Stranica 1 - THE STORY OF THE GLITTERING PLAIN OR THE LAND OF LIVING MEN. CHAPTER I. OF THOSE THREE WHO CAME TO THE HOUSE OF THE RAVEN.
Stranica 124 - ... gold and gems, even as he saw it in the orchard-close aforetime : and he beheld her face that it was no longer the face of one sick with sorrow ; but glad, and clear, and most beauteous. Now she opened the book and held it before Hallblithe and turned the leaves so that he might see them clearly ; and therein were woods and castles painted, and burning mountains, and the wall of the world, and kings upon their thrones, and fair women and warriors, all most lovely to behold...
Stranica 117 - ... dark-eyed, amorous of countenance; he it was who was singing a snatch of song as he went lightly on the hall pavement, — a snatch like to this: FAIR is the world, now autumn's wearing, And the sluggard sun lies long abed; Sweet are the days, now winter's nearing, And all winds feign that the wind is dead.

Stranica 1 - She loved him no less, & no man of the kindred gainsaid their love, and they were to be wedded on Midsummer Night. C But one day of early spring, when the days were yet short and the nights long, Hallblithe...

And he said : " What is this ? am I death-doomed this morning that this sight cometh so clearly upon me amidst, the falseness of this unchanging land...
Stranica 1 - ... with them, and their horses were of the best ; but they were no fellowship for a man to be afraid of; for two of them were old and feeble, and the third was dark and sad, and drooping of aspect : it seemed as if they had ridden far and fast, for their spurs were bloody and their horses all a-sweat. Hallblithe hailed them kindly and said : " Ye are wayworn, and maybe ye have to ride further ; so light down and come into the house, and take bite and sup...
Stranica 124 - Hallblithe and turned the leaves so that he might see them clearly; and therein were woods and castles painted, and burning mountains, and the wall of the world, and kings upon their thrones, and fair women and warriors, all most lovely to behold, even as he had seen it aforetime in the orchard when he lay lurking amidst the leaves of the bay-tree. So at last she came to the place in the book wherein was painted Hallblithe's own image over against the image of the Hostage; and he looked thereon and...
