Disjointed Thoughts. Foe the Peak Hill Exfbess. Sing not of woman, born hi northern clime, With breast as icy as her mountain snow, Forher-mo bard would raise a lay sum blime, From her no poet's soul has caught its glow. CjU, cold is she, as thoej bleak winds that blow, From off some barren field of polar ' frost; ; . Such souk as her's no'-er caught the sun gods glow, . .. -..:/? Nor felt the anguish of a loved ono ' lost, And though by some' admired, 'tis I who hato her most. * How different born beneath Austra lian's sun ? ' _ How vastly radiant in her glorious glee-; With eyes all sparkling with her na tive fun, She points the 'path that leacls to gaiety. How sweet at noon of summer's night, to be ? ? Alone withbeauty, 'neath the midnight stars ! Or by the marge of phosphorescent sea ' ' ? . To quaff that draught of love that makes or Mars, While mingling souls float out beyond oblivion's bars.
