Not illustrated. 1874 edition. Excerpt: ...better thou shouldst weep a little now Than wait and die of grief." Oh, push away The bending horror! Rather let us die, If love be all our grief, than stretch afar A life of coldness! For who would live on Beyond his greatest loss? Oh, this deserted air, Impure since one loved spirit ceased to give All sweetness, would be rank with thick'ning ills! What balm could we accept? What place to us Would be not desert? Oh, how cursed the hour Which threw division as our lot; which took So much in stealing all we cared to have, So little, leaving us and woe behind, j Pass'd into gloom through parting, its sad door! These thoughts are doubting tears which should not flow When Hope, that sweet evaporator 's nigh. Hope deals with outlines, building amidst light With thoughts which make it brighter. Oh, give aid! And be enshrined in this, and day by day A blissful dwelling will thy fancy make. Leave Love's sweet ministers, looks, sighs, which fill Its breathing time of song their service still. They make the gentle power by which happiness Draws us from other things. Thus are we form'd, If earlier than we wish, more fit for Heav'n. Night creeps on tiptoe to the world and pours Her Heav'n-distilled drug into the brain, By Silence, her smooth hand, administ'ring, Until we float away from earthliness, Sailing amidst its memories. Yet now All missionless she draws to AsphodeL For nearer as she comes she but unfolds A festival to more brightness. Scarcely dropt The sun from it the sky is half a flow'r Which groweth lighter towards its heart, the west. And o'er the bay come songs on Silence flung, Sinking away too soon, like blossoms cast On a deep sea. And 'ga.inst their joyousness more
