SONNET ON MOOR PARK: WRITTEN AT PARIS, MAY 10, 1825, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Stern, unexpecting good, unbent by wrong
Last Line: Its naked strength o'er death will triumph still!
Subject(s): Perseverance


STERN, unexpecting good, unbent by wrong,
I travel onward through this gloomy scene,
With brow of sorrow, yet erect in mien;
Meek to the humble, in defiance strong,
To folly's, envy's, hatred's, falsehood's throng:
Yet knowing that the birth and grave between
There ever will, as ever there have been,
Be friendships fickle, warfares deep and long!
If I have taught the truths of wisdom's lore,
If I have drawn the secrets of the heart,
And raised the glow that mounts o'er grief and ill --
In my plain verse though bloom no single flower,
And not a ray of wit its lustre dart,
Its naked strength o'er death will triumph still!
