Сторінка 7 - Nor rural sights alone, but rural sounds, Exhilarate the spirit, and restore The tone of languid Nature.— Mighty winds, That sweep the skirt of some far-spreading wood Of ancient growth, make music not unlike The dash of ocean on his winding shore, And lull the spirit, while they fill the mind ; Unnumbered branches waving in the blast, And all their leaves fast fluttering, all at once.

Nature inanimate employs sweet sounds, But animated nature sweeter still, To soothe and satisfy the human ear.
Сторінка 6 - The sloping land recedes into the clouds; Displaying on its varied side the grace Of hedge-row beauties numberless, square tower, Tall spire, from which the sound of cheerful bells Just undulates upon the listening ear; Groves, heaths, and smoking villages remote.
