A SeniDitr Shower.
The rain is o'er how dense and bright
Yor pearlv clouds reposicu lie !
Cloud alter cloud, a glorious siht.
Contrasting with the deep blue sky !
Iu grateful silence earth receives
The general blessing ; Iresh and lair,
Each flower expands its little leaves, '
As glad the common jjy lo share.
The soften 'd sunbeams pour around
A lairy light, uncertain, pale ;
The wind blows cool, (he scented ground
Is breathing oders ou the gale.
Mid yon rich clonds, voJuptdous pile,
Melhinks some spirit ot the air
Might rest to taze below a while,
Then tutu to bathe and revel there.
The sun breaks forth from ofTihe scene,
Its floating veil ol mist is flnn ;
And all the wildernees ol green
Willi trembling drops ot light is hung.
Now gaze on nature yet the same
Glowing wiih lite, by breezes lanu'd,
Lnxurieui. lovely, as she came,
Fresh in her youth, Irom God's own hand.
Hear the rich music of that voice,
Winch sounds from all below, above ;
She calls her children lo rejoice, i
And round them throws her arms of love.
Drink in her influenre low-born care,
And all ihe train of mean desire,
Refuse to breai he this holy air,
And 'mid this living light expire.
