Poems and Extracts/Thy shades thy silence now be mine

Poems and Extracts by William Wordsworth
"Thy shades thy silence now be mine" by James Beattie

Thy shades thy silence now be mine,
Thy charms my only theme,
My haunt the hollow cliff whose pine
Waves o'er the gloomy stream,
Whence the scared Owl on pinions grey,
Breaks through the rustling boughs.
And down the long vale sails away
To more profound repose.

Beattie.
