OH! SNATCHED AWAY IN BEAUTY'S

BLOOM.

Oh! SNATCHED AWAY IN BEAUTY'S BLOOM, On thee shall press no ponderous tomb;

But on thy turf shall roses rear

Their leaves, the earliest of the year;
And the wild cypress wave in tender gloom :

II.

And oft by yon blue gushing stream

Shall Sorrow lean her drooping head,
And feed deep thought with many a dream,

And lingering pause and lightly tread;
Fond wretch! as if her step disturbid the dead!
III.
Away; we know that tears are vain,

That death nor heeds nor hears distress :
Will this unteach us to complain?
- Or make one mourner weep the less?
And thou—who tellst me to forget,

Thy looks are wan, thine eyes are wet.

MY SOUL IS DARK.

I.

MY SOUL IS DARK-Oh! quickly string

The harp I yet can brook to hear ; And let thy gentle fingers Aling

Its melting murmurs o'er mine ear. If in this heart a hope be dear,

That sound shall charm it forth again; If in these eyes there lurk a tear,

'Twill flow, and cease to burn my brain :

II.

But bid the strain be wild and deep,

Nor let thy notes of joy be first : I tell thee, minstrel, I must weep,

Or else this heavy heart will burst ;

C

For it hath been by sorrow nurst,

And ach'd in sleepless silence long; And now 'tis doom'd to know the worst,

And break at once -or yield to song.

I SAW THEE WEEP--the big bright tear

Came o'er that eye of blue; And then methought it did appear

A violet dropping dew :
I saw thee smile—the sapphire's blaze

Beside thee ceased to shine;
It could not match the living rays

That fillid that glance of thine.

II.

As clouds from yonder sun receive

A deep and mellow dye, Which scarce the shade of coming eve

Can banish from the sky,
