<poem>Oh! there are golden moments in men's lives,

Sudden, unlooked for, as the little clouds All gold, which suddenly illume the gates Of the lost sun.

                             Oh, pray for them! They bring

No increase like the gains of sun and showers, Only a moments brightness to the earth, Only a moments gleam in common life, Yet who would change them for the wealth of worlds?
