Here you will find the Poem Sonnet: At Ostend, July 22nd 1787 of poet William Lisle Bowles
How sweet the tuneful bells' responsive peal! As when, at opening morn, the fragrant breeze Breathes on the trembling sense of wan disease, So piercing to my heart their force I feel! And hark! with lessening cadence now they fall, And now, along the white and level tide, They fling their melancholy music wide, Bidding me many a tender thought recall Of summer-days, and those delightful years When by my native streams, in life's fair prime, The mournful magic of their mingling chime First waked my wond'ring childhood into tears;— But seeming now, when all those days are o'er, The sounds of joy, once heard, and heard no more.
