THE VOICE OF THE ANCIENT BARD, FR. SONGS OF EXPERIENCE, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Youth of delight! Come hither
Last Line: And wish to lead others, when they should be led.
Subject(s): Bible; Mythology


Youth of delight! come hither
And see the opening morn,
Image of Truth new-born.
Doubt is fled, and clouds of reason,
Dark disputes and artful teazing.
Folly is an endless maze;
Tangled roots perplex her ways;
How many have fallen there!
They stumble all night over bones of the dead;
And feel -- they know not what but care;
And wish to lead others, when they should be led.
