        Gray—Hymn. Adversity. Sc. 3.
No blessed leisure for Love or Hope,
But only time for Grief.

            Retired Leisure,
That in trim gardens takes his pleasure.
        MiltonIl Penseroso. L. 49.
Mend when thou canst; be better at thy leisure.
        King Lear. Act II. Sc. 4. L. 232.
Leisure is pain; take off our chariot wheels,
How heavily we drag the load of life!
Blest leisure is our curse; like that of Cain,
It makes us wander, wander earth around
To fly that tyrant, thought.
        Young—Night Thoughts. Night II. L. 125.
