Oft have I prov'd the labours of thy love, And the warm efforts of the gentle heart, Anxious to please. Sound was the body, and the soul serene; Like two sweet instruments, ne’er out of tune, That play their several parts.

The Grave (Excerpt) Poem by Robert Blair

from the grave by robert blair

The glad soul Has not a wish uncrown'd. — And cramm’d into a space we blush to name— Proud royalty! At once he lost His glory and his God. Gray's, while also profound, is a little lighter in spirit and a nice way to end an evening of reading about life and death. Sick of his bliss, and bent on new adventures, Evil he needs would try: nor tried in vain. Prone on the lowly grave of the man She drops: while busy meddling memory, In barbarous succession, musters up The past endearments of their softer hours, Tenacious of its theme. Such tales their cheer at wake or gossipping, When it draws near to witching time of night.

Some flee the city, some the hermitage; aims as various, as the they take In thro' life;--the task be mine, To the horrors of the tomb; Th' place of rendezvous, all travellers meet. The new-made widow too, I've sometimes spied, Sad sight! Beauty,—thou pretty plaything, dear deceit! We are proud to offer numerous titles all at incredible prices with worldwide delivery to over 100 countries. My soul, What a strange moment it must be, when near Thy journey's end, thou hast the gulf in view! Schiavonetti from the original inventions of William Blake. How blank thy features, and how wan thy hue! All-noxious thing, Of vilest nature! Still, still she thinks She sees him, and indulging the fond thought, Clings yet more closely to the senseless turf, Nor heeds the passenger who looks that way. According to Blair, in a letter he wrote to Dr.

The Grave, by Robert Blair

from the grave by robert blair

Sicknesses, Of every size and symptom, racking pains, And bluest plagues, are thine! My soul, What a strange moment must it be when, near Thy journey’s end, thou hast the gulf in view! But nor untrod, nor tedious; the fatigue Will soon go off. Here the o'er-loaded slave flings down his burden From his gall'd shoulders;—and when the cruel tyrant, With all his guards and tools of power about him, Is meditating new unheard-of hardships, Mocks his short arm,—and, quick as thought, escapes Where tyrants vex not, and the weary rest. Fold-outs, if any, are not part of the book. O how his eyes stand out, and stare full ghastly! It is the work for which he is primarily renowned. Printed on acid free paper. From stubborn shrubs Thou wrung’st their shy retiring virtues out, And vex’d them in the fire.

Blake's original watercolours for the prints were believed lost, until they were rediscovered in 2003. Nor time, nor death, shall ever part them more! On this side, and on that, men see their friends Drop off, like leaves in autumn; yet launch out Into fantastic schemes, which the long livers In the world's hale and undegenerate days Could scarce have leisure for. The 18th century was a wealth of knowledge, exploration and rapidly growing technology and expanding record-keeping made possible by advances in the printing press. Can nought compound for the first dire offence Of erring man? Son of the morning, whither art thou gone? A fit of common sickness pulls thee down With greater ease than e'er thou didst the stripling That rashly dared thee to the unequal fight.

Unheard-of tortures Must be reserv’d for such: these herd together; The common damn’d shun their society, And look upon themselves as fiends less foul.

Look, how the fair one weeps! What groan was that I heard? See yonder hallow'd fane—the pious work Of names once famed, now dubious or forgot, And buried 'midst the wreck of things which were; There lie interr'd the more illustrious dead. Methinks the countless swarms thou hast devour’d, And thousands that each hour thou gobblest up, This, less than this, might gorge thee to the full. In that dread moment, how the frantic soul Raves round the walls of her clay tenement, Runs to each avenue, and shrieks for help, But shrieks in vain! Nor pleads his rank and birthright.
