And sweet homes nestle in these dales,
     And perch along these wooded swells;
And, blest beyond Arcadian vales,
     They hear the sound of Sabbath bells!
Here dwells no perfect man sublime,
     Nor woman winged before her time,
But with the faults and follies of the race,
     Old home-bred virtues hold their not unhonored place.
