No flowers, alas! it knows to strew, Frewhile, some simple, rural theme,
In happier days, my Muse had giver,
The daisied mead, the murmuring stream, As emblems of remembrance * ;--
The dawning of the Star of Heaven. Which midoight deckings of the tomb
Pleas'd with the memory of days, Add.woe to woe, and gloom to gloom.
Fleeting indeed, but, ah, how sweet! Oh I once the loveliest hand it held,
Methought I would recall some lays, That fondest gaze had e'er beheld,
The solace of my lone retreat. That light could shew, or Heaven could

Then struck my lyre--and sighidin
And, ab! I cried, the calm is broke,
The tranquil heart no more is mine; And “paler than the pale primrose.” What storm is this, and whence the stroke? These are the last that it will write,
Ah, cruel Love! the storm is thine, The latest efforts of its might ;
Farewell, ye sylvan scenes ! awhile : For him that guides it, grief hath crost,
A magic, dearer than your own, And his life's dearest tie is lost;
The magic of Eliza's smile, Oh! Sorrow so hath shaded o'er
Recalls her wanderer to the towo. Each prospect, that he looks no more,
Farewell, awhile! perhaps his pain Save to the latest-daskest, Deaih,
Eliza ! may thy bosom move ; To sleep with her, who sleeps beneath.
Then will his lyre awake again, Lambeth.
