Page 164 - FAR in a wild, unknown to public view, From youth to age a reverend hermit grew ; The moss his bed, the cave his humble cell, His food the fruits, his drink the crystal well : Remote from man, with God he pass'd the days, Prayer all his business, all his pleasure praise.
Page 176 - These charms, success in our bright region find, And force an angel down...

Here long they knock, but knock or call in vain, Driven by the wind, and batter'd by the rain.
