E'eu in the academic shade:
'Tis poisonous everywhere--but when Part IV.
We first begin to feel we're men; And did I learn from learving ought?
When the quick pulse and eager eye, Oh, yes! I learned to think I thought; The scornful glance, the quick reply, Of learning's tree I cropt the bud,
Proclaim ambition and conceit
Oh! chase the latter thence, or ne'er
And lull e'en genius self to sleep.
The mighty, growing mental grasp, Wakes to its semblance with mankind; Which seems the universe to clasp But broods in darkness silently,
Within its ken---lo! all astray As God's own spirit o'er the sea
The victim rups bis erring way, Mored ere the world of waters knew
Dreaming in all things to excel, Its Lord, or ere a sunbeam flew.
Does all by starts, but nothing well. When Chaos reigned, and all was night, Though he may need no whip or goad, HE spake the word, “ LET THERE BE LICHT!” A racer seldom draws a load The sun uprolled with living ray,
Like a huge cart-horse, strong, though dull, Shedding o'er all a glorious day.
Who tugs with that long, steady pull, Then heard the earth, the air, the sea, Which business and a cart require, His firm, immutable decree;
And hopes of gain or whips inspire: Cbaus no more retained its sway;
So genius spurns the fagging part, Each planet rolled its distant way,
And to the goal would swiftly dart; And yet moves on, and ever will
But life's a road, and not a race, Till he who made them says-" Be still!” And genius yields industry place.
There's but one place in all creation : Yet, when the racer will submit In which disorder keeps its station,
Docile to harness, rein, and bit, Where light is given, but darkness reigns, Nor fret, nor fume, nor start aside, And Chaos yet its sway maintains.
Smooth o'er the road we'swiftly glide: The humau mind alone, of all
So industry and talent might Above, around this mighty ball,
Do wonders, would they but upite. Heeds not the law its God hath given,
But they refuse... So much the worse !
Our reason dawns, and we are proud Cannot be made to go the way
