„Drink ye to her that each loves best!“

—  Thomas Campbell

Drink ye to Her

We will not ask her name.

„Cease, every joy, to glimmer on my mind,
But leave, oh! leave the light of Hope behind!“

—  Thomas Campbell

Part II, line 375
Pleasures of Hope (1799)
Contesto: Cease, every joy, to glimmer on my mind,
But leave, oh! leave the light of Hope behind!
What though my wingèd hours of bliss have been
Like angels visits, few and far between.

„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.“

—  Thomas Campbell

Theodric : A Domestic Tale; and Other Poems (1825), To the Rainbow
Contesto: 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

„Let Winter come! let polar spirits sweep
The darkening world, and tempest-troubled deep!“

—  Thomas Campbell

Part II, line 115–124
Pleasures of Hope (1799)
Contesto: Let Winter come! let polar spirits sweep
The darkening world, and tempest-troubled deep!
Though boundless snows the withered heath deform,
And the dim sun scarce wanders through the storm,
Yet shall the smile of social love repay,
With mental light, the melancholy day!
And, when its short and sullen noon is o'er,
The ice-chained waters slumbering on the shore,
How bright the fagots in his little hall
Blaze on the hearth, and warm the pictured wall!

„Methinks, thy jubilee to keep,
The first-made anthem rang
On earth deliver'd from the deep,
And the first poet sang.“

—  Thomas Campbell

Theodric : A Domestic Tale; and Other Poems (1825), To the Rainbow
Contesto: p>Methinks, thy jubilee to keep,
The first-made anthem rang
On earth deliver'd from the deep,
And the first poet sang.Nor ever shall the Muse's eye
Unraptured greet thy beam:
Theme of primeval prophecy,
Be still the poet's theme!</p

„Nor ever shall the Muse's eye
Unraptured greet thy beam:
Theme of primeval prophecy,
Be still the poet's theme!“

—  Thomas Campbell

Theodric : A Domestic Tale; and Other Poems (1825), To the Rainbow
Contesto: p>Methinks, thy jubilee to keep,
The first-made anthem rang
On earth deliver'd from the deep,
And the first poet sang.Nor ever shall the Muse's eye
Unraptured greet thy beam:
Theme of primeval prophecy,
Be still the poet's theme!</p

„How glorious is thy girdle cast

—  Thomas Campbell

Theodric : A Domestic Tale; and Other Poems (1825), To the Rainbow
Contesto: 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

„On the green banks of Shannon, when Sheelah was nigh,
No blithe Irish lad was so happy as I“

—  Thomas Campbell

The Harper, st. 1 (1799)
Contesto: On the green banks of Shannon, when Sheelah was nigh,
No blithe Irish lad was so happy as I;
No harp like my own could so cheerily play,
And wherever I went was my poor dog Tray.

„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.“

—  Thomas Campbell

Theodric : A Domestic Tale; and Other Poems (1825), To the Rainbow
Contesto: p>Can all that optics teach, unfold
Thy form to please me so,
As when I dreamt of gems and gold
Hid in thy radiant bow?When Science from Creation's face
Enchantment's veil withdraws,
What lovely visions yield their place
To cold material laws! 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

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

—  Thomas Campbell

Part I, lines 45 - 54
Pleasures of Hope (1799)
Contesto: 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

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

—  Thomas Campbell

Part I, lines 14 - 21
Pleasures of Hope (1799)
Contesto: p>What potent spirit guides the raptur'd eye
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

„Lochiel, Lochiel, beware of the day!
For, dark and despairing, my sight I may seal,
But man cannot cover what God would reveal:
'Tis the sunset of life gives me mystical lore,
And coming events cast their shadows before.“

—  Thomas Campbell

Lochiel's Warning http://oldpoetry.com/opoem/48723 (1802), a poem regarding "Gentle Lochiel", Donald Cameron of Lochiel, and the final defeat of his forces and other Jacobites at the Battle of Culloden, in which he was badly wounded.

„With thee, sweet Hope! resides the heav'nly light,
That pours remotest rapture on the sight“

—  Thomas Campbell

Part I, lines 22 - 25
Pleasures of Hope (1799)
Contesto: With thee, sweet Hope! resides the heav'nly light,
That pours remotest rapture on the sight:
Thine is the charm of life's bewilder'd way.
That calls each slumb'ring passion into play.

„The combat deepens. On, ye brave,
Who rush to glory or the grave!“

—  Thomas Campbell

Hohenlinden http://www.poemhunter.com/p/m/poem.asp?poet=3042&poem=13489, st. 7 (1802)
Contesto: The combat deepens. On, ye brave,
Who rush to glory or the grave!
Wave, Munich! all thy banners wave,
And charge with all thy chivalry!

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

—  Thomas Campbell

</p><p>Still seem, as to my childhood's sight,
A midway station given,
For happy spirits to alight,
Betwixt the earth and heaven.</p>
