A Collection of English Poems, 1660-1800

By Ronald S. Crane | Go to book overview

Indignant fury flash'd from Tancred's eye--

'Ye vile corruptors of my youth, 180
'Ye foes to honour, honesty, and truth,
'Hence from my sight, nor offer a reply:
'If the third day
'Within the limits of this state
'Disclose your stay, 185
'Not e'en Almida's self shall save you from your fate.

'Go, brave Abdalla, to your native shore;
'From sloth, from vice, from infamy,
'Your kind instructions and assistance

'Have haply set me free; 190
'Thanks for your visit, pray return no more,
'Let us be always friends, but at a distance.

'And now, my better angel, whose kind care
'The mists of error from my sight dispell'd,

'Burst the vile fetters that my reason held, 195
'Restor'd fair wisdom's gentle sway,
'Guided my steps to her, and pointed out the way;
'Now, while my people's eager voice,
'And Raymond too confirms my choice,
'O come, my heavenly fair! 200
'Ascend, adorn, and bless my throne;
'Still with that cheering influence preside,
'My life, my future conduct, guide,
'Inspire my raptur'd heart, and make it virtuous as your own.'


WILLIAM COWPER

Walking With God. Gen. v. 24

OH! for a closer walk with GOD,
A calm and heav'nly frame;
A light to shine upon the road
That leads me to the Lamb!
