“Sit down, sad soul” by Bryan Waller Procter.

SIT down, sad

soul, and count
The moments flying;
Come, tell the sweet amount
That ’s lost by sighing!
How many smiles?—a score?
Then laugh, and count no more;
For day is dying!

Lie down, sad soul, and sleep,
And no more measure
The flight of time, nor weep
The loss of leisure;
But here, by this lone stream,
Lie down with us, and dream
Of starry treasure!

We dream: do thou the same;
We love,—forever;
We laugh, yet few we shame,—
The gentle never.
Stay, then, till sorrow dies;
Then—hope and happy skies
Are thine forever!

    My first encounter with this splendid poem. Thanks for your great recitation. You should do Keats’ “ode to a nightingale” 😉

    I thought that the English rarely used the word "soul".
