Page 182 - The power of art without the show. In misery's darkest caverns known, His useful care was ever nigh, Where hopeless anguish pour'd his groan, And lonely want retir'd to die.
Page 1 - Where the howlet mourns in her ivy bower, And tells the midnight moon her care. The winds were laid, the air was still, The stars they shot alang the sky ; The fox was howling on the hill, And the distant echoing glens reply.
Page 182 - No petty gain disdain'd by pride; The modest wants of every day The toil of every day supplied.
