HERE often, when a child I lay reclined,
I took delight in this locality.
Here stood the infant Ilion of the mind,
And here the Grecian ships did seem to be.
And here again I come, and only find
The drain-cut levels of the marshy lea, --
Gray sea - banks and pale sunsets, -- dreary wind,
Dim shores, dense rains, and heavy-clouded sea!
