WHY should we crave a hallow'd spot?
A church in every grove that spreads
AFFLICTION then is ours:
We are the trees whom shaking fastens more, While blustering winds destroy the wanton towers, And ruffle all their curious busts and store.
My God, so temper joy and woe,
That thy bright beams may tame thy bow.
HIST! When the airy stress
Of music's kiss impregnates the free winds,
I CANNOT sleep; my eyes' ill-neighbouring lids
The stooping scythe-man, that doth barb the field,
Repines and quarrels: alas, he's Goodman Tell-clock;
INTERCESSION BETWEEN A FATHER AND SON.
THERE stands before you
The youth and golden top of your existence,
When you were in the prologue of your time,
Under his life. And thou, my younger master,
And made this world for thee, in making thee.
SEE how, beneath the moonbeam's smile,
And, having swell'd a moment there,
LET thy mind still be bent, still plotting, where
AND lo! from opening clouds I saw emerge
THE jars of brothers, two such mighty ones,
The breach scarce heard; but view the beaten current,
In her face,
Though something touch'd by sorrow, you may trace
HOW TO LIVE.
ALARIC A. WATTS.
We live in deeds, not years; in thoughts, not breaths; In feelings, not in figures on a dial.
We should count time by heart-throbs. He most lives Who thinks most; feels the noblest; acts the best.
