Where not a beam, nor air, nor leaf is lost,
But hath a part of being.

    The sky is changed,—and such a change! O night
And storm and darkness! ye are wondrous strong,
Yet lovely in your strength, as is the light
Of a dark eye in woman! Far along,
From peak to peak, the rattling crags among,
Leaps the live thunder.

And hiving wisdom with each studious year.

The pleasant place of all festivity,
The revel of the earth, the masque of Italy.

    The thorns which I have reap’d are of the tree
I planted; they have torn me, and I bleed.
I should have known what fruit would spring from such a seed.
