    Childhood

    I cannot reach it; and my striving eye
    Dazzles at it, as at eternity.
    Were now that chronicle alive,
    Those white designs which children drive,
    And the thoughts of each harmless hour,
    With their content, too, in my power,
    Quickly would I make my path even,
    And by mere playing go to heaven.

    Why should men love
    A wolf more than a lamb or dove?
    Or choose hell-fire and brimstone streams
    Before bright stars and God's own beams?
    Who kisseth thorns will hurt his face,
    But flowers do both refresh and grace,
    And sweetly living - fie on men! -
    Are, when dead, medicinal then;
    If seeing much should make staid eyes,
    And long experience should make wise,
    Since all that age doth teach is ill,
    Why should I not love childhood still?
    Why, if I see a rock or shelf,
    Shall I from thence cast down myself?
    Or by complying with the world,
    From the same precipice be hurled?
    Those observations are but foul
    Which make me wise to lose my soul.

    And yet the practice worldlings call
    Business, and weighty action all,
    Checking the poor child for his play,
    But gravely cast themselves away.

    Dear, harmless age! the short, swift span
    Where weeping Virtue parts with man;
    Where love without lust dwells, and bends
    What way we please without self-ends.

    An age of mysteries! which he
    Must live twice that would God's face see;
    Which angels guard, and with it play,
    Angels! which foul men drive away.

    How do I study now, and scan
    Thee more than e'er I studied man,
    And only see through a long night
    Thy edges and thy bordering light!
    Oh for thy center and midday!
    For sure that is the narrow way! read more »

    A Prayer For My Daughter

    ONCE more the storm is howling, and half hid
    Under this cradle-hood and coverlid
    My child sleeps on. There is no obstacle
    But Gregory's wood and one bare hill
    Whereby the haystack- and roof-levelling wind. read more »
