Life's road led me cautiously view,
And no longer disdain to be wise;
But redden such paths to pursue,
As my reason should hate or despise;
So crown both my age and my youth.
Let me mark where religion has trod;
Since nothing but virtue and truth
Can reach to the throne of my GodJ
Youili and Age.
Health runs quick tiirough youth's
full veins.
Age is weak and fraught with pains;
Youth's fresh cheek is smooth and
Age's pale and withered;
Youth's clear eyes are strong and
Age's dim as glimmering light!
Y'outh is active, warm and bold.
Age is sluggish, tim'rous, cold;
Youth of ardent hope is full.
Age's hopes are few and dull;
Youth with warm emotion glows.
Age's buried is in snows;
Youth life's rarest joys would have.
Age does only ask a grave.
Anne Maria Porter.
The Fall of the Leaf.
See the leaves around us falling,
Dry and wither'd to the ground;
Tims to thoughtless mortals calling.
In a sad and solemn sound.
"Sons of Adam, (once in Eden,
When, like us, he blighted fell).
Hear the lecture we are reading,
'T is, alas! the truth we tell.
Virging, much, too much presuming
On your boasted white and red;
View us late in beauty blooming,
Number'd now among the dead.
Youtlis, though yet no losses grieve
Gay in health, and many a grace,
Let not cloudless skies deceive you;
Summer gives to autumn place.
Yearly in our course returning.
Messengers of shortest stay;
Tims we preach tliis truth concern-
Heav'n and earth shall pass away.
On the tree of life eternal,
Man, let all thy hopes be staid:
Which alone, for ever vernal,
Bears a leaf that shaU not fade."
Dr. Horne.
