A TALE OF PARAGUAY.


LVIII.

 At length the hour approach'd that should fulfil
 His harmless heart's desire, when they shall see
 Their fellow kind, and take for good or ill
 The fearful chance, for such it needs must be,
 Of change from that entire simplicity.
 Yet wherefore should the thought of change appal?
 Grief it perhaps might bring, and injury,
 And death;—but evil never can befall
The virtuous, for the Eye of Heaven is over all.
