For the Visitors' Book at the InnWHO long for rest, who look for pleasureAway from counter, court, or schoolO where live well your lease of leisureBut here at, here at Penmaen Pool?You'll dare the Alp? you'll dart the skiff?--Each sport has here its tackle and tool:Come, plant the staff by Cadair cliff;Come, swing the sculls on Penmaen Pool.What's yonder?--Grizzled Dyphwys dim:The triple-hummocked Giant's stool,Hoar messmate, hobs and nobs with himTo halve the bowl of Penmaen Pool.And all the landscape under survey,At tranquil turns, by nature's rule,Rides repeated topsyturvyIn frank, in fairy Penmaen Pool.And Charles's Wain, the wondrous seven,And sheep-flock clouds like...

The Habit Of Perfection
ELECTED Silence, sing to meAnd beat upon my whorled ear,Pipe me to pastures still and beThe music that I care to hear.Shape nothing, lips; be lovely-dumb:It is the shut, the curfew sentFrom there where all surrenders comeWhich only makes you eloquent.Be shelled, eyes, with double darkAnd find the uncreated light:This ruck and reel which you remarkCoils, keeps, and teases simple sight.Palate, the hutch of tasty lust,Desire not to be rinsed with wine:The can must be so sweet, the crustSo fresh that come in fasts divine!Nostrils, your careless breath that spendUpon the stir and keep of pride,What relish shall the censers sendAlong...

For A Picture Of St. Dorothea
I BEAR a basket lined with grass;I am so light, I am so fair,That men must wonder as I passAnd at the basket that I bear,Where in a newly-drawn green litterSweet flowers I carry,--sweets for bitter.Lilies I shew you, lilies none,None in Caesar's gardens blow,--And a quince in hand,--not oneIs set upon your boughs below;Not set, because their buds not spring;Spring not, 'cause world is wintering.But these were found in the East and SouthWhere Winter is the clime forgot.--The dewdrop on the larkspur's mouthO should it then be quenched not?In starry water-meads they drewThese drops: which be they? stars or dew?Had...
