Yes! thou shalt be my polar star,
O'er youth's bewildering tide, To lands of promised bliss afar, My bright and beaming guide.
My gauntlet's down, &c.
WEEP FOR THE HEIRESS. Weep for the heiress of the isles,
The brightest gem that ever shone; Oh, loudly raise the caronach,
Malvina, fair, is lost and gone! Oh! vainly shall the bridegroom come!
His joys, his hope, his pride is flown. Joy has, with her, forsook its home,
Malvina, dear, is lost and gone!
HE'S THE MAN TO WIN THE DAY.
With a heart brimful of woe,
Like a hero to the fray,
Will not let us answer nay.
MY HEART'S MY OWN. .
And so shall be my voice;
Till first he's made my choice.
And children still obey,
Against tyrannic sway? .
THE INDIAN DRUM.
The woods and rocks around
WHERE THE BEE SUCKS.
WHERE the bee sucks, there lurk I,
TO THE OLD-LONG LIFE.
To the fair-their face,
With eternal grace-
FUDDLE THY NOSE. MERRILY, merrily push round the glass,
And merrily troll the glee; For he who won't drink till he wink is an ass,
So, neighbour, I drink to thee. Merrily, merrily fuddle thy nose,
Until it right rosy shall be: For a jolly red nose, I speak under the rose,
Is a sign of good company.
BEAUTY AND WINE.
BRISK wine and lovely women are
Plenty, from her richest stores,
Her treasures on your bosom pours,
When your realm is truly bless'd,
Is by your loyalty confess'd. .
ANNA, THY CHARMS. ANNA, thy charms my bosom fires,
And waste my soul with care ;
When fatal to despair.
To hope may be forgiv'n!
So much in sight of Heav'n.
HONEST NATURE ANSWERS, NO. What is love ? an idle passion,
Sage advisers call it so ;'. Can I treat it in their fashion ?
Honest Nature answers, no. Wise ones, cease, in vain your preaching,
Age has turned your hearts to snow; Can I profit by your teaching ?
Honest Nature answers, no.
THE HARDY SAILOR. The hardy sailor braves the ocean,
Fearless of the roaring wind, 1 Yet his heart with soft emotion,
Throbs to leave his love behind. To dread of foreign foes a stranger,
Though the youth can, dauntless, roam, Alarming fears paint every danger, In a rival left at home.
The hardy sailor, &c.
BY SILVER STREAMS.
GIVE ME LIFE'S LARGEST CUP.
Give me then life's largest cap,
