Is lowly poverty thy lot?
Thou still can'st seek the humble cot
To dry the widow's lonely tear,
The orphan's drooping heart to cheer.
Smooth the sad pillow of decay,
And point to happier worlds the way;
Then shall the sunshine in thy breast
Prove—that to bless—is to be bless'd!
A Requiem.
Eest thou in peace! Life's toil is o'er;
Its joys, its sorrows are no more.
Those ne'er to taste, or these deplore,
Best thou in peace!
The loves of yonth, the pride of age.
No more thy fancy can engage;
Closed now to thee is Life's last page.
Rest thou in peace!
No more on thee the storms shall blow.
The summer's sun, the winter's snow,
Alike to thee who sleep'st belo.v:
Rest thou in peace!
The Arab's Lamentation for the Death of his Steed.
Now thy labours are o'er,
And the dark grave hath found thee.
[ shall see ihee no more.
The cold earth is around thee :
Thou art fallen at length;
No more shall I find thee,
In the pride of thy strength,
Fling the desert behind thee.
Oft have I been borne,
Tlirougli the wilderness rushing.
O'er my foemen in scorn,
In their impotence crushing
The hosts that assail'd —
Tliough in agony straining.
Thy strength has prevail'd —
The sharp spear disdaining.
