Dearer than self, possesses or possessed. Stanza M.

And roam along, the world's tired denizen,
With none who bless us, none whom we can bless.

Stanza 8.

There was a sound of revelry by night,

And Belgium's capital had gathered then

Her beauty and her chivalry, and bright

Portion of that around me ; 1 and to me
High mountains are a feeling, but the hum
Of human cities torture.

This quiet sail is as a noiseless wing
To waft me from distraction.

On the ear
Drops the light drip of the suspended oar.

All is concentred in a life intense,
Where not a beam, nor air, nor leaf is lost,
But hath a part of being.

In solitude, where we are least alone.

The sky is changed, — and such a change! O night,
And storm, and darkness, ye are wondrous strong,
Yet lovely in your strength, as is the light
Of a dark eye in woman! Far along,
From peak to peak, the rattling crags among
Leaps the live thunder.
