    Yes! even I was in Arcadia born,
    And, in mine infant ears,
    A vow of rapture was by Nature sworn;- ...
  • Zenith And Nadir

'Spring-germs, spring-germs,
I charge you by your life, go back to death.
This glebe is sick, this wind is foul of breath.
Stay: feed the worms.

'Oh! every clod
Is faint, and falters from the war of growth
