Then tell me not that I shall grow

Forlorn, that fields and woods will cloy ;
From Nature and her changes flow

An everlasting tide of joy.
I grant that summer heats will burn,

That keen will come the frosty night;
But both shall please : and each in turn

Yield reason's most supreme delight. Build me a shrine, and I could kneel

To rural gods, or prostrate fall; Did I not see, did I not feel,

That one GREAT SPIRIT governs all. O Heaven permit that I may lie

Where o'er my corse green branches wave; And those who from life's tumult fly

With kindred feelings press my grave.
