To the Lady E.B. and the Hon. Miss P

AS TREAM , to mingle with your favourite Dee,
Along the Vale OF M EDITATION flows;
So styled by those fierce Britons, pleased to see
In Nature's face the expression of repose;
Or haply there some pious hermit chose
To live and die, the peace of heaven his aim;
To whom the wild sequestered region owes,
At this late day, its sanctifying name.
G LYN C AFAILLGAROCH , in the Cambrian tongue,
In ours, the Vale OF F RIENDSHIP , let this spot
Be named; where, faithful to a low-roofed Cot,
On Deva's banks, ye have abode so long;
Sisters in love, a love allowed to climb,
Even on this earth, above the reach of Time!
