n8            STEVENSON'S POEMS
There was nae voice of beast ae man, But the tree soughed and the burn ran, And we heard the ae voice of the sea: Bour-tree blossom is fair to see !
SONNETS
L
NOR judge me light, tho' light at times I seem,
And lightly in the stress of fortune bear
The innumerable flaws of changeful careó
Nor judge me light for this, nor rashly deem
(Office forbid to mortals, kept supreme
And separate the prerogative of God !)
That seaman idle who is borne abroad
To the far haven by the favouring stream*
Not he alone that to contrarious seas
Opposes, all night long, the unwearied oar,
Not he alone, by high success endeared,
Shall reach the Port;  but, winged, with some li
breeze
Shall they, with upright keels, pass in before Whom easy Taste, the golden pilot, steered.
