Where'er you walk, cool gales shall fan the glade,
Trees where you sit shall crowd into a shade:
Where'er you tread, the blushing flowers shall rise,
And all things flourish where you turn your eyes.

R
While pensive poets painful vigils keep
Sleepless themselves to give their readers sleep.
A

N
Who sees with equal eye, as God of all,
A hero perish, or a sparrow fall,
Atoms or systems into ruin hurled,
And now a bubble burst and now a world.
K
When men grow virtuous in their old age, they only make a sacrifice to God of the devil's leavings.
