To pierce the shades of dim futurity?“

Can Wisdom lend, with all her heav'nly pow'r, The pledge of Joy's anticipated hour?Ah, no! she darkly sees the fate of man— Her dim horizon bounded to a span; Or, if she hold an image to the view, Tis nature pictur'd too severely true.</p Part I, lines 14 - 21

O'er mountain, tower, and town“

—  Thomas Campbell
Context: p>How glorious is thy girdle cast O'er mountain, tower, and town, Or mirror'd in the ocean vast, A thousand fathoms down! As fresh in yon horizon dark, As young thy beauties seem, As when the eagle from the ark First sported in thy beam.For, faithful to its sacred page, Heaven still rebuilds thy span, Nor lets the type grow pale with age That first spoke peace to man.</p

„Triumphal arch, that fill'st the sky
When storms prepare to part,
I ask not proud Philosophy
To teach me what thou art.“

But leave, oh! leave the light of Hope behind!“

No blithe Irish lad was so happy as I“

But words of the Most High,
Have told why first thy robe of beams
Was woven in the sky.“

And yet, fair bow, no fabling dreams, But words of the Most High, Have told why first thy robe of beams Was woven in the sky.</p
