When hope, lo our enchanted gaze,
Its bright and gorg’ous prism displays,
And mocks the urchin's wand'ring view
With visions of fantastic hue ?
Who, but would be a child again,
Nor deem such bright delusions vain ?
Who would not flee from toil and strife-
The dull realities of life,
To taste the exulting joys of youth?
Blest age of innocence and truth!
'Tis in that season of life's spring,
That passion first unfolds her wing:
Then glows the cheek with love's first blush;
Then throbs the heart with the warm gush
Of feelings fresh, sincere, and pure;
Feelings, which time cannot restore
To manhood's tainted bosom, riv'n
By passions fierce, and madly driv'n
To toil and anguish, vice and woe,
Till pierc'd by death's last welcome blow.
Yet for our life's declining day,
To brighten its expiring ray,
Some calmer pleasures yet remain,
Some fainter joys their hold retain ;
Wife, children, friends, their ties combine,
And round our hearts united twine.

Philosophy is but dry bread : men will not live upon it, however wholesome : they require the succulent food and exciting cup of Religion. We differ in bodily strength, in compactness of bone, and elasticity of sinew ; but we are all subject to the same softness, and nearly to the same distemperature, in the nobler ani. mators of the frame, the brain and blood. Thus it is in creeds: the sage and simple, the ardent enthusiast, and the patient investigator, fall into and embrace with equal pertinacity the most absurd and revolting tenets.

LINES

WRITTEN FOR A YOUNG LADY'S ALBUM.

Dear Caroline, the boon you ask
Demands from me no easy task.
Let others frame the lofty line,
And round their brows the laurel twine,
In me the poet's fire is dead,
Fancy and love, and feeling filed.
The gush of feeling, and love's thrill
Wax faint, when gath’ring years distil
Their poppies on the heart; and mind
Partakes the dnom to man assigned,
Sinking in gradual, slow decay.
Time quenches reason's brightest ray,
And withers fancy's fairest bloom :
" And who can then that light relume ?"
These are the springs, the living springs,
Where the muse laves her glittring wings,
And plumes them for a flight sublime,
Above the mould’ring things of time.
The warm line, gushing from the heart,
Love's impulse can alone impart.
Touch'd by bright fancy's magic wand,
Before the enraptured poet stand
“ The forms of things unknown," and shed
A glorious halo round his head.
“When passion owns its secret stings,"
By feeling taught, the poet sing3
In melting strains, the plaints of woe,
Writhing with sorrow's recent blow;
In verse of fire, the throes of rage,
Revenge, despair, those foes that wage
With human bosoms ceaseless strife,
And darken all the shades of life.
In me, alas! those founts are dry;
From me those fairy visions fly.
From youth alone you might obtain,
To grace your book, a fitting strain.
With fancy, yet undimm'd by years,
With bosom, yet unscath'd by cares,
With feelings pure, and free, and strong,
Youth pours at will the poet's song:
Who, that recalls that time Elysian,
When life is all a fairy vision,
When music breathes in ev'ry sound
And all is light and fragrance round,

Where smooth Ohio's waters pour,

Through fertile vales their limpid wave, 'Tis said the streams possess the pow'r

To turn to stone whate'er they lave. Thus oft as time's strong currents roll,

The coming ills of life revealing, The cold stream petrifies the soul,

And indurates each softer feeling. Thus as our cares, our griefs increase,

And time dissolves each tender tie, It kindly bids our sorrows cease,

Numb'd by the touch of a pathy.

But yet the tear that promptly flows,

Beams lovely on the cheek of youth ; Shed for its own or others' woes,

Those dews the throes of anguish soothe. More beautiful, because so rare,

The flow'r of feeling loveliest blows In age's bosom, lone and drear,

A gem of beauty on its snows. What though its frozen surface deck

No plants, in sunnier climes that growThough waste and dreary, yet this speck

Of verdure shows the warmth below,

Like that unwith'ring flow'r whose hues

On Scotia's snow-clad peaks expand, Winter's cold breath its lints renews,

As when by gales of summer fann'd.

Though all its hopes and joys expire,
