Vanish Away

Vanish Away

1 min 206 1 min 206

Moist, bright, and green, the landscape laughs around.

Full swell the woods; their every music wakes,

Mix’d in wild concert, with the warbling brooks

Increased, the distant bleatings of the hills,

And hollow lows responsive from the vales,

Whence, blending all, the sweeten’d zephyr springs.


Meantime, refracted from yon eastern cloud,

Bestriding earth, the grand ethereal bow

Shoots up immense; and every hue unfolds,

In fair proportion running from the red

To where the violet fades into the sky.


Here, awful Newton, the dissolving clouds

Form, fronting on the sun, thy showery prism;

And to the sage-instructed eye unfold

The various twine of light, by thee disclosed

From the white mingling maze. Not so the boy;

He wondering views the bright enchantment bend,

Delightful, o’er the radiant fields, and runs

To catch the falling glory; but amazed

Beholds th’ amusive arch before him fly,

Then vanish quite away.
