Overview

Excerpt from The Sixth Work of Original Poems: And the Third Designated the Privilege of Man

The Grand Sylvanic, Prophetic, and Poetic Car; is yet upon its wheels, with strong elastic springs of genius, in truth well set, and moves with more than telegraphic speed, to wend its way from Deity, to man, who has the privilege in time to speak, in audience with his Maker! A word of caution, in sublimity: with earnest true simplicity, decked in the garb of sweet humility; I freely give, to those alone, of whom it has been said, "a word is quite sufficient."

Vast stretch of mind we have, in this our day, if rightly used, would far surpass anterior nobs of ancient date, tho', thanks is due to them, from us, who reap the benefit of light, which shone, in darker ages of the world, nor yet can be removed; the spark then kindled, now hath brighten'd into flame, and may through vigilance, illustrious shine! not as stars in dimness; but as suns immortal! in the blaze of Gospel day I While in the garden we are sat; can view the bud, the blossom, and the rose, with lovely odoriferous fume, expand, and well diffuse its sweet, delicious, and life giving breath! then look upon the fruitful trees, by proper culture brought to yield the best of fruit, for man to cull, and thus regale himself amid the chequer'd, changing scenes of human life, as vast mutations here, (in time,) have good effect, when rightly used, "The Privilege of Man."

In time, and while eternal ages roll, may yet progress; while soaring, thus may reach the highest pinnacle of fame, on earth, embodied all within, through faith in Christ alone, wherein, is famous dignity possess'd, (but not of meritorious right, by man acquir'd) and then, beyond the bounds of time and space, transplanted, where the noblest pitch of honour shall be given, 'mid all the worthies bright, in every age, to soar in high extatic joy, increasing more and more, as endless ages roll, tho' perfect in its own degree, yet never reach the extremity! - Enjoyment is, "The Privilege of Man!"
