To eách age, sex and circumstance and station
Its own particular judgment how accord
Thíng and expression; and that judgment 's truth
Truth to the individual and the measure
By whích, and which alone, he estimates,
Or cán by possibility éstimate,
The truth or falsehood of his neighbour's judgment.

Go, reader, then, and to thy moral truth
Tenácious cling, as to thy dear Palladium,
Thy honor, sacred duty and thy God,
And when men talk to thee of truth essential
Ask them what is it, where is it to be found;
And if they tell thee, here or there or yonder,
Awáy in the pursuít, and thou shalt never
From thát day forward want a pleasant pastime,
A gáme for ever right before thee flying,
For ever near, but never, never caught.

CARLSRUHE, Febr. 5, 1856.

TO MY LOST ONE. *

As long as I had thee, thou deárly loved flower,
The year was to mé sweet spring, súmmer, and autumn;
As soon as thou droopedst and witheredst away,
Ah! thén came the cold frozen winter and stórm.

Í, being a bóy, used thus to count my fingers
“Whý 's a priest like a fingerpost, you dunce ?”

Once it háppened I was walking
The human skull is of deceit
I am a versemaker by trade

Sometimes I 've with my Muse a miff
Sweet breathes the hawthorn in the early spring
King Will his seat in royal state
Wéll, it is a dárling creature!
WRITTEN IN THE ALBUM AT PREDAZZO.
Within the convent of Johannathal
I like the Belgian cleanliness and comfort
WRITTEN UNDER A PORTRAIT OF CARDINAL MEZZOFANTI .
Once on a time it happened as I was lounging in the Vatican
I wish I were that little mouse.

What dóg is that, Sir, tell me, pray
"If well thou wouldst get through this troublesome world”
Another and another and another.
Get úp, fool, from your bended knee
