Страница 320 - Of Truth, of Grandeur, Beauty, Love, and Hope, And melancholy Fear subdued by Faith ; Of blessed consolations in distress ; Of moral strength, and intellectual Power ; 243 Of joy in widest commonalty spread...
Страница 319 - Pure, or with no unpleasing sadness mixed ; And I am conscious of affecting thoughts And dear remembrances, whose presence soothes Or elevates the Mind, intent to weigh The good and evil of our mortal state. — To these emotions, whencesoe'er they come, Whether from breath of outward circumstance, Or from the Soul — an impulse to herself — I would give utterance in numerous verse.
