To a bright bud, with heart of flume, The angel of the seasons came, Took its green shenth and hood away And turned its forehead to the day, And from its blushing depths updrew A stream of incense pure as dew. ' He kissed its check, and went his way And then a form, with temples gray, Stood at its side, and taught it how To skrink, to shrivel, and to bow, On the brown mould its lip to lay, And blend with sweet things pass away. To a fair maid, in beauty's spring, Love's Angel came on radient wing, Nerved her light foot to skim the plain, And made her voice a music strain, And clasped his cestus o'er her breast, Till every cyeher power confessed. Another form, with shadowy dart, Pressed to her couch and chilled her heart; Pale grew the brow with roses fired, And her last breath in groans expired : But that which bound her to the ...

A situation of Diiliro dependence is seldom to be coveted ; and their willingness and strength were taxed to the uttermost by their hard, griping uncle, who, if lie did not treat them with actual unkindness, yet was a stern, exacting master, who made them feel that the bread they earned was not their own. For his mother sake, Robert never complained of his uncle's harshness, although he confided to aunt Jessy his sorrows, and often consulted her on the most probable means of bettering their condition. Miss Janet deeply sympa thized with the Inds, and often remonstrated with her brother on his over-bearing conduct. Hrr appeals to his better feelings we...
