Full text of "Selections from Canadian poets:"

This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 
to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 
to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 
are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other marginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 
publisher to a library and finally to you.

Google is proud to partner with libraries to digitize public domain materials and make them widely accessible. Public domain books belong to the 
public and we are merely their custodians. Nevertheless, this work is expensive, so in order to keep providing this resource, we have taken steps to 
prevent abuse by commercial parties, including placing technical restrictions on automated querying. 

We also ask that you: 

+ Make non-commercial use of the files We designed Google Book Search for use by individuals, and we request that you use these files for 
personal, non-commercial purposes. 

+ Refrain from automated querying Do not send automated queries of any sort to Google's system: If you are conducting research on machine

use of public domain materials for these purposes and may be able to help. 

+ Maintain attribution The Google "watermark" you see on each file is essential for informing people about this project and helping them find 
additional materials through Google Book Search. Please do not remove it. 

+ Keep it legal Whatever your use, remember that you are responsible for ensuring that what you are doing is legal. Do not assume that just 
because we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States, that the work is also in the public domain for users in other 
countries. Whether a book is still in copyright varies from country to country, and we can't offer guidance on whether any specific use of 
any specific book is allowed. Please do not assume that a book's appearance in Google Book Search means it can be used in any manner

PREFACE. 



Mt objoot in compiling this Yolome has boon to rosone from 
oblivion some of the floating pieoos of Canadian authorship 
worthy of presenration m a moro permanent form ; and to 
direct the attention of mj fellow-countrTmon to the cliums of 
Canadian poetry. The fact that I entered on an untrodden 
path| without any way-marks to guidq me, necessarily caused 
me a vast amount of labor, and an extensive oorrospondence ; 
as, m many instances, both poets and poetry had to be dis- 
covered by special research. This will, I hope, bo duly con* 
ttdored by readers m judging of the work, should it be found 
less perfect than they had anticipated. 

As I do not wish to bo judged by a wrong standard, t 
must remind my readers that this is not ^^ a work on the 
Poets and Poetry of Canada.** Such a work may be highfy 
desirable and necessary ; and there is valuable material, in 
the poetic effiittons of the past fifty years, with which to 
enrich such a work. But this collection makes no pretentton 
to such a character : it is simply <' Sblsotioits from Cana- 
dian Posts.** With the hope of enhancing the mterest and 
usefulness of the work, I have subjoined occasional brief 
notes ; but the plan and scope of the work precluded any 
lengthy biographical sketches. It is easy for persons who

INTRODUCTORY ESSAY. 



Ohlt the illiterata and unreflecting adopt the sentiment, that, 
beoauM more books have • been alreaii/ produoed than can possibl/ 
be read in the compass of the longest life, to increase the number of 
books or the quantity of literature, is undef>irable and unnecessary. 
The literature of the world is the fooCrprinu of human progress | and 
unless all progress should ceas^ and mental paralysis arrest all 
human activity, these way-marks shall continue to be erccteil along 
the pathway of the Tanishing years. Whatever is discovered as new 
io the records of creation, in the capacities and relations of things, in 
the history of the mind's operations, or in the forms of thought and 
imagery by which in its higher moods soul speaks to soul, will 
always demand some suitable embodiment in literature. 

Equally shallow and reprehensible is the idea, very widely ente^ 
tained, tliat, because we can procure sufficient quantities of mental 
aliment from other lands, it is superfluous to make any attempt to 
build up a literature of our own. A national literature is an essential 
element in the formation of national character. It is not merely the 
reconl of a oountr/e mental progress i it is the expression of its 
intellectual life, the bond of national unity, and the guide of national 
energy. It may be ikirly questioned, whether the whole range of 
hbtory presenu the spectacle of a people firmly uniteil politically, 
without the subtle but powerful cement of a patriotic literature. On 
the other band, it is easy to show, that, in tltd older countries d the 
world, the names of distinguished poets, enshrined in the national 
heart, are the watchwords jof national union ) and it has become a 
part of the patriotism of the people to honor and love their memory. 
To mention the names of dhakspere and Bumsi alone justiflee tUc

th>m familUrit/ with low ttjrleai or ftom the frequeaoj with which. 
Twse hM been degraded to be the rehicle of low and debMiof 
thought Butwhaterer be their origin, they are ihlae and misleading. 
The/ ignore the essential unit/ of the mind. Poetry is not the pro* 
duct of anjr one fiftcultjr of the mind : it is the offspring of the whole 
mind| in the fUll ejwrcise of all its (kottltiesi and in its highest moode 
of ajrmpath/i with the truths of the worlds of mind and matter. It 
la not some artificial distortion of thought and language bjr a capri* 
dotts fane/ 1 it has its foundation in tha mental constitution which 
our Creator has giron us. As fVagrance to the sense of smell| musio 
to the ear, or beaut/ to the e/e, so is poetr/ to the sensibilities of the 
heart. It ministers to a want of our intellectual nature. This is the 
secret of its power, and the pledge of its perpetuit/. An able Ameri- 
can writer observes with great truth and beaut/ 1 " It was spontaneoua 
in iu growth, and natire in its origin. It arose flrom those immutable 
principles of harmon/, established originall/ b/ Him who strung that 
invisible harp in the nature of man, and tuned accordant the mightier 
instruments of the universe around him. It is not therefore depen- 
dent on the mutations of human caprice and (kshion j nor is it super* 
ceded b/ the discoveries and improvements in societ/." Poetr/ is the 
medium b/ which the emotions of beaut/, jo/, admiration, reverence^ 
harmon/, or tenderness kindled in the poet«oul, in communion with 
Nature and God, is conve/ed to the souls of others. As there are 
rii/mesters who have no true poetic fteling^ so there are man/ who 
are not giiled with the power of giving expression to the emotions 
which throb for utterance at the heart The influence of beaut/.or 
grandeur, moral and ph/sical, " the/ foel, but cannot speak." To 
this foeling^. which exists in a stronger or weaker degree in all minds, 
Poetr/ appeals. Where this tongueless poetr/ of the heart has no 
existence, or exists in a ver/ feeble degree, the conditions for appre* 
ciatang poetic excellence are wanting. As well might the blind judge 
of beaut/, or the deaf of music, as such to judge of poetr/. Lot no 
one thenfore speak of their disregard for poetr/ as if it indicated a 
•npcriorit/ to ordinal/ weakness : it is an imperfection, that ma/ bo 
eadnrsd as a misfortune^ but should never be flaoated as a virtiia.

happiness. It fires the soul with noble wad holj parpose. It expands 
and quickens. It refines the taste. It opens to us the treasures of 
the universe^ and brings us into closer sjrmpathjr with all that Is 
beauUfuli and grand, and true. It sheds a new charm around com* 
mon objects ; because it unreils their spiritual relational and higher 
' and deeper typical meanings. And it educates the mind to a quicker 
perception of the harmonjr, grandeur, and truth disclosed in the 
works of the Creator. The history of poetrj is a sufiicient rebuke 
to those who speak slightingly of its influence. We know of no period 
in the wcrki's history where it was not a power either for good or eriL 
It has exerted a mighty influence on some of the leading minds of 
STery age; to say nothing of the "hymns of fluth and hope," that 
hare, in every period and sphere in the history of the church, proved, 
in life and in death, a source of strength and consolation to its mem. 
bers. H in many instances, this sacred gift bas been linked with 
folly, scepticism, and licentiousness^ tliis did not arise fh>m any nalire 
tendency of poetry itself. In such instances. Poetry is false ' > her 
mission \ and gifted men are wicked in spite of their gifts. Bui this 
is not her native sphere. It is the beloved son, far IVom his true 
home, feeding swine. * And even in those melancholy cases where 
poetic gifts are perverted and degraded, there are seen, like grains of 
gold amid the dross, outbursts of indignation against wrung, gleams 
of admiration for virtue, and gtishes of tender sympathy fur human 
•ufiMng^ that seem like the protest of Poesie, in her thraldom, against 
a forced and unnatural divorcement IVom beauty, purity, and truth. 

These views respecting the dignity of poetry will enable us to take 
higher and truer views of the work and mission of him to whom God 
has given this " vision and fitculty divine." How low and unworthy 
are the popular conceptions of the Poet's work and character J The 
many have thought of him as a mere rhymer of idle and foolish 
fonoies, deserving censure because not better employed. Of course 
those who cherished false and degrading views of poetry, had equally 
iklse and unworthy viewe of the character of a PueC But the Poet's 
work is a lofty and sacred work. It is not merely to wreath garlands .

The Stars are heaveii's ministers; 

Right royally they toaeh 
Goal's g^ory and omnipotence, 

* In wondrous lowly speech* 
All eloquent with music, m 

The tremblings of a lyre, 
To him that hath an ear to hear 

They speak in words of fire. 

Not to leamM sagas only 

Their whisperings come down; 
The monarch is not Verified 

Because he wears a crown. 
The humblest soldier in tlie camp 

Can win the smile of Mars, 
And 'tis the lowliest spiriu hold 

OommunioA with the stars.

And pin it, shadowed down, amid thy doptha—

Whether one vast unbroken shoot of oalm, 
Whore the long finger of the lonely mast 
Points through the aiure solitude, to Qod I 
Or whether, from out Uiy solemn slumbers roused. 
Shaking thy dripping hide and awful erost, 
Thou goost forth to meet the fierce typhoon 
That, plumed with darkness, blurred with fire and 
Seattors thy fleets 'mid shoals and sunken rooks, 
And loaves them like dead sea-fowl drifting there I . 

How great art thou t— at mom I— or noon I— or t?e^

The huge, red Aimaee of the dying day 
Pours out its lava o*er thy radiant floor.

Who teaoheth the Moose that the hunter's gun

Who teaoheth the doe and the fawn to run

Within my chamber still,

And my worn and wearied watchers 

Scarce dare to move or weep,

In deep and quiet sleep. 

But huah I what are those Toices

Full of strange, celestial sweetnesa,

Bright ia the annahine when the tempeata flee ; 
Bat brighter far the home where dwell thy ohoaea 

Ever with Thee. 

Dear are the hoora when thoae we loYe are near na; 
I)ear, but how tranaient muat their brightoeaa bet 
That one glad day will know no aadder morrow 

Ever with Thee. 

Love will be there : methinka all other gloriea 
Nothing to thoae enraptured aoula will be. 
Filled with the tranaport of that one aaauranoei 
Ever with Thee. 

Bat long may be the way that we muat traTeli 
And many a darkening atorm we yet may aee, 
Dread aorrowa may o'erwholm ua ere we're aheltered 
Ever with Thee. 

Not 80 : thy hand, extended through the darkneaa^ 
Leadeth ua on the way, we cannot aee, 
And| olaaping that^ e'en here we walk in aafety 

Ever with Thee.

Wl&at bave I left but to dream 

Of my love that is laid in her rest, 
To live aa I lived, for my life'a years aeem 

Bat an empty dream at the beat I 
Everything round ia stilly 

And white as a new-made shroudi 
From the -snow-elad lea to the pines on the bill| 

And the fleeey veil of the oloud« 

Here on the snow I lie 

Seeking a balm for eare. 
Looking up to the blank of the sky. 

And the blue of the fathomless air. 
Hark ! how the ohill winds wail. 

And shiver and moan in their flight; 
What a depth of woe in the sorrowful tale 

They tell in the ear of night t 

What is it that makes them sad 7 

Bo they miss the grace of the flowerSi 
And sigh for the time when their breath was glad 

With the sweets of the summer hours? 
Ye do well, chill winds, to rave, 

For the day of your brides has fled, 
The earth lies heavy and oold on their gravOi 

They are dead— and she too is dead 1 

II.

Swoon bto sleep, nighty 

For the air is heavy and still, 
And the shimmering glanoe of the moonbeam's Ughi 

Comes down like % deadly ehilL

Oh I such is the hour

Of the mogio, hright Old Woods I 
Then, while sluggards dreanii 
Of some trifling theme, 
Let us stroll. 
With studious soul,^ 
Through the depths of the hrighl Old Woods. 

Oh I come, oomc away to the mild Old Woods, 

• At the Evening's stilly hour, 
Er6 the maiden lists for her lover's steps, 
By the verge of the vine-clad bower ; 
When all nature fools 
The change that steals 
So calmly o*or hill and dale. 
And the broescs range ' 
Weirdly strange. 
With a low, delicious wail ; 
This, too, is the hour 
io fed the power 
Of the silent, mild Old Woods I 

Then, while dullards dream 
Of some fruitless theme, 
We will stroll 
With thankful soul. 
Through the depth* of the mild Old Woods.

In the sea-port of Sunt Male 'twas a smiling morn in May, 
When the Commodore Jaoqaes Cartier to the westward sailed away ; 
In the erowded old Cathedral all the town were on their knees 
For the safe retnm of kinsmen from the undisoovered seas; 
And every antnmn blsst that swept o*er pinnaole and |Mer 
Filled manly hearts with sorrow, and gentle hearts with ftar* 

A year passed o*er Saint Male— -again oame round the day 
When the Commodore Jaoqaes Cartier to the westward sailed away ; 
Bat no tidings from the absent had eome the way they went^ 
And tearfal were the vigils that many a maiden spent ; 
And manly hearts were filled with gloom, and gentle hearts with 

fear. 
When no tidings eame from Cartier at the ekwing of the year. 

Bat the earth is as the Fature, it hath its hidden side, 

And the Captain of Saint Male was rejoieing in his pride 

In the forests of the North-rwhile his townsmen moamed Us 1obS| 

He was rearing on Moant-Royal theflcur^tfi-lU and eross ; 

And when two months were over and added to the year, 

Samt Male hailed him home again, ehoer answering to eheer. 

He told them of a region, hard, iron-boand and eold, 

Nor seas of pearl abounded, nor mines of shining gold, .

THE chaudi£:be falls. 

BTA«X*OOLL. 

Where the Ottawa poun its magnifioeiit tide 
Through forests primeval, dark-wayiog and wide, 
There's a soene that for grandeur has soaroely a pecTi 
'Tis the wild| roaring rush of the mighty Ohandike. 

On, onward it dashe»^an ooean of spray ; 

How madly it lashes the rooks in its way I 

Like the onset of hosts, when spear breaks against spear, 

Is th* omnipotent sweep of the mighty Chaudidre. 

Eyermore, loud as thunder the wdkin that rends, 
Hark that antlicm sublime which to Heaven asocndsl 
Those dork crags in its path seem to quiver with fear; 
They may well dread the shook of the mighty Ohauditos I 

The pround conqueror's might is the boast of a day ; 
Thine, river majestio 1 enduroth for aye« 
Strange thought, that just thus upon Time's infimi ear 
Came the God-speaking voice of the mi^^ty Ohaadi4rs. 

Though, for lips uninspired, it seems almost a orime 
To be aught else than mute by a soene so subUme; 
Could I paint as I/ofl while I gate on it h^ 
How immortal in song wero the mighty Chaudiiral

The barqae its derioos ooorse is steering; 
While hoarse and loud the billows brake 
On islands of oar own broad lakel 

Immense, bright lake! I traois in thee 
An emblem of the mighty ooean; 
And in thy restless waves I see 
Natore's eternal kw of motion ; 
And flmej sees the Hnron Ohief 
Of the dim past, kneel to impbre thee—* 
With Indian awe he seeks rdief, 
In pooring homage out before thee ; 
And I, too, feel my rererenoe wake, 
As gaaing on our own broad lakel 

I oannot feel as'I haye fUt, 

When life with hope and fire was teeming; 

Nor kneel as I haye often knelt 

At beauty's shrine, devoutly dreaming. 

Some younger hand must strike the stringy 

To tell of Huron's awful grandeur : 

Her smooth and moonlight slumbering, 

Her tempoet voices loud as thunder ; 

Some loftier lyre than mine must wake, 

To sing our own broad gloaming lakel

Now froitfol fields and waving orohard treea 
Spread iheir rich treaaures to the sammer breeae.^ 
Yonder, in queenij pride, a oity atanda, 
Whenoe atately Teoela apeed to diatant landa; • 
Heje amilea a hamlet through embowering greeo^ . - 
And there, the statelier Tillage-spirea are aeea i^ 
Here bj the brook-side elaoka the noiay mill, 
There, the white homestead nestles to the hUl ; 
The modest sohool-hoose here flings wide its door , 
To smiling erowds that seek its simple lore ; 
There, Learning's statelier fane of masaire walla ' 
Wooa the yoong aapirant to olassie halla ; 
And bida him in her hoarded treaaarea, find 
The gathered wealth of all earth's gifted minds. 

Here' too, we see, in primal froslinoss still, 
The eool, oalm forest nodding on the hill, 
And o'er the qaiet valley, clustering green, 
The tall treea linked in brotherhood serene. 
Feeding from year to year the soil below, 
Which shall, in time, with golden harvests glow. 
And yield more wealth to Labor's sturdy hands 
Than fabled Eldorado's yellow aanda. 

Where onoe, with thund'ring din, in years bygone, 
The heavy wagg;on labored alowly on, 
Through dreary swamps by rudest causeway qpaaned, 
With shaggy oedara dark on either hand-— "^ 

Where wolvea oft howled in nightly chorua drear, 
And boding owla mocked the lone travoUer'a fei 
Now, o'er the stable Rail, the Iron-horse 
Sweeps proudly on, in hia exultant oourse.

No 1 — ^Uie sweet Tisioa of a home— liii own. 
Haunted his days of toil, his midnights lone ; 
Till, gath'ring up his little earthly store. 
Boldly he sought this fkroff Western shore ; 
In a few years to realise far more 
Than in his wildest dreams he hoped befbre. 

We oannot boast those skies of milder ray, * 
'Neath whioh the orange meUows day by day; 
Where the Magnolia spreads her snowy flow«r% 
And Nature revels in perennial bowers ;— 
fiere, Winter holds his long and solemn rMgn, 
And madly sweeps the desolated plain ;— 
But Health and Vigor hail the wintry strift, 
With all the buoyant glow of happy life ; 
And by the biasing chimney's cheerful hearth, 
Smile at the blast 'mid songs and household mirth; 

Here, Freedom looks o'er all these broad domains^ 
And hears no heavy clank of servile chains ; 
Here man, no matter what his skin may be, 
Can stand erect, and proudly say, I'lc frxi I'-^ 
No crouching slaves cower in our busy marts, 
With straining eyes and anguish-riven hearts. 

The beam that gilds alike the palace walls 
And lowly hut, with genial radiance falls 
On peer and peasant, — but the humblest here 
WaUu in the sunshine, free as is the peer. ^ 

Proudly he stands with muscle strong and fres^ 
The serf— the slave of no man, doomed to be. 
His. own, the arm the heavy aze that wields ; 
His own, the hands thsi till the summer fields;

^OAHADIAN F0BT8. VSS 

Amid the ahftdos of forosto darki 
' Oar loTod islo will appear 
An EdoD, wlioflo deliciouB bloom 

Will make tho wild more dreer— 
And joa in solitude will weep 

0*er aoenee belor'd in Tabi 
And pine away jour life to view 

Onoe more your natite plam I 

Then pause, dear girl, ere those fimd lips 

Your wanderer's fate dooide; 
My spirit spurns the selfish widi— 

You must not bo my brido-* 
But oh, that smile— those tearfbl ejte 

My firmer purpose moTo— 
Our hearts ere one— and wo will dare 

All jtorils thus to love. 



80NNST— WINTER NIGHT. 

O. BBATTIIOa. 

The stars ore setting in the frosty sky, 

Numerous as pebbles on a brood sea eoasi ; 
While o'er the vault the oloud-liko gala^ 

Has marshalled its innumerable host 
Alive all heaven seems: with wondrous gloW| 

Tenfold refulgent every star appears ; 
As if some wide, oelestial gale did blow, 

And thrioe illume the ever-kindled sphetes.-

In a gnoefal deigh, drawn hj spiritod sloedi 
Y<m glide o'er the snow with lightning Bpood, 
jWliilat ftom hamoas docked with stlvoiy bdlii 
In sweet showers the sound on the clear air iwaBi| 
And the keen bracing brooio with vigor rifci 
Sends quick through your veins warm streams of Uft. 

On, with jour snow-shoes, so strong and lighi| 
Thick blankctooat, sash of scarlet bright, 
And awaj o'er the deep and untrodden snoW| 
Through wood, o'er mountain, untrammelled to go^ 
Through kme narrow paths where in years loQg tsd. 
The Indian passed with light active tnNML 

WhatI dare to rail at our snow storms— why 
Not view them with poet's or artist's eye. 
Watch each pearly flake as it fulls from above, 
Like snowy plumes from some spotless dove^ 
Clothing all objects m ermine of air, 
Far purer than that which monarohs wear I 

Have you not witnessed our glorious nights^ 
So brilliant with gloaming Northern-lights^ 
Quick flashing and darting across the sky, 
Whilst afar in the starry heavens high. 
The shining moon pours down streams of lighi| 
O'er the silent earth robed in dassling white T 

There ore times, too, our woods show wondrous pghtS| 
Such as are rood of in ** Arabian Nights,*' 
When branch and bough aro all laden with geaM, 
And sparkle like Eastern diadems; . • 

And the sun sheds a blase of dassling light^ 
On ruby^ opal, and diamond bright. ^

ST. GEORGE'S FLAG. 



St George for merry England, ho I up with the pemMm hrate, 
It hath streamed a'er many a oonquored land, o'er many a dialial 

wave; 
Up with the Rod-oroes banner I 'Ua a glorions aighi to aeOi 
The noblest flag that OTor flew, stream oat so (air and free. 

It floated o'er proud Acre's towers in days long psssed away. 
When Lion Rtohard led his host at the holy tomb to pray ; 
And still the Orosoont paler waned before Uie hallowed dgB| 
That flew in triumph o'er thy fields, ohl saorod Palestino. 

It oheered Old England's stslwart sons thro' Onmf§ hard worn 

fray. 
It waved o'er Royal Henry's head on Agincourt's proud day ; 
The sultry breath of sunny Spain its orimBon oroos has fanned, 
And gallant hosts have borne it on through India's burning land. 

Oh! many a flag of gaudier hue the fhnning broese may wave^ 
But none that bears a nobler name, more stainless or more bravo; 
None that hath led more dauntless hearts to battle for the rights 
None thai hath flown more proudly Vor tho orimsoo fleldof %|^i.

When flowers gemmed deUs and woodhadsi 

Hy blossom psssed away. 

How I chafed at the brilliant sonshine 

Flooding my lonely room, 
How I tomod from Uio sight of nators 

So fVill of life and bloom. 
How I longod for past wintry hoars 

With snow-flakes fallmg fast, 
And the little form <^ my norsling 

In my loying arms olaiqped. 

They put up eaoh tiny garment 

In an attio dhambor high, 
His ooral — hia empty oradle— 

That ihey might not meet my ey*i 
And his name was never ottered, 

Whatever eaoh heart might feel, 
For they wished that the woond in my besom 

Might have time to elose and heaL

His stately front has endured the brunt 

Of Scythian rock and gale, 
Am the yengofal yean clashed their 107 spean 

On the b(M8 of his glaneing mail ; 
Whea he steps in his pride ftmn his HaUs m wide 

He laughs with a wild refirain, 
And the Bifins start firom the ioebog's hearty 

And echo his laugh again. 

Then, hi t fbr the stonUi Ac. 

When the woods are stirred hj the aatlend bsdl, 

He oomes like a Nimrod bold, 
Aikd the forest groans as hii mighty toosi 

Swoop down on the startled fold ; 
In his mantle white he defies the Ni^t^ 

With the air of a King so free : 
Then hurra for the runOi the North-Sng^s nM^ 

For his sons, his sons aro we. 

Then, hi I for the sUHrm, Ac.

Calm is the evening. Not a ripple stirs 
The crystal waters of yon limpid stream, 
That blushes deep beneath the last bright ray 
The sun has left at parting, and which throws 
A loTcly radiance round. Not e'en the breeie 
Buffles a moment one pure tranquil ware. 
But breathes soft whisp'ring music throu^ the woodsy 
Bending^ the flowers on the moMj shores^

" Qood night, dear Willie," his inotlior said| 
As she laid hiiu down in his cradle bed, 
And folded the ooverlot, soft and warm, 
Around his delicate little form. 

" Oood-night, mamma," the child replied, 
As his mother bont o'er the cradle side, 
And, clasping her arms around his neck, 
Imprinted a kiss on her darling's cheek; 

While hor beating heart, uplifted high, 
With all of a mother's fervency. 
Sought aid of an All-sufficient arm 
To shield her innocent boy from harnL 

The morning has dawned, as oft before ; 
The robins are chirping around the door; 
And oflcn in wonder his mother hath said, 
« What keeps little Willie so long in his bed?

And ripples the broad, bright mirrof 
Of the river's sleeping flood ;

It steals o*er the dusty groand| * 

And it lingers in garden alleys 
With a weird and ghost-like sound; 

And the pines give forth a murmuTi 
Like a many-voioM prayer, 

From the aisles of tho forest swelling 
On the wings of the evening air. 

Where the liloo wreaths are densest 

It plays 'mid the scented gloom } 
Whore the thorn blossoms cluster 

It breathes a rich perfume ; 
In the grass of the waving meadow 

It gambols wild and free ; 
And a store of sweets it bringoth 

From the distant flowery lea; 
It gathers the thousand odors 

Of leaf, and tree, and flower, 
To shed o'er the mystio beauty 

Of the balmy vesper hour.

And m J rarest treasure lost ; 
In the country of the holy.

There my friends will never leave m^

Though the billows lave my footBtepl^

I bare my pulseless bosom 

To tho cold und ruthless wave, 
For tho faith that nerves my spirit 

Bids dotiance to tho grave. 

Now a light gleams o'er tho waters, 

From tho bright and holy land, 
And the king in all his beauty 

Gently leads me by the hand ; 
The sting of death is over, — 

Earthly friends, a long adieu I 
I am passing o*or the riyor,

My footfiteps press where, oenturics ago, 

The Red-Men fought and conquered; lost and ^ 
Whole tribes and races, gone like lost year's so^ow, 

Have found the Eternal Hunting Orounds, and mn 
The fiery gauntlet of their active days, 

Till few are left to tell the mournful tale: 
And those inspire us with such wild amase. 

They seem like spectres passing down a vale 
Steeped in uncertain moonlight, on their wi^ 
Towards some bourn where darkness blinds tho day, 
And night is wrapped in mystery profound. 

We cannot lift the mantle of the past : 
We seem to wander over hallowed ground : 
We scan the trail of Thought, but all is overoast

Blown out era half consumed.. 

Dear lights, tho mist grows odder;.

<< Thy heart is growing older.

Enough, that manhood's morning 

^Bevealed its joy with you.
