Hail mildly, pleasing solitude.
Companion of the wise and good,
But from whose holy, piercing eye,
The herds of fools and villains fly;
Oh! how I love with thee to walk,
And listen to thy whispered talk,
Which innocence and truth imparts,
And meets the most obdurate hearts. [ Thomson ]

Heaven's next best gift,
To that of life and an immortal soul! [ Thomson ]

Where joy forever dwells; hail, horrors! [ Milton ]
Hail to the Chief who in triumph advances. [ Sir Walter Scott ]

Who prays against the laws of Time or Fate,
No matter how we murmur and bewail.

Nor lilacs bloom in February. Wait. [ Elizabeth Akers ]
Hail, blooming Youth!
May all your virtues with your years improve,
Till in consummate worth you shine the pride,
Of these our days, and succeeding times,
A bright example. [ Wm. Somerville ]
Hail, holy light! offspring of heaven first-born. [ Milton ]
One grain of pepper is worth a cart load of hail. [ Proverb ]

Who fought and bled in Freedom's cause. [ Joseph Hopkinson ]
Hail, wedded love, mysterious law, true source of human offspring! [ Milton ]
Hail, Memory, hail! in thy exhaustless mine from age to age unnumbered treasures shine. [ Rogers ]
A storm at sea, a vine-wasting hail tempest, a disappointing farm, cause no anxiety to him who is content with enough. [ Horace ]
O gentle sleep! my welcome breath shall hail thee midst our mortal strife, who art the very thief of life, the very portraiture of death. [ Alonzo de Ledesma ]
