THE DESERTED VILLAGE

The Deserted Village
by Oliver Goldsmith
(final lines)
Teach erring man to spurn the rage of gain;
Teach him that states of native strength possest,
Though very poor, may still be very blest;
That trade's proud empire hastes to swift decay,
As ocean sweeps the labour'd mole away;
While self-dependent power can time defy,
As rocks resist the billows and the sky.



















Under the Bridge
