A Lover's Lament

In vain do springtime's many charms essay
To chase the gloom in Aray's glen to-day ;
The strains that there once charmed my listening ear

When that fair star, so late my soul's delight,
Hath vanished, never more to cheer my sight,

'When my fond heart, sad-missing joy so brief,
Lies in the dust, enamoured of its grief,

When, for the couch she soon might reach, fove-led.
The grave becometh Jessie's bridal bed.
Well may the tears of friendship freely flow,
And life to me be an unending woe.
Insatiate Death ...
