Samuel Taylor Coleridge (1772-1834)

Fragment 7: When Hope but made Tranquillity be felt

              1When Hope but made Tranquillity be felt--
              2A Flight of Hopes for ever on the wing
              3But made Tranquillity a conscious Thing--
              4And wheeling round and round in sportive coil
              5Fann'd the calm air upon the brow of Toil--


1] From Notebook 18.
