Come, Mary, let us seek the hill

Where blooms the gorse along the lea,
And wander by its wizard rill,

Or sit beneath its greenwood tree;

There mingle converse kind and free,
Or read some bard's inspired strain,

Or, blest in Nature's harmony,
To sweeter silence sink again.

The gleams of joy that gladden life,

Its gathering clouds may soon o'ercast,
But let'us snatch from care and strife

The lovelier moments while they last ;..,

The tears that spring from sorrows past
Down Pleasure's bright’ning cheek may flow,

As snows piled by the mountain blast
In fresh’ning foods are felt below.

Then come and brush the vernal dew

By mossy glen and mountain hoar,
And mark the billows trembling blue

Around that lone and lovely shore

O come, ere youth's gay morn is o'er,
Ere the heart's vivid spring is gone,

And darker cares, unknown before,
Condemn the breast to sigh alone !
Yet sure affection's fervid glow

No “ chance or change" shall ever chill,
Nor e'er the soul's ingenuous flow

Be deaden'd by life's darkest ill ;

But come and let us climb the hill,
Whep blooms the gorse along the lea,

And wander by the wizard rill,
Or sit beneath the greenwood tree.

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,
To read, “ whate'er is lovely, pure, and true.”
My Anna ! even thus, when life was new,
We wont to hang around the old man's chair,

While he with tremulous hand would pat our cheek,
And tell how youth doth fade like morning dew !
And teach us how to frame our infant pray'r

To him who heareth those whose hearts are pure and meek.
