Love-fancy's ever bright with golden dreams; How like yon sunny landscape glowing 'neath A summer sky, in all its beauteous charms, Where woodland hills, 'gainst the horizon's blue, Stand forth in all varieties of green; While hedge-environ'd fields display a vast Of flowery beauties, in their mingling hues, Bespangling the green pastures, where the kine 'Mid sweet luxuriance graze:--all to the eye Of observation charming--fit to cheer The care-beclouded mind, or grieving heart:--But all such pleasures subject are to change; For, while enraptured with the lovely scene, Foreboding clouds pass over the bright sun, And buries the fair landscape in deep shade; Which casts a reflex influence on the mind
