>From the Castle in the Air,
To the Little Corner of the World

In the region of clouds, where the whirlwinds arise,
My castle of fancy was built;
The turrets reflected the blue from the skies,
And the windows with sunbeams were gilt.
The rainbow sometimes, in its beautiful state,
Enamel'd the mansion around;
And the figures that fancy in clouds can create,
Supplied me with gardens and ground.
I had grottoes, and fountains, and orange tree groves,
I had all that enchantment has told;
I had sweet shady walks, for the Gods and their - Loves,
I had mountains of coral and gold.

But a storm that I felt not, had risen and roll'ds
While wrapp'd in a slumber I lay;
And when I look'd out in the morning, behold
My Castle was carried away.

It pass'd over rivers, and valleys, and groves,
The world it was all in my view;
I thought of my friends, of their fates, of their loves,
And often, full often of You.

At length it came over a beautiful scene,
That nature in silence had made;
The place was but small, but 'twas sweetly serene
And checkered with sunshine and shade.

I gazed and I envied with painful goodwill,
And grew tired of my seat in the air;
When all of a sudden my Castle stood still,
As if some attraction was there.

Like a lark from the sky it came fluttering down,
And placed me exactly in view,
When whom should I meet in this charming retreat,
This corner of calmness, but You.

Delighted to find you in honor and ease,
I felt no more sorrow, nor pain;
But the wind coming fair, I ascended the breeze,
And went back with my Castle again.

"Wagging tails alone
Where she left them were little sheep;
Lost Bopeep doesn't know
And has behind her them tails wagging;
Home come, and she'll find them."

"The cat will mew and dog will have his day.
I had rather be a dog, and bay the moon,
As maids of thirteen do of puppy-dogs ~ !

You, of the Roman disciplines, sadder than is a puppy-dog,
The time when screech-owls cry and ban-dogs howl,
Go get thee hence, and find my dog again ~ !"

"Most maculate thoughts, master, are masked under
Honesty; my mask, to defend my beauty; and you, too,
Join'd with a masker and a reveller ~ !

If some suspect of ill mask'd not thy show,
For revels, dances, masks and merry hours,
Fair ladies mask'd are roses in their bud."
