en meridian sun, With all its heat, fails to enhance thy light. From thy calm death, I learn to meet my end, 0 happy father! and in thought I see My passage upwards into heavenly spheres. Death is not, as some think, the worst of ills To him whose latest day outshines the first Through grace divine, close to the seat of God; There where (to Him be thanks!) I think thce now, And hope to see again, if my cold heart Be raised from earthly mire to where thou art. And if 'twixt sire and son the noblest lovo Still grows in heaven, where every virtue grows, While giving glory to my heavenly Lord, 1 shall rejoice with thee, in heaven's bliss." Moete m Lodovico Padre, Dopo La Mokte Di Buo-Karroto Fratello. " Gia piansi e sospirai pur tanto e tanto Ch" io mi credei per sempre ogni dolore Coi sospiri esalar, vcrsar col pianto. Ma morte al fonte di cotal umore Le radici e le vcne invida impingua, E duol rinnova all' alma e pena...
