THE EXILED MOUNTAINEER.
A soldier may genius or dunce be; (From the French of Châteaubriand.)
But either can slain only once be,
As one was whose name How sweet the memory of that spot of earth,
Is worthy of fame; The happy fatherland that gave me birth!
That hero of Waterloo, PONSONBY. Sister, they never knew, those early days,
By me always!
NEAR THE END.
TO THE wild days of youth! the dear dead days! And how our aged mother, sitting there In that dear spot,
Dark are the lights and all the chorus dumb, Embraced us while we kissed her silver hair - And cold and faintly through the gath'ring
haze . A reckless pair?
Of this sad twilight time thin echoes come, The castle 'neath whose walls, long, long ago, And wand'ring voices haunt the glimmering The ripples of the river used to flow;
ways. Or that gray tower where, at early morn, In accents low
Sitting alone in these last empty years, The matin-bell the worshippers would warn | Life, starved and dwindled, tells its old tales Of day reborn ?
And, like a wind, the Past sings in mine ears,
The gorgeous hue
Oft from the dreamland of the Long Ago,
ol Bale faces geek me with their eager eyes,
And fain I'd follow them, and fain would know, Ah, who will give my loved ones back to me —
How fares it with them ’neath the starless My forest oaks, my mountain scenery?
skies Their recollection chastens all my days,
That brood above the silent shades below.
Brave souls and beautiful! to what forlorn
Mute fields of Death's cold kingdom are ye
passed? O dreary Death, that hath nowhere forborne,
To pluck earth's fairest flowers and o'ercast
Sweet scents and colours with relentless scorn! POETRY AND PROPER NAMES.
Ah me! A little while the evening light (The former assisting you to pronounce the latter.) | Shall linger wanly in the western sky: THERE dwelt an old cobbler at Bromley, A little while before my falt'ring sight And he had a daughter so comely,
| The pallid day shall glimmer ere it die. That, though he was poor,
| Then, dumbly-dark, shall fall all-ending night. And SNOOKS for name bore,
All The Year Round. That name she relinquished for CHOLMONDE
A small barber shaved for a penny;
He hung out his pole
Along with a scroll,
Yet his line he could trace
To a generous race.
And one I would trust
With the whole of my “dust,"
LIFE'S LITTLE DAY.
Airy visions, fancies gay;
Purpose grows as grows the day.
Brows, tired hands, and riven hearts;
Pleasure's wiles for tears and smarts.
Onwards creep long twilight shadows;
Fairest suns must seek the West; Glories die from flower-bright meadows, Then comes night, and with it Rest.
