Treasure Island

Samuel Taylor Coleridge

(1772-1834 / Devon / England)

When Hope but made Tranquillity be felt (fragment)


When Hope but made Tranquillity be felt--
A Flight of Hopes for ever on the wing
But made Tranquillity a conscious Thing--
And wheeling round and round in sportive coil
Fann'd the calm air upon the brow of Toil--
