To chiosks and arbors thou art brought,
Fondly hoping once again to meet thee,Many a castle in the air erected.
Nature, thou ever budding one,Thou formest each for life's enjoyments,And, like a mother, all thy children dear,Blessest with that sweet heritage,--a homeThe swallow builds the cornice round,Unconscious of the beautiesShe plasters up.The caterpillar spins around the bough,To make her brood a winter house;And thou dost patch, between antiquity'sMost glorious relics,For thy mean use,Oh man, a humble cot,--Enjoyest e'en mid tombs!--Farewell, thou happy woman!
I acknowledge thee no more.Fled is all that gave thee gladness,Fled the cause of all thy sadness,
And swift and swift, in wondrous guise,
That my features were small--yes, very;Yet then full many a beauteous childWith true affection upon me smil'd.
"Bravo!" added in turn the druggist, with eagerness speaking"Had I but money to spare in my pocket, you surely should have it,Silver and gold alike; for your followers certainly need it.Yet I'll not leave you without a present, if only to show youMy good will, and I hope you will take the will for the action."Thus he spoke, and pull'd out by the strings the leather embroider'dPouch, in which he was wont his stock of tobacco to carry,Daintily open'd and shared its contents--some two or three pipes' full."Small in truth is the gift," he added. The magistrate answered:"Good tobacco is always a welcome present to trav'llers."Then the druggist began his canister to praise very highly.But the pastor drew him away, and the magistrate left them."Come, let us hasten!" exclaimed the sensible man, "for our young friendAnxiously waits; without further delay let him hear the good tidings."
On his cheeks a Spring eternal plays.Erect his head, and firm his tread,And by grace his ev'ry step is led.
I the present needs must fear.
Work my wonders too.
So high above me placed thou seem'st to stand;
Disclose my delight!
