Now, Lycidas, the shepherds weep no more;
Henceforth thou art the Genius of the shore,
In thy large recompense, and shalt be good
To all that wander in that perilous flood.

HENCE, vain deluding joys,

The brood of folly without father bred,
How little you bestead, advantage, help
Or fill the fixed mind with all your toys?
Dwell in some idle brain,

And fancies fond with gaudy shapes possess,
As thick and numberless

As the gay motes that people the sunbeams,
Or likest hovering dreams

The fickle pensioners of Morpheus' train.

Hail divinest Melancholy,

On the dry smooth-shaven green,
To behold the wandering moon, of
