The peopled mart, the verdui'd bower,

And drag his purpled honours down,

I view thee on the Belgic strand,
Firm pillar of the gulphy plain,
That from the bosom of the main
Snatch'd the thin foil, and fpiead the sedgy land.
In life's green hour, and nature's prime,
Thro 1 wide Columbia's vari'd clime,
I fee thy flarry banners flow ;
This hand the olive-bough extends,
While that her p'ny shore defends,
And wards with piereingeyethe meditated blow
In laurel'd majeftv serene,
Puie source of ev'ry boon, in ev'ry age a Queen !
But hark ! the rending prayer of pain /
What female flirieks aflault the car !

And all thy great endow ments claim,

Deform'd thy hrav'n illumin'd face,
And ev'iy vcftal charm prophan'd !
To the vile rabble's rage rcfign'd
The lustre ot ihy poliHi'd miud !
Can Gallia's impious sons defame
The viitues of ihy fainted name,
And heap th' aflafliu's deeds on thee!

High-seated on a recking thione,
They raise the liccns'd hand, and bend th' un-
Ah ! fee the fam'd difcov'rer \ bows

And clasps those daring hands tn vain,
Which the world's circle widely bound.

No more that fateful flory tell,

In the warm bosom of repose,
His wile, his children, circling round !
By those, at whose behelfc he trae'd
The hostile plain, the foodlefs wafle,
While ev'ry outrag'd virtue flies,

Pierc'd by ingratitude, to eaith he
While the mad clamours of the thankless

Amid the horrors of that morn
How was thy form degraded seen !
With all thy modi ft veftmenis torn,
How chang'd thy love-inspiring inein !
Around t hat brow 's m <jest c height
ev'ry milt that dames the night,
And midst those locks oi fl «wing gold,
An azure wreath of serpents roll'd,
And Irom that lip's ethereal balm,
And on that bread, with bounty warm,
Fell the red drops of treafui'd health,
W r hich from their rubi'd fountainsflow'd
In gems, whose blushing lultre glow'd
Rich with a Nation's vital wealth.

But midfl mad an arch's deaf'ning roar,
Ne'er can thy seraph strain be heard.

And flill his willing talk "prolong,
And soothe him with thy patient song,
Then lead him to the bower of health,
And charm him with the dieam ot wealth.

And feed his feeling foul with praise,
And all his paflion'd mind txeite

And Justice, with her poizing scale,
Deaf to the villain's bribeful tale.
Unchanging Faith and Friendship
And Love's best union of the mind,
With ev'ry hope, and ev'ry tie,
Which elevates Humanity.
To thee the timid Minflrel sings,
For thee awakes the Humbling firings ;
Still round her foft submitted mind,

While in thy finile of bounty blest,
She hails thee, Sov er eign of the West.
