Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Excerpt from Astraea; The Balance of Illusions: A Poem, Delivered Before the Phi Beta Kappa Society of Yale College, August 14, 1850 Astraea. What secret charm, long whispering in mine ear, Allures, attracts, compels and chains me here, Where murmuring echoes call me to resign Their sacred haunts to sweeter lips than mine; Where silent pathways pierce the solemn shade, In whose still depths my feet have never strayed; Here, in the home where grateful children meet, And I, half alien, take the stranger s seat, Doubting, yet hoping that the gift I bear May keep its bloom in this unwonted air? Hush, idle fancy, with thy needless art. Speaks from thy fountains, O my throbbing heart! About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
