Come, Mary, let us seek the hill
Where blooms the gorse along the lea,
Or sit beneath its greenwood tree;
There mingle converse kind and free,
Or, blest in Nature's harmony,
The gleams of joy that gladden life,
Its gathering clouds may soon o'ercast,
The lovelier moments while they last ;..,
The tears that spring from sorrows past
As snows piled by the mountain blast
Then come and brush the vernal dew
By mossy glen and mountain hoar,
Around that lone and lovely shore
O come, ere youth's gay morn is o'er,
And darker cares, unknown before,
No “ chance or change" shall ever chill,
Be deaden'd by life's darkest ill ;
But come and let us climb the hill,
And wander by the wizard rill,
TO A LADY CARESSING AN INFANT.
O TAKE not, dearest Anna, from my view
That lovely child, which in thy fond embrace
Smiling delighted, lends more winning grace Unto thy airy form and blooming hue! ... 'Tis sweet on these young eyes of liquid blue
To gaze, ... and in the features of a face,
Where nought of ill hath stampt unhallow'd trace,
While he with tremulous hand would pat our cheek,
To him who heareth those whose hearts are pure and meek.
