Sweet Memory! wafted by thy gentle gale,
Oft up the stream of Time I turn my sail.

Think nothing done while aught remains to do.

Human Life (1819)

She was good as she was fair,
None–none on earth above her!
As pure in thought as angels are:
To know her was to love her.

Jacqueline. Stanza 1.

The good are better made by ill,
As odours crushed are sweeter still.

Jacqueline. Stanza 3.

A guardian angel o’er his life presiding,
Doubling his pleasures, and his cares dividing.

Fireside happiness, to hours of ease
Blest with that charm, the certainty to please.
