When all secure from summers ardent rays We mused upon the shrill cicalas lyre Thrilling the drowsy woodland with its lays; Or turning gazed across the pulsing bay Whereover Phcebus shook the fires of day, And marked the merry sails go on agleam Down to the world that far beyond us lay. A little souvenir of summer days, A gleam late stolen from the ancient blaze; If for an hour it light some dim heart-fane, Thou art the inspiration, thine the praise.
