On this altar God hath built I lay my vanity and guilt; Nor me can Hope or [undecipherable] urge Hearing as now the lofty dirge Which [undecipherable] of Northern mountains hymn Nature's funeral, high and dim, - [undecipherable] able pageantry of clouds, Mourning Summer laid in Shrouds.

Many a day Shall dawn and die, Many an angel wander by, And helping, light my [undecipherable] turf. [undecipherable] perhaps by Ocean Surf, Forgotten amid splendid Tombs, Yet wreathed and hid by Summer blooms.
