Now cheering autumn leaves the plain,
And dark December's gloomy reign

Commences o'er our land ;
No more the fanning zephyrs blow,
The bubbling fountains cease to flow

At winter's loud command.
The beardless rocks-the naked trees,

And fading turf declare,
They shrink before the shivering breeze,
Beneath the piercing air.

Ah! who can view

The sad adieu
Of nature, without pain ;

Who would not here,

Indulge a tear,
And wish her back again,

T

Yaus was

Cold as December's wintry skies,
And dreary, all my prospects rise ;

Oh! when will genial spring,
With smiles allay stern winter's wrath,
Ånd strew with flowers my thorny path,

And new enjoyments bring.
The sunshine of my early days

No more illumes my way ;
But clouds obscure the vernal rays,
And chase their light away.

Kind hope to thee

I bend the knee, Imploring still thy aid,

Leave not this breast

Devoid of rest,
Where grief too long has prey'd.
