Thy soul
Was musical, though jarred by early griefs;
Elastic heavenward, although pressed with care ;
And when its fond solicitudes for all
It loved, were lulld awhile, it rose full fain,
To high and boly musings; following up
The flight of stronger souls, as if nought lack'd
But a new wing, to bear it to the skies :-
Now the new wing is given."
