Experience, next, to thee I owe, Best guide; not following thee, I had remain'd In ignorance; thou open'st wisdom's way, And giv'st access, though secret she retire.
At church, with meek and unaffected grace , His looks adorn'd the venerable place; Truth from his lips prevailed with double sway, And fools , who came to scoff, remain'd to pray.Oliver Goldsmith
The clouds dispell'd, the sky resum'd her light, And Nature stood recover'd of her fright. But fear, the last of ills, remain'd behind, And horror heavy sat on every mind.john dryden
It seem'd as if each thought and look And motion were that minute chain'd Fast to the spot such root she took, And like a sunflower by a brook, With face upturn'd so still remain'd!thomas moore
