    There ’s a bower of roses by Bendemeer’s stream.
          Lalla Rookh. The Veiled Prophet of Khorassan.
5469
    Like the stain’d web that whitens in the sun,
Grow pure by being purely shone upon.
          Lalla Rookh. The Veiled Prophet of Khorassan.

    One morn a Peri at the gate
Of Eden stood disconsolate.
          Paradise and the Peri.
5471
    Take all the pleasures of all the spheres,
And multiply each through endless years,—
One minute of heaven is worth them all.
          Paradise and the Peri.
5472
    But the trail of the serpent is over them all.
          Paradise and the Peri.

    Oh, ever thus, from childhood’s hour,
  I ’ve seen my fondest hopes decay;
I never loved a tree or flower
  But ’t was the first to fade away.

Though turned astray, is sunshine still.
          The Fire-Worshippers.
5477
    Farewell, farewell to thee, Araby’s daughter!
Thus warbled a Peri beneath the dark sea.
          The Fire-Worshippers.
5478
    Alas! how light a cause may move
Dissension between hearts that love!
Hearts that the world in vain had tried,
And sorrow but more closely tied;
That stood the storm when waves were rough,
Yet in a sunny hour fall off,
