LINES FROM A MANUSCRIPT - 1807-8, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: The moon - how definite its orb
Last Line: In which it towers, infinite in height/ --


The moon -- how definite its orb!
Yet gaze again & with a steady gaze
'Tis there indeed -- but where is it not --
It is suffused o'er all the sapphire Heaven,
Trees, herbage, snake-like Stream, unwrinkled Lake,
Whose very murmur does of it partake/
And low & close the broad smooth mountain
Is more a thing of Heaven than when
Distinct by one dim shade
yet undivided from the universal cloud
In which it towers, infinite in height/ --
