|O haste to shed the sovereign balm|
My shattered nerves new string:
And for my guest serenely calm,
The nymph Indifference bring.

|How calm, how beautiful comes on|
The stilly hour, when storms are gone!
When warring winds have died away,
And clouds, beneath the glancing ray,
Melt off, and leave the land and sea
Sleeping in bright tranquillity!

|Tis Noon;a calm, unbroken sleep|
Is on the blue waves of the deep;
A soft haze, like a fairy dream,
Is floating over wood and stream;
And many a broad magnolia flower,
Within its shadowy woodland bower,
Is gleaming like a lovely star.
