With more than Fancy's load of luxury,
And prove a true love-letter.

I love vast libraries; yet there is a doubt,

I love vast libraries; yet there is a doubt,
If one be better with them or without,--
Unless he use them wisely, and, indeed,
Knows the high art of what and how to read.

The same you have frequently heard,
In your rambles in valleys and forests,
Repeating your ultimate word.
