We talk the battle over and share the battle's spoil.

Seemed a complex Chinese toy
Fashioned for a barefoot boy.

I hear thee and rejoice:

O cuckoo! shall I call thee bird?
Or but a wandering voice?

20. Thou, child of joy,

Shout round me; let me hear thy shouts,
Thou happy shepherd boy!

21. A paradise of vaulted bowers, Lit by downward gazing flowers.


22. Till like one in slumber bound,
Borne to ocean, I float down, around,
Into a sea profound of everlasting sound.



23. Let the loud trumpet sound,

Till the rocks all around

The shrill echoes rebound.

24. It shouted through the belfrey tower "Awake, O bell! proclaim the hour."

25. Nothing is lost in this world of ours; Honey comes from the idle flowers.


26. Our clocks are the flowers; and they count the hours Till we can mellow in sun and showers.

27. From winding glen, from upland brown,

They poured each hardy tenant down.


28. I have breathed on the South and the chestnut


By the thousands have burst from the forest bowers.

29. Cur hearts, our hopes are all with thee:


Our hearts, our hopes, our prayers, our tears,

Our faith triumphant o'er our fears,

Are all with thee, are all with thee.
