Bliss was it in that dawn to be alive,
But to be young was very heaven!

R
Not Chaos, not
The darkest pit of lowest Erebus,
Nor aught of blinder vacancy, scooped out
By help of dreams -- can breed such fear and awe
As fall upon us often when we look
Into our Minds, into the Mind of Man.
A
A voice so thrilling ne'er was heard
In spring-time from the cuckoo-bird,
Breaking the silence of the seas
Among the farthest Hebrides.
N

Were making night do penance for a day
Spent in a round of strenuous idleness.
K
Still glides the stream, and shall for ever glide;
The form remains, the function never dies.
