Till palace, tower, and wall,
And ruin cover'd all.
Who art thou, stern destroyer ? say
“ I'm known in every climeMan and his works all pass away, Beneath the hand of TIME.”
Is ranging high and low,
To let slip on buck or doe.
How tempting to bestride!
With rocks on either side.
A name which it took of yore;
And shall a thousand more.  Bolton Priory-a celebrated Abbey, now in ruins, romantically situated on the banks of the Wharf, in Yorkshire.
 Leash-a leathern thong.
And hither is young Romilly come,
And what may now forbid
Shall bound across the Strid ?
He sprang in glee-for what cared he,
And checked him in his leap! The boy is in the arms of Wharf!

That dimm'd my eyes before.
I could not speak to thee;
But now, on angel's wing,

Because our souls were dear. Weep not that I am blest,
That, through redeeming grace, Mine is a better rest
Than even thy kind embrace. Thou couldst not save from woe,
Or quell my foes within; Too soon I might have strayed below,
And sought the path of sin.
I tread on holy ground;
And, viewless, hover round.
To this bright world of love; Then will I gladly close thine eyes,
And welcome thee above.
