THE DEAD XTIR.
Fair buds of Summer time, are Bashing back
The last bright beam, from Sunset's golden
And merry sounds of gladness 511 the air,
As if, were over dry, grief's bitter tear!
All shows the frost of Winter's- reign dis
In mute obelsande, by sweet zephyrt- held,
Save that still ohamber of the Mother dead,
From whence, the signs of joy have frighted
But there, in vain, the soft, kind breezes
Fanning the ice- bound form of senstless
It may no; vt:he to life or love again,
To friendship's sinie-sor sorrow's fearful
The flow'rs she'loved t6"pluck, lie with'ring
Strown by her children's hands upon her
And clinging, childish, kiis'is wildly prest,
Upon the brow, forevermore, at rest
But stay-a strain of imutic sweeps thle sky,
Struck from the harps of cherub hosts on
No deeptoned notes'of mourning or of woe,
But one triuinphnt song of ceaseless flow :
While from the angel choir, the chorns leaps,
'Fear not; she is not dead-she only
Ah yes-she sleeps, and if her spirit meek,
Could touch those marble lips and bid then
They would but whisper low, her sweet
Her good night blessing, for the morrow's
The morrow, of a gi'eat, immortal Day,
Lit by that Sun's eternhl shining ray,
Which no'er goest6wn'-and where no shade
Is needed, for the calm, undazzled sight
