Excerpt from Poems

As mind of plastic mould we often view,
Of swift mobility of temperament,
In opposite extremes its course pursue! -
Yet in this giddy whirl of sentiment
(Fine as the film, whose being the dropped dew
Alone revealed, its surface which besprent)
A vestige dwells, unseen of human eye
Inly betraying its identity.

In such mind, absent friends, and absent things,
Having forgotten, as a hue, a scent,
A sound, may touch upon those finer strings
Which call these objects from their banishment;
So thou, fair plant, when towards thee mine eye flings
Its sudden glance (thought all things else prevent
Feelings, whence this scene might the past restore)
Canst call up visions dear to me of yore.

Oh, never say to him who has a heart; -
Oh, never say to him who has a sense,
Imagination, of the joys which dart,
From unseen source, beneath thy influence; -
