Drones his song in the perfect weather;

Thrush and blue-bird came North together.

Whose speed is but the heavy Plummets pace;
And glut thy self with what thy womb devours,

A Hidden Life

Proudly the youth, sudden with manhood crowned,
Went walking by his horses, the first time,
That morning, to the plough. No soldier gay
Feels at his side the throb of the gold hilt

'Midst crowded and uneven-statured sheds,
Alike by rain and sunshine sadly stained.

The Society Upon The Stanislaus

That broke up our Society upon the Stanislow.

I turned and looked another way,
And saw three islands in a bay.

Amours De Voyage, Canto Ii

Is it illusion? or does there a spirit from perfecter ages,
Here, even yet, amid loss, change, and corruption abide?
Does there a spirit we know not, though seek, though we find, comprehend not,
Here to entice and confuse, tempt and evade us, abide?

Ch 03 On The Excellence Of Contentment Story 13

A dervish wanted something and a man told him that a certain individual possessed untold wealth who, if he were made aware of his want, would not consider it proper to fail in supplying it forthwith. The dervish answering that he had no acquaintance with him, the man proposed to show him the house and when the dervish entered he caught sight of a person with hanging lips and sitting morosely. He returned immediately and being asked what he had done replied: â??I excused him from making me a present when I saw his face.â??

Carry not thy necessity to a sour-faced fellow
Because his ill-humour will crush thy hopes.
