SONG OP THE FOBOE.
We give below thb "Bong or the Forge' a
spirited and powerful poem. Bien compared
with Schiller's famous "Song of th Bell," It re
mains unsurpassed. Many years ago it went the
round of the papers, starting, we believe, from
BlaekuoodiS Magasine. It then took a Rip Van
Winkle's nap, preserved, however, in tbe admi
ring memories of the discriminating, till, after
circumnavigating the, globe, It lately reappeared
In the Calcutta Magazine, whence It .was copied,
as original, by some American Journals of more
UsCe than reading. We reprint it, to preserve
it in onr paper, "for the long day," ai we hope.
Obsarre, and admire too, the masterly variation
of the tone, in the genial description of the fa
tare coarse of the food-giving plough, in tbe
dream of the mysterious wanderings of the an
tkor't chain, and In the sonl-stlrrlcg anticipations
of the flashing of the emord:
Clang, clang I the massive anvils ring
Clang, clangl a hundred hammers swing)
Like the thunder-rattle of a tropic sky
The mighty blows still multiply j
Bay, brothers of the (luiky brow. '
What are youf'sttong arms forging nowf
Clang, clang we forge the coulter now
The coulter of the kindly plough;
Sweet Mary, mother, blest our toll ;
"May 1U broad furrow still unbind ,
To gental ralus, tp sun and wind,
The most benignant tail.
Clang, clang our coulter's count shall ba
On many a sweet and sheltered lea,
By many a streamlet's silver tide,
Amidst the ,aong of the morning birds,
Amidst tbe low of the sauntering terds,
Amidst spft b sexes which do stray
Through woodbine hedges and "sweet May,
Along the green hill's tide.
When regal autumn's bounteous hand
With wide-spread glory clothes tho land;
When to tbe valleis, from tbe brow
Of each resplendent slope, Is rolled ,
A ruddy sea of living g-ili,
We bUss-pwe bless tbe Ptocoa.
Clang, clang aguln, my mate3r what glows
beneath tbe hammers' potent blowsl
Clink, clank we forge th. Guirr CaaU
Which bears the gallant vessel's strain,
('Midst 'etormy wind and adverse tides;
Secured by this, the good ship braves
The rocky roadstead, and the waves
Which thunder on her sides.
'Anxious n6 more, tbe merchant seel
The mist drive dark before tbe breeie,
The storm-cloud on tbe hill ;
Calmly he Teats, though far away
In'bolsterous climes his vessel lay,
. Baliant on our skill.
Say, oa what land, theie links shall sleep,
fathoms beneath the solemn deep T
'By Afrlo'l pestilential shore
i By many an iceoerg, lone ana noar
By many a palmy western Isle,
Basking in springe perpetual smile :
By stormy Labrador?
Say, shall they feel tho vessel reel,
When to the balUry's deadly peal
The crushing broadside make- reply?
- Or el.e, as at the glorious Nile,
Hold grappling shlps,'that strive tbe while
For death or victory.
Hurrah I Cling clang I onca more, wbat glows,
Park brothers of tbe foige, beneath
Tbe Iron tempest of your blows,
The furnace's red breath?.
Clang, clang a burning torrent, clear
And. brilliant, of biignt sparks, Is poured
Around and up In the dusky air,
As pur hammers forge tbe Swoap.
The sword I a, name of dread; yet when
Upon the freeman's thigh 'tis bound,
While for his altar aqd bis hearth,
While for the, land that gave blm birth,
The war-drums roll, the trumpets sound,
How sacred is It then I
Whenever for the truth and tight
Is flashes in the van of fight;
Whether in some wild mountain pass,
As that where tell Leonldas ;
Or on sunie sterile plain and stern,
A Uarston or a Bannockburn ;
Or mid fierce crags and bursting rills,
Tbe SwlUer'a Alps, gray Tyrol's hills;
Or, as when sunk the Armada's prldi,
It gleams above tbe stormy tide;
Still, still, whenever the battl word
" It Liberty when men do Hand
For fustics and thiir native land ,
Then Heaven bless the bwonc "
