vain shalt thou, or any, call
The spirits from their golden day,
Except, like them, thou too canst say,
My spirit is at peace with all.
haunt the silence of the breast,
Imaginations calm and fair,
The memory like a cloudless air,
The conscience as a sea at rest:
when the heart is full of din,
And doubt beside the portal waits,
They can but listen at the gates,
And hear the household jar within.
