SONGS FOR BOYHOOD.
153
Can storied urn or animated bust
Back to its mansion call the fleeting breath ? Can Honor's voice provoke the silent dust ?
Or Flattery soothe the dull, cold ear of Death ?
Perhaps in this neglected spot is laid
Some heart once pregnant with celestial fire;
Hands that the rod of empire might have swayed, Or waked to ecstasy the living lyre.
