Those ancient, whose resistless eloquence
Wielded at will that fierce democratie,
Shook the arsenal, and fulmin’d over Greece,
To Macedon, and Artaxerxes’ throne.

Or if I would delight my private hours
With music or with poem, where so soon
As in our native language can I find
That solace?

Came forth with pilgrim steps in amice gray.

Irrecoverably dark, total eclipse
Without all hope of day!

    The sun to me is dark
And silent as the moon,
When she deserts the night
Hid in her vacant interlunar cave.
