Description
Poetry

Excerpt
Excerpt: ROUSSEAU - Voltaire - our Gibbon - De Stael - // Leman! these names are worthy of thy shore, // Thy shore of names like these! wert thou no more, // Their memory thy remembrance would recall: // To them thy banks were lovely as to all, // But they have made them lovelier, for the lore // Of mighty minds doth hallow in the core // Of human hearts the ruin of a wall // Where dwelt the wise and wondrous; but by thee // How much more, Lake of Beauty! do we feel, // In sweetly gliding o'er thy crystal sea, // The wild glow of that not ungentle zeal, // Which of the heirs of immortality // Is proud, and makes the breath of glory real!
