Samuel Rogers Rise Poems

  • 1.
    Delle cose custode, e dispensiera.

  • 2.
    While thro' the broken pane the tempest sighs,
    And my step falters on the faithless floor,
    Shades of departed joys around me rise,
    With many a face that smiles on me no more;
  • 3.
    And dost thou still, thou mass of breathing stone,
    (Thy giant limbs to night and chaos hurl'd)
    Still sit as on the fragment of a world;
    Surviving all, majestic and alone?
  • 4.
    There, in that bed so closely curtain'd round,
    Worn to a shade, and wan with slow decay,
    A father sleeps! Oh hush'd be every sound!
    Soft may we breathe the midnight hours away!
  • 5.
    Ah! why with tell-tale tongue reveal [1]
    What most her blushes would conceal?
    Why lift that modest veil to trace
    The seraph-sweetness of her face?
  • 6.
    The sun-beams streak the azure skies,
    And line with light the mountain's brow:
    With hounds and horns the hunters rise,
    And chase the roebuck thro' the snow.
  • 7.
    I. 1.

    Hence, to the realms of Night, dire Demon, hence!
    Thy chain of adamant can bind
  • 8.
    Whoe'er thou art, approach, and, with a sigh,
    Mark where the small remains of Greatness lie.[2]
    There sleeps the dust of Him for ever gone;
    How near the Scene where once his Glory shone!

John Greenleaf Whittier Poem
The Light That Is Felt
 by John Greenleaf Whittier

A tender child of summers three,
Seeking her little bed at night,
Paused on the dark stair timidly.
'Oh, mother! Take my hand,' said she,
'And then the dark will all be light.'

We older children grope our way
From dark behind to dark before;
