DEDICATIONS AND INSCRIPTIONS: 8. BEAM-VERSES AT WELL KNOWE, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: This land was once the northmen's rest
Last Line: Shall help the outworn world to change.


THIS land was once the Northmen's rest,
And here the Virgin's house was blest
With a sweet peace through lost years wrought:
O, in these weary years of nought,
May we who now this hearth-fire light
Learn somewhat of that old delight,
Which, cherished in this drowsy grange,
Shall help the outworn world to change.
