Poetry

SONNET.
Written during a severe Thunder-Storm.

By J. M. LACEY.
HARK! what an awful burst! it rolls afar

Inimitably grand! Man's art in vaip
May try to give, in life-destroying war,
Some faint resemblance. Mercy! there

again
It peals tremendously, and seems to shake

The vast foundations of the solid earth. Such sounds should bid the bravest bosom

quake,

For heav'n appears to give the tempest

birth! Who, shall dare pity the poor Indian's

thought, That-'tis the voice of an incensed God; . That the pale lightning is with vengeance

fraught, And works destruction at his mighty

nod? Philosophy may smile amid its lore; Be mine to wonder, tremble, and ore,

NATURE AND ART:: THE ROSE TO THE ZEPHYR. Nature and Art at variance were,

luconstant Zephyr, whither toying?. Which shewed most favours to the fair.

You, with every flower that blons, First Art began to urge her pleas

Longing, hasten to be joying, For preference, in words like these :

And forsake your faithful Rose. • The unfinish'd pieces from thy hand

- Ihor court the summer breeze, Around my toilet daily stand.

Nor kiss the gale that fans the trees : Beauty and bloom by thee denied,

Yet for any new-blown fluwer,
Are by my friendly aid supplied, ,
I with nice skill the tints dispose

You forsake my odorous bower.
Of the pale lily and the rose.

Here, 0 Zephyr, breathe thy sighs; With silken brace and plastic stay,

lo my fragrant leaves repose; I shapely symmetry display;

And, till life within me dies, And various other graces deal,

'I will be your faithful Rose. Which the most finish'd belles reveal."

FELICITE. “ Thy works, though specious they appear," Nature replied, “but specious are,

FORGET ME NOT. Grant to gire beauty thou hast power,

Emina, when I am far away, 'Tis but the beauty of an hour. Grant with thy ronge the cheeks may glow, Let not thy love to others stray ;

Far from thy happy woodland cot,
This hue canst thou bid ebb and flow?

Fair Emma, then forget me not!
Call the bright blush now here, now there,
As soft confusion warms the fair?

Forget me not! 'tis thy lov'd form
In vain thy vaunted powers supply

Which chains me to this earthly spot, * The air geateel, the sparkling eye. Mid Fortune's smiles, or Life's rough storm : The strife utequal to make short,

Then, dearest maid, forget me not!
Let models too our pleas support.
The matchless Anna shall be mine :

When Spring with early blossoms crown'd Now, boaster, tell me who is thine?”

Visits thy vine-encircled cot,

And sheds her sweetest smiles around,
OXONIENSIS.

Then, Emma fair, forget me not!

When Summer's sun all fervent glows,
TO SLEEP.

And Sol bis brightest ray has shot, o Sleep! if thy soft dreams can charm to And lovely looks the blushing rose, rest,

Then, then, my love, forget me not! Come, gentle Sleep, in visions make me When Autumn, mild and pleasing maid, blest:

In russet garb shall seek thy cot, Through worlds mysterious, borne on fairy And deck with varying tints the glade, wings,

Then, Emma fair, forget me not! Darkness is light, another Eden springs.

When Winter from his frozen bow Then l'overty lifts up her weaken'd head,

Shoots icy arrows o'er thy cot, And Sickness sees fresh roses deck the bed.

Thy bosom, spotless as his stow, The slave unfetter'd starts from dumb de

Shall sigh to me-forget me not ! spair, Bursts through his iron cell, and breathes

If, mid the battle's rage, fair maid, the balmy air,

I fall on War's impurpled spot, In each calm'd bosom, lull’d by Sleep's deep

And sleep in Death's oblivious shade, spell,

Then, Emma fair, forget me not!
Soft scenes arise where Fancy loves to dwell. Forget me not! but o'er that sod
Angels of peace! ah! watch their slumber- Plant flowers, to mark the hapless spot;
ing woes,

There lift thy heaven-blue eyes to God,
And guard the Sabbath of their dear repose! | With prayers that he forget me not!
