  A terrible man with a terrible name,—
A name which you all know by sight very well,
But which no one can speak, and no one can spell.

    They sin who tell us love can die;
With life all other passions fly,
  All others are but vanity.
     .     .     .     .     .
    Love is indestructible,
  Its holy flame forever burneth;
From heaven it came, to heaven returneth.
     .     .     .     .     .
  It soweth here with toil and care,
But the harvest-time of love is there.
          The Curse of Kehama. Canto x. Stanza 10.

    Oh, when a mother meets on high
  The babe she lost in infancy,

  For all her sorrow, all her tears,
  An over-payment of delight?
          The Curse of Kehama. Canto x. Stanza 11.

    Thou hast been called, O sleep! the friend of woe;
But ’t is the happy that have called thee so.

          Vision of Judgment. Original Preface.
