1
    Within the sober realm of leafless trees,
  The russet year inhaled the dreamy air;
Like some tanned reaper, in his hour of ease,
  When all the fields are lying brown and bare.
          The closing Scene. Sc. i.
2
    My soul to-day
Is far away
Sailing the Vesuvian Bay.
          Drifting.
3
    With dreamful eyes
My spirit lies
Under the walls of Paradise.
          Drifting.
4
    Yon deep bark goes
Where Traffic blows
From lands of sun to lands of snows;—
  Yon happier one,
  Its course is run
From lands of snow to lands of sun.
          Drifting.
5
    We bring roses, beautiful fresh roses,
Dewy as the morning and colored like the dawn.
          The new pastoral Book.
6
    O Night! most beautiful and rare!
  Thou givest the heavens their holiest hue,
And through the azure fields of air
  Bring’st down the gentle dew.
          Night.
7
    The terrible rumble, grumble and roar
Telling the battle was on once more—
And Sheridan twenty miles away!
          Sheridan’s Ride.
