POET'S REVERIE.

We poets in our youth begin in gladness,
But thereof comes in the end Despondency and Madness.

Wordsworth.

'Tis not, as heads that never ache suppose,
Forgery of fancy and a dream of woes.
Man is a harp, whose chords elude the sight,
Each tuned to harmony disposed aright;
The screws reversed, a task, which, if he please,
God, in a moment, executes with ease,
Ten thousand thousand strings at once go loose,
Lort, till be tune them, all their power and use.

Cowper.
