THE PALISADES/
By WlUiam J* McClure*
There a stream rolls to ocean’s surge,
Adown Coiuiubia’s eastern side,
From Adirondack's peaks emerge
Its drops, to spread in glory wide.
Its wave not the only charm,
For sweetly rest the plains and glades
Around, and rise o’er flood and larm,
The high and lordly Palisades.
Their feet are laved within the stream,
Lise fortress-walls the dark rocks rear,
Sublime they are, and proud they seem
ith brows that awe strike as they cheer.
Unshaken by relentless storms,
Full brilliant are the crowning shades,
As morning’e gleam the landscape warms
And lights the caverned Pa Isaacs.
Reflected in the depths they link,
When earth with Sol's clear beam is blest;
Their giant shadows pall the brink,
As sunshine wanders farther west
’Tis peaceful ever by that shore—
Not yet the clang of war invades—
And wild birds unregarded soar
Above, aioundthe Palisades.
The Teuton’s bosom thrills with joy,
At mention of his lovely Rhine,
For mem’ry makes him still a boy
Ana picture scenes that always shine.
Grand Hudson rolling to, the main,
In recollection never fades;
The minstrel wakes a patriot strain,
It echoes down the Palisades!
*A high perpendicular range of rocks extending along
the Wt» ern shore o: the Hudson river northwardly from
its mouth, to the distance of twenty miles. VV. J McC.
