    As the sweet voice of a bird,
    Heard by the lander in a lonely isle,
    Moves him to think what kind of bird it is,
    That sings so delicately clear, and make
    Conjecture of the plumage and the form.

Breathes there the man with soul so dead,
Who never to himself hath said,
This is my read more

Breathes there the man with soul so dead,
Who never to himself hath said,
This is my own, my native land!
Whose heart hath ne'er within him burn'd,
As home his footsteps he hath turn'd,
From wandering on a foreign strand!
