Meditation
 
Thy thoughts to nobler meditations give,
And study how to die, not how to live.
        Geo. Granville (Lord Lansdowne)—Meditations on Death. St. 1.
  1
Happy the heart that keeps its twilight hour,
And, in the depths of heavenly peace reclined,
Loves to commune with thoughts of tender power,—
Thoughts that ascend, like angels beautiful,
A shining Jacob’s-ladder of the mind!
        Paul H. Hayne—Sonnet IX.
  2
In maiden meditation, fancy-free.
        Midsummer Night’s Dream. Act II. Sc. 1. L. 164.
  3
  Divinely bent to meditation;
And in no worldly suits would he be mov’d,
To draw him from his holy exercise.
        Richard III. Act III. Sc. 7. L. 61.
