COMBINATIONS OF VERSES.                  73
Another year is swallowed by the sea
Of sunless waves! Another year, thou past eternity ! Has rolled o'er new-made graves.
Ebenezer Elliott. " A New Year."
Give me now my lyre ! I feel the stirrings of a gift divine; Within my bosom glows unearthly fire, Lit by no skill of mine.
Eliz. Lloyd. "Milton's Last Verses."
I do not ask, O Lord, that thou should'st shed
Full radiance here ; Give but a ray of peace, that I may tread Without a fear.
Adelaide Anne Procter. " Per pacem ad lucem."
My days are in the yellow leaf;
The flowers and fruits of love are gone. The worm, the canker, and the grief, Are mine alone !
Byron (In his 36th year).
Four heroics rhyming alternately, as in Gray's Elegy, constitute the Elegiac stanza.
Full many a gem of purest ray serene The dark unfathomed caves of ocean bear;
Full many a flower is born to blush unseen, And waste its sweetness on the desert air.
