A poor wayfaring man of grief, 250

A rose in yonder garden grew 210

A wail was heard around the !icd, the death-bed of the young, 93

Ah ! day revered for sixty years, 200

Ah! little I thought, when with thrilling delight, 140

Alas !—how light a cause may move, 79

All worldly shapes shall melt in gloom 137

An aged widow with one only child, 20

And where is he? not by the side, 77

Another year's fast hastening to a close, life

As the wild bird sings in his brake, my love, lb

Beside her babe, who sweetly slept, J&7

Blest be the bark that o'er the ocean glides, lUi

Book! as fair S forms the varied line,

But lie, the favourite and the flower,

Children of God, who, pacingslow .....__i■■»

From Jf



From the climes of the sun, all war-worn and weary, 122

'God speed thee, Eustace D'Argencourt, be brave, &c 212

Had I the power above this mortal state, 203

Hark! heard you not those hoofs of dreadful note? 60

He is come from the land of the sword and the shrine, 98

Here's a health to thee, Mary, 59

How beautiful this night! the balmiest sigh, 92

How calm is the stillness of night, 156

How sweet it is, in twilight shade, 48

How wild and dim this life appears 197

I bring fresh showers for the thirsting flowers, 173

I did not weep, when I was told, 62

I had a dream, which was not all a dream, 161

I love thee, Solitude! thou art possessed, 100

I marked the calm on her young fair face 186

I never cast a flower away, 126

I paused—then turning back the heavy bolt, 160

I saw a pauper once—when I was young, ...'......:.'.. 81

I saw her laid in the silent tomb, 206

I saw upon a foreign shore, ..M■■.s■.kss^. '63

I spring from the gold mottled east, .Vi'..'..*..;:.. 201

In ancient time, near the wide ocean strand 31

In slumbers of midnight the sailor boy lay, ...............'..'... 189

In sooth 'tis pleasant on a summer morn, ''iS''

Ipsara! thy glory is gone from the sea, 73

It comes—it comes upon the gale, .*.,... 21

I've seen the lovely garden flowers, ....;.*.!'..;.. 179

Knowest thou the land where the hardy green thistle, 106

Know, solemn visitant of the remains, ■.».,. 216

Know ye the land where the cypress and myrtle, ......'....... 105

Land, where the bones of our fathers are sleeping! 117

Life's but a dream of ill-spent hours, - 119

Love is a holy power,■Li.;...'•. 53

Mary! I want a lyre with other strings 193

My boy refused his food, forgot to play, 126

My child, my child, thou leav'st me! I shall hear, 14

My untried muse shall no high tunc assume, 67

Not easily, my friend, can I recount, 236

O could my spirit fly from this dark world of woe, 254

O heaven, O beautiful and boundless sky, ,84

O listen, listen, ladies gay! 182

O wanderer! would thy heart forget, 65

Of power and honour no longer a token 162

Oft have I thought, if I sheuld die 207

Oh! child of grief, why weepest thou? 154

Oh poverty ! is this a child of thine, 253

Oh! say not that the picturing* of youth, 185

Oh that those lips had language! life has passed, 28

Oh ! the lady I admire is so beautiful and bright 42

On beds of snow the moon-beam slept 225

On Ella's cheek the rose was seen, 136

Oppressed with grief, oppressed with care, 151

Our days, alas! our mortal days, 181

Paris! there was no sleep beneath thy roofs, 242

Prostrate in the dust, 168

Reader! the mortal part is here interred 12

Scenes of my youth! ye once were dear, 51

See, reader, here, in youth, or age, or prime 220

See the glow-worm lits her fairy lamp 192

Shall he, whose birth, maturity and age, 143

She was a thing of morn, with the soft calm, 43

Smile through thy tears like the blush moss-rose, 205

Soldier! so tender of thy Prince's fame 219

Soon shall I lay my head, 231

So prayed the Psalmist to be free, 47

Stranger, pause—for thee the day, 199

Stranger! who sleeps in yonder nameless grave, 9

Sun of the sleepless! melancholy star, 131

The bark that held a prince went down, 40

The curling waves with awful roar, 45

The day-light is fading! the cloud-broken ray, 121

The dews of night did falle „ 2
