ODE TO PITY.

Fatigued with Life's oppreffive round;

Console thyself, for Death is nigh,
Her sacred stream, by Nature's laws,

And sweet repose is in his bofom found. To mitigate the sense of ill,

Observe, upon the tumbling surge, Some drops of pure delight distill.

Yon little bark, the tempests urge, The conscious heart, that throbs and yearns, At length attains the peaceful bay, Upon itself observant turns;

Secure from winds and stormy tides, W th honcft pleasure glows to find

Safe in the tranquil port it rides. Humanity within enshrin'd;

- Where rocks arise, where whirlwindsrarey And counts each drop of that bleft thow'r, Life is, alas ! that troubled sea, An off’ring worthy of the pow'r.

The harbour where they near approach Thou moist-ey'd Mule (whose footstep loves, the Grave! Not in a gaudy day,

Behold the mother's anxious love Nor where the painted minions of the spring Requires her little child to prove; Their fascinating fragrance fling;

Life to himself, his idle pow'r ; But late in shades, and cypress groves, With Itep unsure, and vain alarms,

Beneath o'erhanging rocks to stray ; Reeble he runs, with vul-ftretch'd arms, Or those deserted glades to seek,

Leaps on her neck, with panting breath, Where tomblers ghosts glide by, and shriek :) And feels his weakness now no more. Hence the cliaste thrillings, which enhance The infant's man--the tender parent, Death! Thy scenes above Mirth's festive dance.

He, that could first creation give, Hence to thy sad and solemn shows;

Sends forth a breath, and lo! we live! Thy strongly.imitato I woes,

When he recals that breath, we dio. In search of pure delight,

What wonder, is 'tis swiftly past The good and tender flock to weep:

Wonders the quiv'ring foliage why Go, the soul's mistress, teach the gay

It cannot fix the wind that loves to rove | (Whom Itern misfortune hath not taught) To feel, and pity as they ought,

Hast thou not often found to go Shew them that life lias clouds and storms, Time ling'ring on, and much too Aow? Á fun that burns, as well as warms,

Because 'uis Time that brings us Death And eyes that ache with grief, while they un

Death is the goal, where Nature tends, conscious play.

of life impatient where the ends. But ah! fad Gouders, go not nigh

Why wishes man to-morrow come? The haunts of real Misery,

It is because to-day we breathe, The soul that's wounded ill can bear

And that to-morrow brings us to thic tomba The pictur’il image of despair.

And age, that cruelly destroys And wounds which lenient time has heal'd,

Each social bliss the soul enjoys; Or dull oblivion's veil conceal'd

Weakness, and pain, and error too, . Will bleed afresh when chou art view'd.

Sweet Deep, that charms our woes to peacey Nor let thy vifions, niuch too rude

(Forgotten, with ourselves they cease :) On Love's fequefter'd walks intrude.

Ennui, to which this life's a Dave, What canst thou teach the gentle breast

All-all combining, seem to woo,
By that foul-fufl'oing pow'r políess'd,

Habituate, and lead us to the grave.
But frantic fears, and tenfold care,
Heart-rending horror and despair.

And who would bear perpetual (pleen? Whatever faial tale is shewn,

Lers dreadful had the exit been! The anxious lover views his own;

'Tis Nature bids the fear arise, In that dark glass bis fortune reads,

That we may not too quickly leave And finks heneath a fancy'd doom ;

This scene, where all are doom'd to grieve'; His ryniph, and not Monimia, bleeds, On utmost Life's dread bound'ry thews, 'Tis the chat groans in Juliet's tomb.
