  • I would not live alway: I ask not to stay
    Where storm after storm rises dark o’er the way.
    • I would not live alway (published 1826).
  • That heavenly music! what is it I hear?
    The notes of the harpers ring sweet in mine ear.
    And, see, soft unfolding those portals of gold,
    The King all arrayed in his beauty behold!
    • I would not live alway (published 1826).
