William Collins (Уильям Коллинз)


* * *


HOW sleep the brave, who sink to rest
By all their country's wishes blest!
When Spring, with dewy fingers cold,
Returns to deck their hallow'd mould,
She there shall dress a sweeter sod
Than Fancy's feet have ever trod.

By fairy hands their knell is rung;
By forms unseen their dirge is sung;
There Honour comes, a pilgrim grey,
To bless the turf that wraps their clay;
And Freedom shall awhile repair
To dwell, a weeping hermit, there! 



William Collins's other poems:
  1. Ode on the Popular Superstitions of the Highlands of Scotland
  2. Fidele
  3. Ode To Pity
  4. Ode to Mercy
  5. Ode on the Poetical Character
