«« The weary sea-bird screams afar i
Along the wave dire omens sweep :
From the veil'd sky no friendly star
Beams on the undulating deep !
Hark ! from the cliff's of distant shores
The Lom* emits his dismal cry—
The wave portentous
And speaks the threatening tempest nigh !
What guardian angel's watchful pow'r
Shall snatch me from the angry deep,
Or bid, in that tremendous hour,
The d«mon of the waters sleep ?
Or who, if on some desert wild
I drift, weak, famish'd and distress'd,
Shall hush the sorrows of my child,
And sooth Lavina's wounded breast ?
Sweet objects of my early love !
For you with aching heart I mourn ;
Far from your peaceful vale I rove,
Ah ! hopeless ever to return.
Yet should it he my happier lot

Secure within my humble cot,
