Just parted from the shore,
And to the fisher's chorus-note,
Soft moves the dipping oar!“

Song, Oh, Swiftly glides the Bonnie Boat; reported in Hoyt's New Cyclopedia Of Practical Quotations (1922), p. 74.

Cannot be parted nor be swept away
From one another once you are agreed
That life is only life forevermore
Together wing to wing and oar to oar.“

Prolonging every note with art“

Prolonging every note with art;
And in a low expiring strain,
Play all the concert o'er again.
