Subject(s): Poetry & Poets


HIGH name of poet! -- sought in every age
By thousands -- scarcely won by two or three, --
As with the thorns of this sad pilgrimage
My bleeding feet are doom'd their war to wage,
With awful worship I have bow'd to thee!
And yet perchance it is not fate's decree,
This mighty boon should be assign'd to me,
My heart's consuming fever to assuage. --
Fountain of Poesy! that liest deep
Within the bosom's innermost recesses,
And rarely burstest forth to human ear,
Break out! -- and, while profoundly magic sleep
With pierceless veil all outward form oppresses,
Let me the music of thy murmurs hear.
