Beneath an awful gloom, a night of shade,
By silent darkness more majestic made,
I place thy volume, Young, with reverence place;
Thy volume, worthy of a saint's embrace !
What gospel-truths thy heavenly lines convey,
And steal us from mortality away!
Full on the soul thy rides of rapture flow,
Kindling we hear, and, while we read, we glow!
Exalted by thy theme, we mount on high,
We spurn at earth, we claim our native sky.
Now let the unletter'd, or the letter'd man,
Deny the soul immortal, if he can:
A fout immortal in thy works we sce;
Cau duft and ashes think and write like thee?
