THE ARTS.

Yet tell, in proud and grand decay,
How swift the years have passed away,
Since first, a child, and balf afraid,
I wandered in the forest shade.
But thou, gay, merry rivulet,
Dost dimple, play, and prattle yet;
And sporting with the sands that pave
The windings of thy silver wave,
And dancing to thy own wild chime,
Thou laughest at the lapse of time.
The same sweet sounds are in my ear
My early childhood loved to hear;
As pure thy limpid waters run,
As bright they sparkle to the sun;
As fresh the herbs that crowd to dri
The moisture of thy oozy brink;
The violet there, in soft May dew,
Comes up, as modest and as blue;
As green, amid thy current's stress,
Floats the scarce-rooted water cress;
And the brown ground bird, in thy glen,
Still chirps as merrily as then.

Thou changest not—but I am changed,
Since first thy pleasant banks I ranged;
And the grave stranger, come to see
The play-place of his infancy,
das scarce a single trace of him
Who sported once upon thy brim.
The visions of my youth are past
Too bright, too beautiful to last.
I've tried the world—it wears no more
The colouring of romance it wore.
Yet well has nature kept the truth
She promised to my earliest youth ;
The radiant beauty, shed abroad
On all the glorious works of God,
Shows freshly, to my sobered eye,
Each charm it wore in days gone by.

A few brief years shall pass away,
And I, all trembling, weak, and grey,
Bowed to the earth which waits

to fold
My ashes in the embracing mould
(If haply the dark will of fate
Îndulge my life so long a date),
May come for the last time to look
Upon my childhood's favourite brook.
Then dimly on my eye shall gleam
The sparkle of thy dancing stream;
And faintly on my ear shall fall
Thy prattling current's merry call;
Yet shalt thou flow as glad and bright
As when thou met'st my infant sight.

And I shall sleep—and on thy side,
As ages after ages

glide,
Children their early sports shall try,
And pass to hoary age and die.
But thou, unchanged from year to year,
Gaily shalt play and glitter here;
Amid young flowers and tender grass
Thy endless infancy shalt pass;
And, singing down thy narrow glen,
Shalt mock the fading race of men.

TO THE MOON.
I pour my tribute song to thee,

Fairesi gem of even;
Thy pleasant light falls full and free

From a far home in heaven.
Thy silver crest is on the wave

And the cloud that over it hovers;
It sleeps alike on the new-made grave,

And the bridal bed of lovers.
The dark blue depths are spreading fair,

And many a star is beaming
A faintly sparkling lustre there,

While men beneath are dreaming. And those fair stars are still, the while,

To see thee float through heaven, Pouring the glory of thy smile

Through clouds that smile hath riven.
