第278页 - BARD, Who, nobly conscious of his just reward, With loftier soul, and undecaying might, Paints what he feels, in characters of light. He turns : and, instantaneous, all around, Cliffs whiten, waters murmur, voices sound; Portentous forms in heaven's aerial hall Appear, as at some great supernal call.
