See how the orient dew
  Shed from the bosom of the morn
    Into the blowing roses

            And in its little globe's extent
              Frames, as it can, its native element.

Ye country comets, that portend
  No war not princes' funeral
    Shining unto no other end

But at my back I always hear
  Time's winged chariot hurrying near.

Had we but world enough, and time,

In the inglorious arts of peace.
