Side 270 - The thought of our past years in me doth breed Perpetual benediction: not indeed For that which is most worthy to be blest — Delight and liberty, the simple creed Of Childhood, whether busy or at rest, With new-fledged hope still fluttering in his breast: Not for these I raise The song of thanks and praise; But for those obstinate questionings Of sense and outward...
Side 189 - But yesterday, the word of Caesar might Have stood against the world ; now lies he there, And none so poor to do him reverence.
