That pours remotest rapture on the sight“

And the first poet sang.“

„Angel of life! thy glittering wings explore
Earth's loneliest bounds, and Ocean's wildest shore.“

— Thomas Campbell
Context: p>Auspicious Hope! in thy sweet garden grow Wreaths for each toil, a charm for every woe: Won by their sweets, in nature's languid hour, The way-worn pilgrim seeks thy summer bower;There, as the wild bee murmurs on the wing, What peaceful dreams thy handmaid spirits bring! What viewless forms th' Æolian organ play, And sweep the furrow'd lines of anxious thought away!Angel of life! thy glittering wings explore Earth's loneliest bounds, and Ocean's wildest shore.</p Part I, lines 45 - 54

„How glorious is thy girdle cast
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.“

Context: p>Triumphal arch, that fill'st the sky When storms prepare to part, I ask not proud Philosophy To teach me what thou art. — Still seem, as to my childhood's sight, A midway station given, For happy spirits to alight, Betwixt the earth and heaven.</p

„What potent spirit guides the raptur'd eye
To pierce the shades of dim futurity?“
