  Arose, and it shall set;
While, blazoned as on heaven’s immortal noon,
  The cross leads generations on.

  The golden years return,
The earth doth like a snake renew
  Her winter weeds outworn.

Given or returned. Common as light is love,
And its familiar voice wearies not ever.

As I am now; but those who feel it most
Are happier still. 1

The work of their own hearts, and this must be
Our chastisement or recompense.

Are cradled into poetry by wrong:
They learn in suffering what they teach in song. 2

And weep away the life of care
Which I have borne, and yet must bear.

    Peter was dull; he was at first
  Dull,—oh so dull, so very dull!
Whether he talked, wrote, or rehearsed,
Still with this dulness was he cursed!
  Dull,—beyond all conception, dull.
          Peter Bell the Third. Part vii. xi.
