Thomas Campbell Quote
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.
Part I, lines 45 - 54 - Pleasures of Hope (1799)
