As of ancestors, he hears them,Speaking of his son and grandsons.His great-grandsons stand around him,Like a race of valiant mortals,Him to honour,--him, the youngest.And one token on anotherRises up, the proof completing;The identity is provenOf himself, and of his comrades.
The Winter and TimurTo Suleika
That to wed with the base-born is right;The beggar has borne me a beggarly crew,--"

I sing of a maid's repentant fears,
If gladly is to thaw the frozen soul,
1771.-----THE BEAUTIFUL NIGHT.
