    Yes, while I stood and gazed, my temples bare,
And shot my being through earth, sea, and air,
Possessing all things with intensest love,
O Liberty! my spirit felt thee there.

    Forth from his dark and lonely hiding-place
(Portentous sight!) the owlet Atheism,
Sailing on obscene wings athwart the noon,
Drops his blue-fring’d lids, and holds them close,
And hooting at the glorious sun in heaven
Cries out, “Where is it?”
          Fears in Solitude.
5247

  Is pride that apes humility. 1
          The Devil’s Thoughts.

    All thoughts, all passions, all delights,
Whatever stirs this mortal frame,
  All are but ministers of Love,
    And feed his sacred flame.
          Love.

          Reflections on having left a Place of Retirement.

For thee, my gentle-hearted Charles, to whom
No sound is dissonant which tells of life.
          This Lime-tree Bower my Prison.

    Hast thou a charm to stay the morning star
In his steep course?
          Hymn in the Vale of Chamouni.
5252
    Risest from forth thy silent sea of pines.
          Hymn in the Vale of Chamouni.
5253
    Motionless torrents! silent cataracts!
          Hymn in the Vale of Chamouni.
5254
    Ye living flowers that skirt the eternal frost.
          Hymn in the Vale of Chamouni.
5255
    Earth with her thousand voices praises God.
          Hymn in the Vale of Chamouni.
5256
    Tranquillity! thou better name
Than all the family of Fame.
          Ode to Tranquillity.

His favourite sin
Is pride that apes humility.
