And from his iron sleep of ages starts
Young Science, and his new-expanding wings
Plumes all afresh. The busy street close-thronged
Humm’d with unceasing toil; a grove of masts
Rode on the level bay, and lov’d to stretch
*Their oary wings, and give to every clime
Unusual sweets, and pleasure not it's own.
Oh for the pen of freedom, to

pourtray
Oppression's downfall! from the cloud-capt hill, .
Where late in dark and dismal pride it frown'd
Upon the vale below, the castle falls
Dismantled; all it's battlements, it's towers,
It's moated bastions, and it's chains of brass
Loud thundering come; the starting dungeon op'a,
And, all it's hideous womb disclosing wide,
Shew'd where his solitary sojourn kept
He, the renounced of the world, or else
Forgotten from his birth. But now the time,
The time of freedom's come, and at the sight
The city rears it's pinnacles and spires,
Bends the long arch, and bids the terrace rise
Magnificent. The embosom’d village starts,
And musical along the echoing vale
The even-song-bell swells, where late alone
From the high turret it's far pealing sound
The sullen curfew swung. The trailing smoke
Ascends, which when the traveller from the hill
Slow journeying sees, he thinks him of his home,
His pleasant home that he has left behind,
His trees, his tufted orchards, and the gleam
Of sunset slanting on the yellow woods.
(It was a mournful thought, and yet it came
Sweet as the smile of Evening, for it spake
Of peace to those he left.) And now arise
Scenes of domestic comfort, mutual bliss
Without suspicion, friendship, and the tics
Of sweet society.Is ought so fair
In all the breathing prospects of the morn,
The long-withdrawing vale of azure hue,
The various blossom'd spring, and glittering gem3
That stud heaven's canopy; is ought so fair,
Laden with music when the summer-gale
Breathes on the rosy mead, to the glad ear
Of weary pilgrim welcome, (when he turns
His last sad look upon his native plain,
And scenes of childhood dear, each farewell sound,
Once more-and still once more--slow lingering on
Catching, till faint they dic;)-is ought so fair

[ocr errors]

As sweet society ?-And now had Aed
Grim Superstition, ali her opiate drugs,
Her idols gorg’d with blood, and rites obscene,
To Thor and fabled Woden, gods abhorr’d,
Borne to her murky cell: the human gore
Then wrung she from her clotted locks, and yell’d
All her accursed song. Oppression dropp'd
llis clanking fetters, and the scorpion whip
Crumbled to dust. His poniard stretch'd aloft,
Forth from his den and shaggy solitudes
The Spirit of freedom rose; then bar'd his arm,
And call'd upon the nations, and they heard
The echo of his trump. At that dread sound,
Bursting his sleep, in every breast awoke
The proud Divinity: athwart his brow
Stern Resolution sate; his eagle-wings
He imp'd afresh :-and now erect again
Man stands, his free-born dignity he claims
His birth-right of equality, the seal
By which he looked superior, and was crown'd
Master and Judge and Lord of all below.
