Oft, on a plat of rising ground,

hear the far-off curfew sound, Over some wide-water'd shore, Swinging slow with sullen roar ; Or, if the air will not permit, Some still removed place will fit, Where glowing embers through the room Teach light to counterfeit a gloom ; Far from all resort of mirth, Save the cricket on the hearth, Or the bellman's drowsy charm, To bless the doors from nightly harm.
