THE CAMBRIDGE CHIME.

TUDENTS rowing on the river, Brilliant clubs in blue and white, Lay upon their oars to liften

To the mufic of the bells;

While the waves beneath them quiver
In the sunset's golden light,
And the bubbles dance and glisten

Gloriously we hear them ringing
Out "Fair Harvard," loud and clear;
Then, when round "the tree" entwining

While the sun's laft ray is fhining

On the academic band,

"Auld Lang Syne" fhall flowly sound,

And the ftudent chorus swells
To the mufic of the bells.

Many a maid shall, sweetly dreaming,
Walk around our ancient town,
And, her eyes with pleasure beaming,
Hear some merry marriage peal
From the belfry floating down
Gently o'er her senses steal;
See the Bride in bright array
Gayly drive from church away,-

While each heart responfive swells
To the mufic of the bells.

Turns the son in after years,
And, with heart and look sedater,
Views each scene which reappears
Peopled with familiar faces,
Voiceful with remembered mirth,-
Swift the vanished paft retraces,
