The untaught harmony of spring :

While, whisp’ring pleasure as they fly,

Cool Zephyrs thro’the clear blue sky

Their gather'd fragrance fling,

Where'er the oak's thick branches stretch

A broader browner shade;

Where'er the rude and moss-grown beech

O’er-canopies the glade ?,

[blocks in formation]

And float amid the liquid noon :

Some lightly o'er the current skim,

Some shew their gayly-gilded trim

Quick-glancing to the sun.

To Contemplation's sober eye a

Such is the race of Man :

And they that creep, and they that fly,

Shall end where they began.
