" r ive, of presontur, to our readers the follow.
iv i ens ekeble poem from the peu y oung la=
dye)srbo,our readers will sustain ue iu saying, is
anp aror inthis country
Dli:rine Journal.
God! what a night of horrors!
nice, rouse me ! Alt ! take o ff this fiendish fear
!areas fang-like on my soul, and crush
l'iseserpent‘dreatns, that curdle iu my brain
dawn this ghastly llorror, ere its eyes
Serren op ray ltfetilootli, and its reeking breath
810 me cry') pestilential poison, foul
Frits out thecharnel•house!
Ha! gone! Awake!
It that the son'' I will bethink me. alt'. [then?
What hideous dream was that which passed me
Oat nameless terror. wrapt in formless gloom,
Mita lurid, dark ?Mined phantasy - of belt
I am awake, the 'Morn is iip, and yet
A dark remembrance lies upon my soul,
Like the chance dropping of a raven's plumo
rpm a snow drift, white, and cold, and lone.
It is the shadow of that fearful dream,
That vision of the 'maim; demon-power,
Winch waste immortal being like to dust,
And digs a grave for the dissolving soul.
Nortarc,h of Madness, thou and thou alone,
Art " king of Terrors," strong to slay the soul,
And make Its s.hrin iug clay its sepulchre.
Dread despot of annihilation's realm, -
Thyself art uoyhingatess, a formless void,
Deep shrouded to a veil of vagueness, whiles •
Thy featutes seem a horny, chilling glare,
Whh caught thstingu;shable, save those eyes,
Which hold such deeps or desert vacancy,
At there is to soul within to tight
It, star-dame m their dreary solitudes !
And yet a mighty power is thine, thou ghoul.
Fan feeding on decaying seises, fiend
Atud sumpyrr, draining out the very streams
Of immortality. Stern judgment falls
Before thee senseless from his throne, and strouz.
Frond reason building up her columned arch
011efty tegument; fe.rgets lier work.
To de beneath its mins, when thy breath
O'encheelms it the the deserts pillard sands
Blare the simoou. Fancy's dancing light,
Theborealis of the mind, is quenched,
hnegitintion's mirror ground to dust,
And worse than all, tomb-breaker, thou. dost tear
The qua heart-graves of memory, and strew
Thetreasure of its buried loves abroad,
tramp!ed and debased.
'Tis agony
To see a spirit writhing io thy chains,
ds fint the struggling senses reel and strive •
To grasp onceinore a memory of a hope,
And vainly strive, as does the blasted tree.•
To clasp the fle — e - I ; 4 77 "wintl. Anon the brain
Beanies a faun hydra's nu - arming lair,
Whence, wild with terror, bursting,Rll its bars,
Toe stung and startled spirit, shrieking flies
Ou bloody, homing, pinions, flies, alas!
To smut and perish in thy black abyss. •
And idiot laughter echoes from its grave,
Hollow and fearful as the earth's first fall
Upon the coffin•lid End yet *tie joy
To thee, thou callous conqueror of the mind,
And thou diet gloat above the spoils of all
Tbalmonals deem immortal.
Dc . .; - 1h is kind ;
O'n! when the heart is weary, and the son!
I Wrung wab urstobedusss, she opens her arras
And Ike eolne soft-voiced tagel bids us test
In dreamless slumber on her bosom. Yes;
ieh death is kind, but thy devouring worms
In madness seize upon the living bruin.
