    Ah, who can tell how hard it is to climb
The steep where Fame’s proud temple shines afar?

    Mine be the breezy hill that skirts the down,
Where a green grassy turf is all I crave,
With here and there a violet bestrewn,
Fast by a brook or fountain’s murmuring wave;
And many an evening sun shine sweetly on my grave!
          The Minstrel. Book ii. Stanza 17.

And mortals the sweets of forgetfulness prove,
When naught but the torrent is heard on the hill,
And naught but the nightingale’s song in the grove.

Oh when shall it dawn on the night of the grave?
          The Hermit.

    By the glare of false science betray’d,
That leads to bewilder, and dazzles to blind.
          The Hermit.
4593
    And beauty immortal awakes from the tomb.
          The Hermit.
