Threw his arrows in the sea.

Where'er thy happy looks may glow.
Joy sheds its roses o'er thy cheek,
Thy tears themselves do but bespeak

To take on bestial forms; subduing so
Their natures, even their divinity,

Runs kindling through the air,
Making it such as gods respire,

And oâ??er the sun-parched hills all brown and dry.

And one a soulless clod.

Define the realm of Switzerland.

Show'd the heart's universe where he caroused
