  • 1Most sweet it is with unuplifted eyes
  • 2To pace the ground, if path be there or none,
  • pg 553While a fair region round the traveller lies
  • 4Which he forbears again to look upon;
  • 5Pleased rather with some soft ideal scene,
  • 6The work of Fancy, or some happy tone
  • 7Of meditation, slipping in between
  • 8The beauty coming and the beauty gone.
  • 9If Thought and Love desert us, from that day
  • 10Let us break off all commerce with the Muse:
  • 11With Thought and Love companions of our way,
  • 12Whate'er the senses take or may refuse,
  • 13The Mind's internal heaven shall shed her dews,
  • 14Of inspiration on the humblest lay.
