"Peace of mind" is a delightful guest that may make its "downy nest" in a "sad heart"
|Metaphor in Context|
Come, peace of mind , delightful guest!
Return and make thy downy nest
Once more in this sad heart:
Nor riches I, nor power pursue,
Nor hold forbidden joys in view,
We therefore need not part.
(ll. 1-6, p. 406)
