There was a time in the gay spring of life,
Southern's Fate of Capua.
Youth is, ever, apt to judge in haste,
Grief seldom join'd with youthful bloom is seen;
Young men soon give, and soon forget affronts;
Oh! the joy
Of young ideas painted on the mind,
Hannah More's David and Goliah, pt. 2.
I took the rabble's shouts for love-the breath
My only guerdon. Byron's Sardanapalus, a. 4, s. 1.
Happy the school-boy! did he prize his bliss,
With glee, which causes him to tread on air. Knox.

Tottering from room to room, and finding pleasure
Raise only now a melancholy wish,
I were the little trifler once again
Who could be pleas'd so lightly.
Zeal and duty are not slow;
But on occasion's forelock watchful wait.
Milton's Paradise Regained, b. 3.
None seconded, as out of season judg'd,
Ibid. b. 5.
