    We meet thee, like a pleasant thought,
When such are wanted.
          To the Daisy.

    The poet’s darling.
          To the Daisy.

    Thou unassuming commonplace
Of Nature.
          To the same Flower.

    Oft on the dappled turf at ease
I sit, and play with similes,
Loose type of things through all degrees.
          To the same Flower.

    Sweet Mercy! to the gates of heaven
This minstrel lead, his sins forgiven;
The rueful conflict, the heart riven
  With vain endeavour,
And memory of Earth’s bitter leaven
  Effaced forever.
          Thoughts suggested on the Banks of the Nith.
4979
    The best of what we do and are,
Just God, forgive!
          Thoughts suggested on the Banks of the Nith.

And battles long ago.

    The music in my heart I bore
Long after it was heard no more.
          The Solitary Reaper.

Its dizzy turbulence eludes the eye,
Frozen by distance.
          Address to Kilchurn Castle.

    A famous man is Robin Hood,
The English ballad-singer’s joy.
          Rob Roy’s Grave.
4985
        Because the good old rule
Sufficeth them,—the simple plan,
That they should take who have the power,
    And they should keep who can.
          Rob Roy’s Grave.
