Beneath A Mountains Brow

 "Beneath a mountain's brow, the most remote 
And inaccessible by Shepherds trod, 
In a deep cave, dug by no mortals hands 
An Hermit lived,--a melancholy man 
Who was the wonder of our wand'ring swains: 
Austere and lonely--cruel to himself 
They did report him--the cold earth his bed, 
Water his drink, his food the Shepherd's alms.
I went to see him, and my heart was touched With reverence and pity.
Mild he spake, And entering on discourse, such stories told, As made me oft re-visit his sad cell.
