Earth's loneliest bounds, and Ocean's wildest shore.“

What viewless forms th' Æolian organ play, And sweep the furrow'd lines of anxious thought away!Angel of life! thy glittering wings explore Earth's loneliest bounds, and Ocean's wildest shore.</p Part I, lines 45 - 54

The darkening world, and tempest-troubled deep!“

And, when its short and sullen noon is o'er, The ice-chained waters slumbering on the shore, How bright the fagots in his little hall Blaze on the hearth, and warm the pictured wall! Part II, line 115–124

O'er mountain, tower, and town“

Heaven still rebuilds thy span,
Nor lets the type grow pale with age
That first spoke peace to man.“

Was woven in the sky.“
