inpi alien The condition of the peasantry
of Scotland, the happiest, perhaps that Prov
idence ever allowed t the children of labor,
was not surveyed and speculated on by him
as the field of poetry, but as the field of his
own exist,i,.oo; and he chronicled tho events
that passed tie re, not merely as food for his
iui.iii;iuati m as a p et, but as Jlin.d for his
heart as a man. lienor-, when inspired to
compose poe try, po try came gushing up
from the well of his human auctions, and he
had nothing more lo do, than to pour it, like
streams irri;at ini' a meadow, in many a
cheerful tid; over the drooping Mowers and
fading verdure of life, imbui d with vivid
pei (( li-iiis, warm i'-f lings, and strung pas

would ml Ihm indulge his limey nheie he
had felt felt so poiguaiilly , a. I the agonies
and nil the transmits of lie lie looked
nround him, and when he s:,v the Miioke of
the cottage rising upquiitiy and unbroken to
heaven, he knew, for he had seen and bliss
ed it, the quiet joy and unbroken contentment
that slept below! and when he saw it driven
and dispersed by the winds, he knew also hut
too well, for too sorely had he felt them, those
agitations and disturbances uhieh had shook
him till he wept on his chaff hed. In read
ing his poetry, therefore, we know what un
substantial dreams are all those ot the golden
age. Hut hli-s beams up'u us with a more
subduing brightness through the dim melan
choly that shrouds lowly h.e; and uln n the
peasant Burns lists up in hi? might as Hums
the poet, and seen to derive ail that might
J personal power, from all the circumstances

his humblest lines ulltet us! Often, too of
j ten, as we hear him singing, we think that
we .-oo him sulbnugf " Most musical,
most melancholy " he often is, even in his
inert inieut! in him alas! the trunspotts of
inspiration are but too closely allied with re
ality's kindred agonies! '1 ho strings of his
lyre sometimes )ield their finest music to the
sighs of lemoiso or lepentance. Whatever,
therefore, be the laults or detects of the poet
ry of Burns and no doubt it has many it
has, beyond all that ever was written, this
greatest of all merits, intense, file-pervading,
and life-breathing truth.
