But you made the whole business the hell of a botch.

Glendine, oh lovely calm retreat
The seal of a rural peace and bliss
Thy bowers are beautiful and sweet
When tinged with Summer's repining bliss

There beauty wandering wreaths a spell
Among the stately wood-crowned heights
And o'er gently sloping dells
