COME, SAID MY SOUL,

SUCH VERSES FOR MY BODY LET US WRITE, (For we are onE,)
THAT SHOULD I AFTER DEATH INVISIBLY RETURN,

OR, LONG, LONG HENCE, IN OTHER SPHERES,

THERE TO SOME GROUP OF MATES THE CHANTS RESUMING,
(TALLYING EARTH'S SOIL, TREES, WINDS, TUMULTUOUS WAVES,)

EVER WITH PLEAS'D SMILE I MAY KEEP ON,

EVER AND EVER YET THE VERSES OWNING-AS, FIRST, I HERE AND NOW,
SIGNING FOR SOUL AND BODY, SET TO THEM MY NAME,

AUTHOR'S NOTE FROM 1891-2 EDITION.

As there are now several editions of L. of G., different texts and
dates, I wish to say that I prefer and recommend this present one, complete,
for future printing, if there should be any; a copy and fac-simile, indeed, of
the text of these 438 pages. The subsequent adjusting interval which is so
important to form'd and launch'd work, books especially, has pass'd; and
waiting till fully after that, I have given (pages 423-438) my concluding
words.
W. W.

These concluding words appear on pp. 433-446 of the present edition.
