THE TOMB OF LAURA. Forgetting the fantastic dance
By J M. LACEY.

I love to stroll when others sleep,

Bending across poor Laura's tomb A truant from my pillow,

In softest-seeming pity, And gazing o'er the rocky steep,

On azure pinions flying, Or scarcely heard the distant oar,

To guard the spot from scowling storms Some drowsy seaman plying.

Where her remains are lying. There Contemplation, pensive pow'r,
