since thy very'earliest youth, •
'l've loved thee fondly, and with truth!
• rve watched thy progress day by day,
Ind often sought thy flight to stay ; •
Yet all in vain ! with matchless art,
"You lured, Yet trifled with my heart;
And now, just like a sad coquette,
Yeih r liave me coldly, in a pet ! .

Thy raptures o'er our senses rush,
But when old age has thrown his dart,
• Thy icy chillness thrills the heart !
When youth's spring-flush was ony bio •
You . breathed me many a fervent vow ;
You gaily chased life's laughing hours,
And wreathed for me a crown of flowers;
You twined the woodbine with the rose, •
To deck the bower of my repose ;
Ahl when their perfume fended my hair
I little dreamed a thorn was there !
Thy Buthmer came! and ripened, charms,
. Filled my rapt sotil with new alarms ;
Alack the day! how oft in June,
With none for witness but the moon, -
Unless a straggling star or two,
:To Watch our pranks playedTeek-a boo,
I've-gazed upon that placid brow,
• So changed by storms and coldness now,
.' And thou has brought thy feast of fruits,
Attended by the night-bird's hues,
Whose thrilling carol filled my heart,
With joys I hoped would never part ! •
• tut ah ! those notes, those fruits and flow ,
Hate faded like life's sunset hours ;
Have flitted o'er the magic scene •
And left—the shadow of a dream !
Thy Autuinn came'. in varied hue
Dressed with the spanglets of the dew,
lii thousand smiles thy form was deck'd,
• To gild the canker of neglect ; •
And Bacchus lent his coronal,
To hide the chillness of thy fall ;
Thy every former gift hail fled—
The birds were hush'd, the roses dead !
Mid glared from thine averted eye,
. The frosts of infidelity !
• The very veins of earth were bound,
'ln icy fetters to the groand
Next Winter rush'd l its stormy howl
vented 'neath snow-dad cowl ;
Bowed floWn by years, thou sought'st arNo

And-those who clung to thee fur life
" As seamen 'mid the tempest s strife,
And hoped thy smile of gladness, sure
Would be -their wayworn cynosure,
. And thought that time's eternal wing, I
Would waft thee to a second spring, I
Found hope, and peace, and comfort wr.
On the cold rocks. of time's neglect ;
Felt joy, and love, and conquest o'er
AU stranded on life's flinty shore!
Capriclbus year! thou can't not claim
One tear to 'mourn so frail a namO!
Thou cariet not show a single vow, !
Which is of force to hold me now ; •
No iingle . pang, within can stir
A memory of the things that were ; -
I love thee not ! I heed thee not !
From off my heart thy name I'll blot !
I'll drowh al.rmer love of thee,
In Chriqmas cheer and revelry !
Then bring the bowl ! come fill it high,C
Well drink to time, Which ne'cr shall 4e!
And in the jot-mid pledge of wine,

and tremulous, and seemed to strugg'e in his
