- Line engraving
Lettered, upper center: "PLEASURES OF HOPE. | The prophet's mantel, ere his flight began, | Dropt on the world - a sacred gift to man. | Auspicious HOPE! in thy sweet garden grow | Wreaths for each toil, a charm for every woe; | Won by their sweets, in Nature's languid hour, | The way-worn pilgrim seeks thy summer bower; | There, as the wild bee murmurs on the wing, | What Peaceful dreams, thy handmaid spirits bring! | What viewless forms th'Aeolian organ play, | And Sweep the furrow'd lines of anxious thought away. | Angel of life! thy glittering wings explore | Earth's loneliest bounds, and Ocean's wildest shore."; lettered, lower left: "Turner, R.A."; lettered, lower right: "Goodall"
