That lightly draws its breath,
And feels its life in every limb,
What should it know of death?

    O Reader! had you in your mind
Such stores as silent thought can bring,
O gentle Reader! you would find
A tale in everything.

With coldness still returning;
Alas! the gratitude of men
Hath oftener left me mourning.

Bring sad thoughts to the mind.

Enjoys the air it breathes.
          Lines written in Early Spring.

Which of themselves our minds impress;
That we can feed this mind of ours
In a wise passiveness.

Or surely you ’ll grow double!
Up! up! my friend, and clear your looks!
Why all this toil and trouble?

    Come forth into the light of things,
Let Nature be your teacher.
          The Tables Turned.
4911
    One impulse from a vernal wood
May teach you more of man,
Of moral evil and of good,
Than all the sages can.
          The Tables Turned.
4912
    The bane of all that dread the Devil.
          The Idiot Boy.
