Once more the moon broke through the cloud , A prisoner set free ;
Again the lawn wore a silvery bloom , And the crape rose from the tree .
The moon came like an angel sent - To bless the sleeping fields
And pools , and brooks , and lakes , , and streams , Shone out like silver shields .
] S " o more I felt that the angel sent Would never return again : .
It was but the ghost of an old regret , That had flitted across my brain .

" To mortals many tongues— to angels one " - —
,, Yet to the Sons of Science is it given , To hear the one immortal voice of heaven ,
While yet on earth their glorious course they run . ] _STo mist of varied language dims the light
With which in Grod ' s own Book they joyous trace , In glowing charactersHis love and grace
His power and wisdom , , ever clear and bright , . Ye noble pair ! whose piercing mental eye ,
From different regions , first discerned the rays , As yet unseenof the dim distant star
, , Last wanderer of our system , —ne ' er shall die Your heaven-born fame ;— together brightly blaze ,
New depths of space exploring ; from afar , Now meetingonward journey to the goal *
, , One in harmonious striving , — one in soul .
