Текст оригинала на английском языке
Poetry to us is given As stars beautify the heaven, Or, as the sunbeams when they gleam, Sparkling so bright upon the stream; And the poetry of motion Is ship sailing o'er the ocean Or, when the bird doth graceful fly, Seeming to float upon the sky; For poetry is the pure cream And essence of the common theme. Poetic thoughts the mind doth fill, When on broad plain to view a hill; On barren heath how it doth cheer To see in distance herd of deer. And poetry breathes in each flower Nourished by the gentle shower, In song of birds upon the trees And humming of busy bees. 'Tis solace for the ills of life, A soothing of the jars and strife; For poets feel it a duty To sing of both worth and beauty.
