Are melted into air, into thin air; And, like the baseless fabric of this

vision, The cloud-capped towers, the gor

geous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe

itself, Yea, all which it inherits, shall dis

solve,

And, like this insubstantial pageant

faded, Leave not a rack behind: we are such

stuff As dreams are made of, and our little

life Is rounded with a sleep.

Tempest, act. iv. sc. 4.

All things that are .
All thoughts, all passions, all delights..
Along a river-sille, I know not where
A man prepared against all ills to come
A man there came, whence none could tell .
Amazed, confised, its fate unknown.
A mist was alriving low the British Channel

And here the hermit sat and told his beads
And I shall sleep, and on thy side . . .
Anon bis far recomling path .
Anpassing here through evening dew . .
And sooth to say, yon vocal grove
And whither would you lend me? .
An empty sky, a work of heather
Appeared the princess with that mer
Art is long and time is fleeting.
A shadie grove not far away they spied.
A heaven and earth are fairer ,

Awake, awake, my lrre.
Away, ye gay landscapes
A weary lot is thine, fair maid
