THE EXILED MOUNTAINEER. (From the French of Châteaubriand.) How sweet the memory of that spot of earth, The happy fatherland that gave me birth! Sister, they never knew, those early days, One thrill of dearth.

My France, my country! thy remembrance stays
By me always!

My sister, can it be thou hast forgot
The happy fireside of our humble cot;
And how our aged mother, sitting there
In that dear spot,

Embraced us while we kissed her silver hair-
A reckless pair?

The castle 'neath whose walls, long, long ago,
The ripples of the river used to flow;
Or that gray tower where, at early morn,
In accents low

The matin-bell the worshippers would warn
Of day reborn?

Mind'st thou the tranquil lakelet's face so blue,
O'er which in summer days the swallows flew;
The breeze which pliant osiers stooped to shun,
The gorgeous hue

We saw emblazoning the setting sun

When day was done?.
