All is, if have grace to use it so, 
And ever in my great task master's eye".
(iii) "And in thy voice I catch
The language of my former heart, and read
My former pleasures in the shooting lights
Of thy wild eyes". 
(iv) "Who hath not seen thee oft amid the store? 
Sometimes whoever seeks abroad may find
Thee sitting careless on a granary floor."

The bravest would have by for friend, 
The memory that he closes the life."

O thou soul of my soul! I shall clasp thee again.
And with God be the rest!"
