Página 185 - He that hath found some fledged bird's nest may know At first sight if the bird be flown ; But what fair well or grove he sings in now, That is to him unknown. And yet, as angels in some brighter dreams Call to the soul when man doth sleep, So some strange thoughts transcend our wonted themes, And into glory peep.
Página 152 - To live in grots, and caves, and hate the day Because it shows the way, The way which from this dead and dark abode Leads up to God, A way where you might tread the sun, and be More bright than he.' But as I did their madness so discuss One whispered thus: 'This Ring the Bridegroom did for none provide But for his bride.
