Why should we crave a hallow'd spot ?
AFFLICTION then is ours :
We are the trees whom shaking fastens more, While blustering winds destroy the wanton towers,
And ruffle all their curious busts and store.
Hist! when the airy stress
I CANNOT sleep; my eyes’ ill-neighbouring lids
The stooping scythe-man, that doth barb the field,
INTERCESSION BETWEEN A FATHER AND SON.
THERE stands before you
SEE how, beneath the moonbeam's smile,
Let thy mind still be bent, still plotting, where
And when, and how thy business may be done.
Though he alights sometimes, still goeth on.
And lo! from opening clouds I saw emerge
shall see a thousand angry rings
BEAUMONT AND FLETCHER.
In her face, Though something touch'd by sorrow, you may trace The all she was, when first in life's young spring, Like the gay bee-bird on delighted wing, She stoop'd to cull the honey from each flower That bares its breast in joy's luxuriant bower! O'er her pure forehead, pale as moonlit snow, Her ebon locks are parted; and her brow Stands forth like morning from the shades of nightSerene, though clouds hang over it.
