| Tis sweet to hear|
At midnight, on the blue and moonlight deep,
The song and oar of Adrias gondolier,
By distance mellowd, oer the waters sweep;
Tis sweet to see the evening star appear;
Tis sweet to listen as the night winds creep
From leaf to leaf; tis sweet to view on high
The rainbow, based on ocean, span the sky.
Byron.Don Juan, Canto I. Stanza 122.

|Tis sweet to hear the watch-dogs honest bark|
Bay deep-mouthd welcome as we draw near home:
Tis sweet to know there is an eye will mark
Our coming, and look brighter when we come:
Tis sweet to be awakend by the lark,
Or lulld by falling waters; sweet the hum
Of bees, the voice of girls, the song of birds,
The lisp of children and their earliest words.
Byron.Don Juan, Canto I. Stanza 123.
|O sweet; O sweet Anne Page!|
Shenstone.Slenders Ghost, Verse 1.
|Sweet is the vintage, when the showering grapes|
In Bacchanal profusion reel to earth,
Purple and gushing; sweet are our escapes
From civic revelry to rural mirth;
Sweet to the miser are his glittering heaps;
Sweet to the father is his first-borns birth;
Sweet is revengeespecially to women,
Pillage to soldiers, prize-money to seamen.
Byron.Don Juan, Canto I. Stanza 124.
