FAME, wisdom, love, and power were mine,
My goblets blush'd from every vine,
I sunn'd my heart in beauty's eyes,
I strive to number o'er what days
Remembrance can discover,
Which all that life or earth displays
There rose no day, there roll'd no hour Of pleasure unembittered;
And not a trapping deck'd my power That gall'd not while it glittered.
The serpent of the field, by art !
And spells, is won from harming; But that which coils around the heart, Oh! who hath power of charming?
It will not list to wisdom's lore,
WHEN COLDNESS WRAPS THIS SUFFERING CLAY,
Ah, whither strays the immortal mind?
By steps each planet's heavenly way?
Or fill at once the realms of space,
A thing of eyes, that all survey?
Eternal, boundless, undecay'd,
dagieng the csvil at A thought unseen, but seeing all,
All, all in earth, or skies display'd,
Shall it survey, shall it recal:
Each fainter trace that memory holds
So darkly of departed years, o z In one broad glance the soul beholds,
And all, that was, at once appears.
Before Creation peopled earth,
shall roll through chaos back;
And where the furthest heaven had birth,'
The spirit trace its rising track.
And where the future mars or makes,
Its glance dilate o'er all to be,
While sun is quench'd or system breaks,
Fix'd in its own eternity.
Above or Love, Hope, Hate, or Fear,
years as moments shall endure.
