Contents note: 1. "Come said the Muse, Sing me a song no poet yet has chanted, Sing me the universal." -- 2. "Soothing each lull a strain is heard, just heard, From some far shore the final chorus sounding." -- 3. "Over the mountain-growths disease and sorrow, An uncaught bird is hovering, hovering, High in the purer, happier air." -- 4. "From imperfection's murkiest cloud, Darts always forth one ray of perfect light, One flash of heaven's glory." -- 5. "And all the world a dream.".
