t P BRATTLEBORO, Vt, THURSDAY, DECEMBER 30, 1847 From Graham' i Magazine for January. THE LAND OF DIIKAMS. BY WM. t. ntlVANT. A mighty realm is the Land of Dreamt Willi sleeps that hang in tin; twilight sky, ,And weltering oceans and trailing streams, . That gleam where the dusky valleys lie. Bui over its shadowy horder flow Sweet ray from tlio world f dhdlcss'tnorii, And the nearer mountains catch the glow, And flowers in the nearer fields are horn. The souls of the happy dead repair From their bowers of light to that bordering land, And walk in the fainter glory there, With the souls of the living hand in hand. One calm, sweet smile in that shadowy sphere, From eyes that open on earth no more One warning word from a voice once dear How they rise in the memory o'er and o'er! Far off from those hills that shine with day, And fields that bloom in the heavenly gales, The I.nid of Dreams goes stretching away To dimmer mountain and darker vales. There lie the chambers of guilty delight,...
