Of an eye where feeling plays
In ten thousand dewy rays:
A face o’er which a thousand shadows go!
          The Triad.

That no philosophy can lift.

    Myriads of daisies have shone forth in flower
Near the lark’s nest, and in their natural hour
Have passed away; less happy than the one
That by the unwilling ploughshare died to prove
The tender charm of poetry and love.

The daisy, by the shadow that it casts,
Protects the lingering dewdrop from the sun.

    Since every mortal power of Coleridge
Was frozen at its marvellous source,
The rapt one, of the godlike forehead,
The heaven-eyed creature sleeps in earth:
And Lamb, the frolic and the gentle,
Has vanished from his lonely hearth.
          Extempore Effusion upon the Death of James Hogg.
5108
    How fast has brother followed brother,
From sunshine to the sunless land!
          Extempore Effusion upon the Death of James Hogg.
5109
    Those old credulities, to Nature dear,
Shall they no longer bloom upon the stock
Of history?
          Memorials of a Tour in Italy. iv.
