LIVES

Dost thou for riches vainly sigh?

Or Honour's empty show? verilten during a s orihern Gale.

Or dost thou look with envious eye
BUSHING from the irozen north, On those by pow'r exalted high
the frigid breezes blow,

Above the crowd below?
Le! 17dt issues forth,

Sans rings bail, and frost, and snow! Can these, e'en all of them combin'd,
Chilin inrer, once again,

In all their varied forms,
le upon the piercing blast;

Afford contentment to the mind,
Biung in his icy chain

For immortality design’d,
F. ds, and fields, and vapours fast!

Midst life's tempestuous storms?
Muteir pine the feather'd choir, Ah, no ! 'tis Friendship’s generous glow
Per hing on the leafless hough;

And sympathizing eye
And the flocks and herd's rerire,

That constitute our bliss below!
Asking man for shelter now.

No greater boon can Heav'n bestow
Dreadful is the want'rer's fate,

On mortals doom'd to die !
Pacing the unshelier'd plain,
Weary, cold, benumb'd, and late Grant me, my God, this one request,
Longing oft for home in vain!

And I will ask no more!

Oh let me, with thy Friendship blest,
Dashing o'er the bursting wave,

Enjoy in thee that heav'nly rest
Mighty ships like atoms roll;

To which my wishes soar!
Scud the mount, or plange the grave,
Owning not the helm's controul. Somersetshire.

Now the shatter'd fabrics fail,

Found'ring sink, to rise no more ;
Or, urg'd onward by the gale,

Through the veins of hoary age
Slowly life's reil current creeps;

EARL OF KINGSTON'S ARMS.
And beneath stern Winter's rage,
Shiv'ring Mis'ry silent weeps:

Spes tutissima Cælis.
Hov'sing o'er the embers glow,

Wrap'd in wretchedness and wov, HOPE, sweetest comfort, steady friend,
Round the glimm'ring hearth they Who ever dost thy succours lend,
quake.

Whene'er my mind's opprest:
Ye who, clad in garments warm,

Oft have I found thy genial rays
Shelter'd in a sase retreat,

Dispel the clouds of darkest days,
Sbudder when you hear the storm

And set my soul at rest!
Rudely at your windows beat,

Bit ah! on Earth I dare not cast
Feel, ob feel, for those who need!

And loose its hold, and in this gade Thus fulfil the law of Love !

Of snares and tempests me should fail, ALIQUIS.

And my fond schemes should break. TO MY SOUL.

The safest hope's in Heaven above !

Stable and firm 'twill ever prove,
Poor hapless, helpless, bopeless thing,

For God will ne'er deceive;
Say what is thy desire;

I safe and joyful live!
And all that summer seasons bring,
Can bought of joy inspire !
