The Complaint.
CAN he who pass’d life’s early morn se-
And late enjoy’d each sweet domestic
scene 3
Wito «ver true to friendship’s genial pow-
5 Oy
In happy converse pass’d the social hour;
Can he now doom’d to bid those scenes
Past joys forget, or present griefs dispel ?
No ! active mem’ry gives the sigh, the tear
While all those past delights still linger
© meat,
Oblivion, haste ! and cast thy mantle o’er,
Scenes late enjoy’d, tobe enjoy’d no more !
Cold poverty, and scorn, contempt and
Blast all the comforts of that recent date.
Can the sad youth whose bosom’s doom’d
to know,
And keenly feel the sharpest pangs of woe ;
Who to misfortunes, eavly made a prey,
Now wanders iriendless o’er life’s thorny
; way,
Whose oat afflicted, finds no kind re-
Whose eyes oft weep the burning tears of
Who feels more cares tho’ not yet reach’d
: life’s prime
Than those whose beads are silver’d’ o'er
with time, A ga
Whose soul now shudders on dispair’s
; dread brink,
Fearful beneath oppressive ills to sink ;
Can he thus deep in misery’s vortex harl’d,
Draw pity from 2 cold unfeeling world ?
While all forlorn these queries I impart,
A chilling negative prevades my heart,—
Have I no friends to soothe my deep dis-
And clothe this troubled mind with cheer-
fulness ? :
Row swift is man to smile
How slow the wretch’s sorrow to beguile !
Why on the happy does the world bestow |
bts smiles, and frown upon the child of woe ?
‘What tho’ to fortune, friends forever lost
One prize, one peerless blessing still I
: boast;
That prize—a heart that’s loyal, tender,
. warm;
And what like sympathy, that heart can
In the great plan soft ‘sympathy was mad
To soothe the afflicted, and the wretched,
aid A
If then for misery pity was design’d,
Wherefore, alas! does man no pity find ?
Shball'man, revolt from such a glorious plan,
And cease to love his fellow creature, man?
No ! Heaven forbid ! may friendship’s ties
yet join,
The tender sympathetic heart to mine ;
For what like kindred friendship can im.
pat :
Tha glow of pleasure to the aching heart.——
