Bohemia, oer thy unatlassed borders How many cross, with half-reluctant feet, And unformed fears of dangers and disorders, To find delights, more wholesome and more sweet Than ever yet were known to the elite. Herein can dwell no pretence and no seeming; No stilted pride thrives in this atmosphere, Which stimulates a tendency to dreaming. The shores of the ideal world, from here, Seem sometimes to be tangible and near. We have no use for formal codes of fashion; No Etiquette of Courts we emulate; We know it needs sincerity and passion To carry out the plans of God, or fate; We do not strive to seem inanimate. We call no time lost that we give to pleasure; Life shurrying river speeds to Death sgreat sea; We cast out no vain plummet-line to measure Imagined depths of that unknown To Be, But grasp the Now, and fill it full of glee.
