Troubadours; and by those who are familiar with the manners of chivalry, and with the history of the ancient Provençal poets, it will not be considered as an overcharged picture of the gallantry and fashion of that romantic period. Jeffrey Rudel has been celebrated by Petrarch.
A MORNING PIECE.
BRISK Chanticleer his matins had begun,
And thrice he hail'd the dawn's ambiguous light:
He lent new perfume to the breath of the south ;
Behind him came Health from her cottage of thatch,
First of the village Colin was awake,
And thus he sung, reclining on his rake:
Dance beneath yon maple-tree;
In her cleanly home-spun vest.
The abbey-bells in wakening rounds
The warning peal had given;
Her morning hymn to Heaven.
STUDENT, vol. i. p. 274.
I have omitted the eighteen subsequent lines of this poem, as being much inferior to their predecessors. Smart, the author of this beautiful imagery, communicated several poetical pieces to the Student, of which I have inserted in this place and in No. 67, a portion of two hymns.
