For the Polynesian.
On hearing the Wailing for the Dead.
I hear a moan a distant moan,
Come booming through the air
It tells of one to his long home gone,
Of a mortal freed from care.
It comes nor warning does it send
Fit simile of death!
It comes like man's unlooked for end,
Which snatches at once the breath.
Oh who can hear that dismal sound,
And feel not through his heart,
A solemn warning quickly bound
That he too must depart ?
Or who withhold the quiet tear
That sympathy would shed,
When grief and sorrow both are near,
When there's mourning o'er the dead.
Oh may we all this lesson learn,
By this sad warning given,
While yet the lamp of life doth burn
Prepare our souls for heaven.

THE STAR OF FRIENDSHIP.
List! the summer's gale is sighing
Mournfully at midnight hour,
Swelling now now gently dying,
Through the frequent wild wood bower.
High on the glorious arch of heaven
In pensive loveliness is risen
The silver moon; around her car
Glows many a little trembling star
Shedding a thousand streams of light
To cheer the loneliness of night.
There is a star 'mid all the rest
Which seems the brightest and the best,
Its beams as pure, so sweetly tender '
So mild and yet so rich in splendor '
Seems like a magnet fix'd on high
To catch the glance of friendship 'g eye
For 6ft I've watch 'ed its gold.m ray
Gleam faintly o'er departing day;
And then I've thought of friends afar,
And fancied thon their eves might rest
Upon that bright and lovely stair
And in the thought my soul was blessed.
It was a foolish fancy vet
That star 1 never can forget,
For e'en a lonely beam of light,
Tfiat glows alike on distant friends
IWay seem tints hallowed in their siht
Perrause its ray on each descends.
