- yet in his eye you traceThe watchfulness of graven years,And tales are in that serious faceOf feelings early steeped in tears-And in that tranquil gazeThere lingers many a thought unsaid -Shadows of other days,Whose hours with shapes of beauty came and fled.And sometimes it is even so -The spirit ripens in the germ,The new sealed fountains overflow,The bright wings tremble in the morn.The soul detects some passing token,Some emblem of a brighter world,And with its shell of clay unbroken,Its shining pinions arc unfurled,And, like a blessed dream,Phantoms, apparelled from the sky,Athwart its vision stream -As if the light of heaven had touched its gifted eye.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
