SIR H1U.\PHRY DAVY.
Did you ever hear of Sir Humphry
Davy as a poet ? As a ehymi-i. his fame
has spread over the eivil:ze'd world; but
it is not generally known that he had a
poetic, genitus of the highest order.
Southey, Coleridge. and otherq. said of
hirr., that had he. turned his attention to
poetry, he would have altained the first
It is said. by his biographer, that, lii.

perlhps, not to) lie regretted that he culti
vaited his talent for philosophical pursuits.
nI'; the world has been so largely benefitned
ly his investigations His s;fety laIp is
a riet.r of1'ring to the world, than all the
lpo-try orfHomer, .\ iton. and Byron.
Ilik poem, called - The Solis of

enntiful. I think. ns any in the Engrlh,6
laiguage. Will yon publish the follon% in.
Bright bursting throuih the awful veil of night
Thr innar- lams upoi; the ocean play:
The watery lillows shine % iih tretnbling :ight.
o here the swift breezes skim alon;. the sea.
The glimmering stars in you etherral plain
Grow 1:nle, and fade before thle lunar-beams;
Save where fair Venus. shining o'er the main
Conspicuous stil: with finter radiance gle'ams.
Clear as the azure firmrotment above.
Save where the white cloud floats upon the
Al' tranquil is ti e bosom of tLe grove.
Save where the zephyr warbles through the
Now the poor shepherd.wandern - go his home.
Surveys the darkening s.-ene with fearful eye :
On every greetn sees little elfin- roam
Atl haggard spritesalonthe mooibeams fly.
White Superstition rules th- vulzarsoul,
Forbids the ener gies of mano to rise.
Raised far above her low. her meann control,
Aspiring Genius seeks her native skies.
She loves the silent, solitary hours;
She loves the stilhiess of the starry night.
When. o'er the bright'ning view Selene pours
The soft ellulgence of her peusive light.
THE SWAY OF REASON.
Before her lucid, all-enlightenoing ray,
The pallid spiectres of the night retire;
She drive, the 'gloomy terrors far away,
And fills the bosom with celestial fire.
nspired by her, the sons of genius rise
Above all earthly thonghts, all vulgar care;
Wealth, power, and grandeur, they alike
Eraptur'd by the good, the great, the fair.
A thousnd varying joys to them belong,
The charms of tature and her choangefoil
Their's is the music of the vcrnal song ;
And their's the colors of the vernal plaitis.
Their's is the putrple-tinEed evening ray,
With all the radiance of the evenitng sky ;
There't is the splendor of thte'risen day,
Enshrined in glory by the stun's bright eye.
For thetm, the zephyr fans the odorons dale ;
For them the warbling streamlet softly floows;
Fur thema the Drynds shade the v'erdant vale ;
For them sweet Philomel attunes her woes.
To thema no wakeful moonb'eam shines in vain
On the dark bosom of the trackless wood;
Sheds its mild radiance o'er the desert plain;
Or sot'ly glides along the chrystal floods.
Yet not alone delight the soft and fair,
Alike the grander scenes of toatture move ;
Yet tnt alone her beauties claim their care,
The great, sublime, anod terrible they love.
When the red lightninigs though the ether fly'
And the white fotaming billows lash'.he shores;
Whlen to the ratitlinog thunders of' the sky,
The angry demont of the waters roars;
And when, untouched bhy. Natmt e's living fires,
No native rapture fills thoedrowsy soul,
Then former unges, ivitn theiltineful hyres,
Cin bid the fury oftthe poassi i flall.
By the blue taper's melancholy light,
Whilst all around thte idinight torrents pour.
And awful glooms beset the face of night,
They near the silent, solitary hour.
Alt! then, how sweet to pass the night away,
In silent converse with the Grecian page;
Whlilst hlomter tunes his eve'r-living hay',
n...r-anon lhtens to thn Ajhonian onsge.
To scan thelaws of Nature, to explorc
The lranmuii reign of mild Philosophy
Or on Newtonian wings sublime to soar,
Throngh the bright regions of the starr3 sky.
A TALE OF GRENADA.
