One summer afternoon;

Too long hast thou been dreaming
Unlightened, in this chamber drear,
While summer's sun is beaming!
Space - sweeping soul, what sad refrain
Concludes thy musings once again?

That once would scarce agree together;
I loved the plashing of the surge -
The changing heaven the breezy weather,

I lie beneath her guardian light;
While heaven and earth are whispering me,

'Tis almost time to rest;
What thoughts has left the vanished day,
What feelings, in thy breast?

Of labour hardly...Read More

The stars are clear, though few;
And every window glistens bright,
With leaves of frozen dew. 

The sweet moon through your lattice gleams

To wander through the snow;

How little fraught with real ill,
Or unreal phantoms of distress!
How spring can bring thee glory, yet,
And summer...Read More
