And this green, favored island, so fresh and sea-blown, When she counts up the worthies her annals have known, Never waits for the pitiful gaugers of sect To measure her love, and mete out her respect. Three shades at this moment seem walking her strand, Each with head halo-crowned, and with palms in his hand,— Wise Berkeley, grave Hopkins, and, smiling serene On prelate and puritan, Channing is seen.
