Página 11 - ... hill, once more to see The dear abode of peace and privacy ; And as he turns, the thatch among the trees, The smoke's blue wreaths ascending with the breeze, The village-common spotted white with sheep, The church-yard yews round which his fathers sleep ; All rouse Reflection's sadly-pleasing train, And oft he looks and weeps, and looks again.
Página 40 - God! sing ye meadow-streams with gladsome voice! Ye pine-groves, with your soft and soul-like sounds! And they too have a voice, yon piles of snow, And in their perilous fall shall thunder, God!
