Let the cold Eremite mid wastes unknown
Declare how sweet is life when spr-tit al&m !
How balm the gale that plays around his cell,
That gale which human voices never swell,
How dear to wander through the entangled
Where human foot ne'er broke the solitude;
And while mankind in woe and error stray,
Cahuy to pass without u care his days.
What and can this, (a stoic's joy nt best)
Suffice to recompense the human breast
For the dear intercourse of social life;
Potent to soothe the bosom's wildest strife?
Can solitude and quiet make amends
For the sweet converse of beloved friends?
Can nature's beauty fill the bounding soul
Formed for society, and friendship's sweet
And oh! when sickness bends the achui"
head How mournful is that unattended bed!
Where the poor pallid sufferer lies him down
And meets the gloomy messenger alone!
At that dread hour when parting life retires,
And half-extinguished burn her fading flies,
How sweet on friendship's pitying breast to
While tender tear-djops gather in her eye;
Hear her soft voice pronounce the words ot
And mark her finger point to worlds above.
Oh! then, if this is bliss to live alone,
Grant that to me it never may be known.
No 'tis not bliss go seek that hermit's
Where solitude and quiet round him dwell,
Where summer sun3 shed soft and genial
And the cool brook runs rippling in the
Oh! you will see beneath that placid smile
Dark discontent lowers on his brow the
And by the sighs that oft his bosom swell
Show that he loves the purled world too well!
Grant him sincere that hating human kind
He here retires to commune with his mind
While in his bosom pleasure springs to birth.
And fond remembrance clings not to the
Oh! 'tis a cold, a dull, contracted soul,
Where mild benevolence has no control!
Ho hates the man, who, glorying in his
Would curse the earth to give himself a
H scorns the miser groping for his pelf,
While yet like them " concentered all in
He loves and worships God, you say what
Can he love God, who hates his fellow men?
That men should in society combine,
And thence draw happiness, was Heaven's
Else with propensities why is man endued
Tending to general happiness and good?
Why throbs the heart, with kindred hearts
Whv life, why joy, but on himself depend?
Wh it is the charm, that boasts the power to
Tis Conversation. What were lofty
What the rich intellect, the feeling heart,
To happiness produce, or ill, control
Without thy aid, Expression of the soul?
This wakes the torpid feelings of the breast
From calm inaction, and ignoble rest,
Brings sparkling wit and fancy into play,
And manly sense and thought's excursive
From mind to mind, while quick reaction
And mutual benefit, and bliss supplies
And hence (as when some force disturbs the
Far o'er the wave extended circles break
Till spreading quite the rullled surface o'er
They lash the billows on the distant shore.)
Hence, by degrees, towns, cities, states
And busy empires, cluster 'ncath the skies!
Or like sweet instruments, whose thrilling
Hangs undiscovered, round each silent wire,
Hut let a skilful hand, one harp awake,
Forth from the rest harmonious numbers
The deep toned music, through wide ether
Rolls through the woods, and swells along
