All colours a suffusion from that light.

If any man obtains that which he merits,
Or any merit that which he obtains.

And calm thoughts, regular as infants’ breath;
And three firm friends, more sure than day and night,—
Himself, his Maker, and the angel Death.
          Complaint. Ed. 1852. The Good Great Man. Ed. 1893.

Makes up life’s tale to many a feeling heart!

5266
    In many ways doth the full heart reveal
The presence of the love it would conceal.
          Motto to Poems written in Later Life.
