Excerpt from Posthumous Poems

Principal occupation. At night, when the unclouded moon shone on the, calm Seahhe often went alone in his little'shallop to the rocky caves that bordered it, and sitting beneath their shelter wrote The Triumph of Life, the last of his productions. The beauty but strangeness of this lonely place, the re+ fined pleasure which he felt in the companionship of a' few selected friends, our entire sequestration from the'rest of the world, 'all contributed to render this period of his life one of continued enjoyment. I em convinced that the two months we passed there were the happiest he had ever known: his health even rapidly improved, and he was never better than-when I last saw'hjm, full of Spirits and joy, embark for Leg horn, that he might there welcpmelmqn hunt to Italy, vas to have accompanied him, but illness confined me to my room, and thus put the seal on my misfortune. His vessel bore out of sight with a fa vmuable wind, and I remained awaiting his return by the breakers of that sea which was about to engulph him.
