And terrible the storm that gathers o'er us;
But nothing, till that latest
Which severs thee from nature, shall

The Sun

The sun comes forth; each mountain
Glows with a tinge of rosy light,
And flowers, that slumbered through the night,  Their dewy leaves unfold;
A flood of splendor bursts on high,

Dirge

LM on the bosom of thy God,  Fair spirit, rest thee now
E'en while with ours thy footsteps trod,  His seal was on thy brow
Dust, to its narrow house beneath
Soul, to its place on high

To One Of The Authors Children

On His Birthday, 27 August, 1825
OU wak'st from happy sleep to play  With bounding heart, my boy

Thou hast no heavy thought or dream  To cloud thy fearless eye;

The Thunderstorm

EP, fiery clouds o'ercast the sky, Dead stillness reigns in air,
There is not e'en a breeze, on high The gossamer to bear
The woods are hushed, the waves at rest, The lake is dark and still,
Reflecting, on its shadowy breast, Each f...

Far o'er the mountains of the North,

The Pilgrim Fathers

The breaking waves dashed high On a stern and rock-bound coast,
And the woods against a stormy sky Their giant branches tossed;
And the heavy night hung dark,
The hills and waters o'er,

The Spanish Chapel

I made a mountain-brook my guide Thro' a wild Spanish glen,
And wandered, on its grassy side, Far from the homes of men
It lured me with a singing tone, And many a sunny glance,
To a green spot of beauty lone, A haunt for old romanc...

He Never Smiled Again

The bark that held a prince went down, The sweeping waves roll'd on;
And what was England's glorious crown To him that wept a son
He lived—for life may long be borne Ere sorrow break its chain;—Why comes not death to those who mourn

Through England's primrose meadow-paths, their way Towards spire and tower, 'midst shadowy elms ascending,
Whence the sweet chimes proclaim the hallowed day
The halls from old heroic ag...
