...on the farm of Braehead."
"Oh, well," replied the King, "your company I need not dread." 

"And perhaps you'll accompany me a little way towards Edinburgh,
Because at present I'm not free from sorrow.
And if you have any particular wish to have gratified,
Let me know it, and it shall not be denied." 

Then honest John said, thinking it no harm,
"Sir, I would like to be the owner of Braehead farm;
But by letting me know who you are it would give my mind relief...Read more of this...

...lades, caverns and bowers, and halls
Built round with ivy, which the waterfalls
Illumining, with sound that never fails
Accompany the noonday nightingales;
And all the place is peopled with sweet airs;
The light clear element which the isle wears
Is heavy with the scent of lemon-flowers,
Which floats like mist laden with unseen showers,
And falls upon the eyelids like faint sleep;
And from the moss violets and jonquils peep
And dart their arrowy odour through the brain
Till y...Read more of this...

...mist moves in waves,
Paris tries to keep pace with its tower
And reins in its herd of bridges.

"Also other cities accompany Paris,
They are adorned with glass, arrayed in iron,
But for today that would be too much,

Notwithstanding Despair --

Of the Ones that pursued it
Suing it not to go
Some have solaced the longing
To accompany --

Some -- rescinded the Wrench --
Others -- Shall I say
Plated the residue of Adz
With Monotony....Read more of this...

...gh heaven, and fill again 
These men’s profoundest mind: 

‘Children of men! the unseen Power, whose eye 
For ever doth accompany mankind, 
Hath looked on no religion scornfully 
That men did ever find. 

‘Which has not taught weak wills how much they can? 
Which has not fall’n on the dry heart like rain? 
Which has not cried to sunk, self-weary man: 
Thou must be born again!

In pride of life the ages of your sires, 
But that y...Read more of this...

...air, sound, silence,
Plant, quadruped, bird,
By one music enchanted,
One deity stirred,--
Each the other adorning,
Accompany still;
Night veileth the morning,
The vapor the hill.

"The babe by its mother
Lies bathed in joy;
Glide its hours uncounted,--
The sun is its toy;
Shines the peace of all being,
Without cloud, in its eyes;
And the sum of the world
In soft miniature lies.

"But man crouches and blushes,
Absconds and conceals;

...Verses to accompany a portrait of Cromwell

Bright Martial Maid, Queen of the frozen zone, 
The northern pole supports thy shining throne. 
Behold what furrows age and steel can plough; 
The helmet's weight oppressed this wrinkled brow. 
Through fate's untrodden paths I move; my hands 
Still act my free-born people's bold commands; 
Yet this stern shade, to yo...Read more of this...

Black road wove ahead of me,
Drizzling rain fell,
To accompany me
Someone asked for a spell.
I agreed, but I forgot
To see him in light of day,
And then it was strange
To remember the way.
Like incense of thousand censers
Flowed the fog
And the companion bothered
The heart with a song.
Ancient gates I remember
And the end of the way --
There the man who went with me
"Forgive," did say....Read more of this...
