TO

THE REV. LOUIS DWIGHT,

This Volume

IS AFFECTIONATELY INSCRIBED,

BY HIS KINSMAN,

THE AUTHOR.

MELANIE.

I stood on yonder rocky brow, *

And marvell’d at the Sybil's fane, When I was not what I am now.

My life was then untouch'd of pain ; And, as the breeze that stirr'd my hair,

My spirit freshened in the sky,
And all things that were true and fair

Lay closely to my loving eye,
With nothing shadowy between-
I was a boy of seventeen.
Yon wondrous temple crests the rock,

As light upon its giddy base,

* The story is told during a walk around the Cascatelles of

Tivoli.
