The Last Man

All worldly shapes shall melt in gloom, The Sun himself must die,
Before this mortal shall assume Its Immortality
I saw a vision in my sleep That gave my spirit strength to sweep Adown the gulf of Time
I saw the last of human mould,...

The Exile Of Erin

There came to the beach a poor Exile of Erin,    The dew on his thin robe was heavy and chill:
For his country he sign'd, when at twilight
To wander alone by the wind-beaten hill
But the day-star attracted his eye's sad devotion,

Hope Triumphant in Death

Unfading Hope
when life's last embers burn —When soul to soul, and dust to dust return,
Heaven to thy charge resigns the awful hour

Hope

At summer eve, when heaven's aerial
Spans with bright arch the glittering hills below,
Why to yon mountain turns the musing eye,
Whose sunbright summit mingles with the sky

Although the wild-flower on thy ruin'd wall,

The River of Life

The more we live, more brief
Our life's succeeding stages;
A day to childhood seems a year,
And years like passing ages

The Soldiers Dream

Our bugles sang truce; for the night-cloud had lowered,
And the sentinel stars set their watch in the sky;
And thousands had sunk on the ground overpowered,
The weary to sleep, and the wounded to die

Song to the Evening Star

Star that bringest home the bee, And sett'st the weary labourer free
If any star shed peace, 'tis thou, That send'st it from above, Appearing when Heaven's breath and brow Are sweet as hers we love
Come to the luxuriant skies Whilst the ...

Ode to Winter

When first the fiery-mantled sun His heavenly race begun to run;
Round the earth and ocean blue,
His children four the Seasons flew
First, in green apparel dancing,   The young Spring smiled with angel grace;
