(From Invocation)

NOT only for the Bard of highest worth,
            But best of men,
Do I invoke ye, Powers of Heaven and Earth!
            O, where and when
Shall we again behold his counterpart,—        5
Such kindred excellence of head and heart?
 
So good and great,—benevolent as wise,—
            On his high throne
How meekly hath he borne his faculties!
            How finely shown        10
A model to the irritable race,
Of generous kindness, courtesy, and grace!
