"GLAD SIGHT WHEREVER NEW WITH OLD"

          GLAD sight wherever new with old
          Is joined through some dear homeborn tie;
          The life of all that we behold
          Depends upon that mystery.
          Vain is the glory of the sky,
          The beauty vain of field and grove,
          Unless, while with admiring eye
          We gaze, we also learn to love.
                                                              1845.
