(a mono-rhyme) To be exalted...

And anger, makes you fumble,
And like boulders that rumble
On the hill-side, you tumble,
In life, you could then stumble.

poet George Gordon Byron

It is the hour when from the boughs
The nightingale's high note is heard;
It is the hour -- when lover's vows
Seem sweet in every whisper'd word;
And gentle winds and waters near,
