Excerpt from Dream and Story, Vol. 1 of 2 Far on ahead, outstretched that open sea, And o'er its farthest bound there brightly gleamedA canopy of light, thereby to blaze the goalOf all desire, the Mansions of the Blest; -While I, too prone to seek from duty, rest, Did drift upon the waters silently! Some muttering thunders in the distance farGave note of trials unrevealed, in store, Unless I nerved my soul to effort greatTheir threatening ills to face and conquer;And deepening shadows warned me wellThat drifting only, on a placid sea, Was not to bear me onward by the wayThat reached the promised Mansions of the Blest! My voice broke forth in loud and hot complaint, That "ceaseless struggle marked the certain fateOf all who ever made that journey safe," -And in the wilful passion of my soulI cried for "solid earth to stand upon,"Without the toils and perils of the sea;And as I keenly searched the thickening airI thought I caught some glimpse of kindly shore, Which, close at hand, stretched out its length beyond -To lead by even, easy course, direct, Where shimmered still the burnished clouds of goldThat over-capped, in distance far away, Those glorious mansions of enduring bliss!
