On Admiral Lord Nelson's Sending In The Hour Of Victory, A Flag Of Truce To Stop The Further Effusi

Again the tide of rapture swells;
Britannia sees new trophies rise;
Again the trump of vict'ry tells
That with the brave compassion lies!

In vain the carnage of the field!
In vain the conquest of the main!
The brave may bleed - the brave may yield,
'Tis Mercy binds the brave again!

True to the dictates of the heart
That melts to pity's godlike glow,
Humanity arrests the dart,
Half wing'd, to lay the vanquish'd low;

Swift through the battle's thund'ring storm;
See! deck'd in smiles she takes her stand;
Assumes her Nelson's fav'rite ...

An Elegy

Relentless Death! - ah! why so soon
Cut down the flow'ret fair to view!
Pale gleam'd the light of yonder moon,
When pest'lence shed her deadly dew!

The morn arose serene and clear,
The sun refulgent glow'd at noon;
But nought the drooping flower could cheer.
Ah! wherefore droop'd the flower so soon!
