PART I.

When round yon ample board, in due degree, THE PLEASURES OF MEMORY.

We sweeten'd every meal with social glee.
The heart's light laugh pursued the circling jest,
And all was sunsbine in each little breast.

'Twas here we chased the slipper by the sound;
TWILIGHT's soft dews steal o'er the village green, And turn'd the blindfold hero round and round.
With magic tints to harmonize the scene. 'Twas here, at eve, we form'd our fairy ring;
Still'd is the hum that through the hamlet broke, And fancy flutter'd on her wildest wing.
When round the ruins of their ancient oak Giants and genii chain'd each wondering ear ;
The peasants flock'd to hear the minstrel play, And orphan sorrows drew the ready tear.
And games and carols closed the busy day. Oft with the babes we wander'd in the wood,
Her wheel at rest, the matron thrills no more Or view'd the forest feats of Robin Hood:
With treasured tales, and legendary lore. Oft, fancy-led, at midnight's fearful hour,
All, all are fled; nor mirth nor music flows With startling step we scaled the lonely tower;
To'chase the dreams of innocent repose.

O'er infant innocence to hang and weep, All, all are fled; yet still I linger here !

Murder'd by ruffian hands, when smiling in its What secret charms this silent spot endear!

sleep. Mark yon old mansion frowning through the trees, Ye household deities ! whose guardian eye Whose hollow turret woos the whistling breeze. Mark'd each pure thought, ere register'd on high ; That casement arch'd with ivy's brownest shade, Still, still ye walk the consecrated ground, First to these eyes the light of heaven convey'd. And breathe the soul of inspiration round. The mouldering gateway strews the grass-grown As o'er the dusky furniture I bend, court,

Each chair awakes the feeling of a friend. Once the calm scene of many a simple sport; The storied arras, source of fond delight, When nature pleased, for life itself was new, With old achievement charms the wilder'd sight; And the heart promised what the fancy drew. And still, with heraldry's rich hues imprest, See, through the fractured pediment reveal'd, On the dim window glows the pictured crest, Where moss inlays the rudely-sculptured shield, The screen unfolds its many.color'd chart, The martin's old, hereditary nest :

The clock still points its moral to the heart. Long may the ruin spare its hollow'd guest! That faithful monitor 'twas heaven to hear, As jars the hinge, what sullen echoes call ! When soft it spoke a promised pleasure near ; O haste, unfold the hospitable hall!

And has its sober hand, its simple chime, That hall, where once, in antiquated state, Forgot to trace the feather'd feet of time ? The chair of justice held the grave debate. That massive beam, with curious carvings Now stain'd with dews, with cobwebs darkly wrought, bung,

Whence the caged linnet soothed my pensive Oft has its roof with peals of rapture rung;
