" The Undiscovered Country."
BY E. C. STEDMAN.
Could we but know
The land that ends our dark, uncertain travel,
Where Me those happier hills and meadows low
Ah, If beyond the spirit's Inmost cavil
Aught of that country could we surely know,
Who would not go 1
Might we but hear
The hovering angels' high imagined choros,
Or catch, betimes, with wakeful eyes and clear,
One radiant vista of the realm before ns-J
With one rapt moment given to see and hear,
Ah, who would fear?
Were we qnlte sure
To find the peerless friend that left us lonely,
Or there, by some celestial stream as pure,
To gaze In eyes that here were lovely only
This weary martal coil, were we quite sure,
Who would endure?
