This sweet little love song is not unworthy
of Burns. We cut it trom an English
Magazine. The author is John Imlah,
a young poet we need not add of high
the ni.un rED lassie.-
I lo'c thee, lassie! ah! how wcel,
Nae thocht can reach nac word reveal
As nane hac felt as nane canTccl,
My bonnie blue e'ed lassie, O.
I lo'c thee mair, sweet Isabel,
Than sign can show, or tongue can tell,
My love, my life, my second scl',
My bonnie blue e'ed lassie, O.
O! then by lip or look convey,
How I may wile thy heart away,
And I will bless thee night and day,
My bonnie blue ey'd lassie, O.
Say, shall I roose thy roguish moo',
Or praise thy pawkie e'en sac blue.
What shall I say! what can 1 do?
My bonnie blue e'ed lassie, O.
Should cares combine, and ills increase,
To wreck my pleasure, rest and peace,
Were life but torment death release,
My bonnie blue ey'd lassie. O.
For thy sweet sake for thine alane,
Through toil, and trouble, grief, and pain.
I'll live to lo'e, and ca my ain,
My bonnie blue e'ed lassie, O.
From an English Paper.
Speak! for thou hast a voice, perpetual
Lift up thy surges with some signal word.
Show where the pilgrims of the waters be,
For whom a nation's thrilling heart is stirr'd.
Down to thy waves they went in joyous
They trod with steadfast feet thy billowy way :
The eyes of wondering men beheld them
Swift in the arrowy distance where arc
Didst thou arise upon that mighty frame,
Mad that the strength of man with thee
And proud thy rival element to tame,
Didst swallow them in conscious depths alive ?
Or, shorn and powerless, hast thou bade
Their stately ship, a carcase of the foam?
Where still they watch the ocean and the
And fondly dream that they have yet a home ?
Doth hope still soothe their souls or glad
Is peace amid those wanderers of the foam?
Say, is the old affection yearning still,
With all the blessed memories of home?
Or, is it over? Life, and breath, and
The living feature and the breathing form?
Is the strong man become a thing of
And the rich blood of rank no longer warm?
Thou answerest not, thou stern and haugh
There is no sound in earth, or wave or air.
Roll on, ye tears! Oh what can comfort
To hearts that pant for hope, but breathe
Nay, mourner, there is sunlight on the
A gentle rainbow on the darkling cloud;
A voice, more mighty than the floods, will
The shore of tempests when tho storm is loud!
What, tho' they woke the whirlwinds of
Or rous'd the tempest from his eastern lair,
Or clave the cloud with thunder in its
Lord of the awful waters, thou wert there!
All-merciful! the fate-the day were
Thou didst receive them from the seething
Thy love too deep, Thy mercy too divine,
To quench them in an hour unworthy Thee.
If storms were mighty, Thou wert in tho
If their feet failed them, in Thy paths they
Man cannot urge the bark, or guide the
Or force the quivering helm, away from
