Where storm after storm rises dark o’er the way.
          I would not live alway.

    That heavenly music! what is it I hear?
The notes of the harpers ring sweet in mine ear.
And, see, soft unfolding those portals of gold,
The King all arrayed in his beauty behold!
          I would not live alway.
 
William Motherwell. (1797–1835)

    I ’ve wandered east, I ’ve wandered west,
  Through mony a weary way;
But never, never can forget
  The luve o’ life’s young day!

    ’T was then we luvit ilk ither weel,
  ’T was then we twa did part:
Sweet time—sad time! twa bairns at scule—
  Twa bairns and but ae heart. 1

    And we, with Nature’s heart in tune,
  Concerted harmonies.

    Mournfully, oh, mournfully,
  The midnight wind doth sigh,
Like some sweet plaintive melody
  Of ages long gone by.
          The Midnight Wind.
