Σελίδα 24 - ... o'er the heaving main Beam'd sweetly down from heaven's unclouded plain; And while his bark swift cleaved the sparkling tide, His thoughts were wandering by the Hudson's side ; His distant home in memory's softest hue, His mother — sisters — rise to fancy's view ; His heart beats high; "Thou'lt meet them soon again !" 'Twas thus hope sung ; but, ah ! how false the strain ! He hears of outrage done by ruffian hordes, Whose savage hearts are harder than their swords. At suffering's cry he ne'er...
Σελίδα 61 - O when I waved my last good-bye To parents, friends, and Mary dear, It was not fear that dimm'd mine eye ; This heart ne'er felt a thrill of fear ; It was affection caused the tear. And while upon the heaving main, Our vessel dashes proudly on, To meet those well-loved friends again, With wealth and honours bravely won, That is the hope I live upon.
Σελίδα 24 - ... outrage done by ruffian hordes, Whose savage hearts are harder than their swords. At suffering's cry he ne'er was known to wave ; His hand was ready, and his soul was brave! He meets the foe ; he conquers ! — O, the rest ! — The fatal bullet lodges in his breast ; He falls! as crimson life gush'd out, he cried, "Tell them I bravely fought, and bravely died." Mother of Allen ! weep not for your son ! His race was glorious, but too soon 'twas run ! Yet weep not! Vengeance sleeps, she is not...
Σελίδα 41 - My cheek hath blighted so : The charms, alas ! that won me, I never can forget, Although thou hast undone me, I own I love thee yet. Go, seek the happier maiden Who lured thy love from me ; My heart with sorrow laden Is no more prized by thee : Repeat the vows you made me, Say, swear thy love is true ; Thy faithless vows betray'd me, They may betray her too.
Σελίδα 5 - In conformity to the act of Congress of the United States, entitled "an act for the encouragement of learning, by securing the copies of maps, charts, and books, to the authors and proprietors of such copies, during the time therein mentioned." And also to an act entitled "an act supplementary to an act entitled an act for the encouragement of learning, by securing the copies of maps, charts, and books, to the authors and proprietors of such copies, during the times therein mentioned, and extending...
Σελίδα 90 - Oh, wilt thou come at evening hour to shed The tears of memory o'er my narrow bed; With aching temples on thy hand reclined, Muse on the last farewell I leave behind, Breathe a deep sigh to winds that murmur low, And think on all my love, and all my woe...
Σελίδα 148 - ... follies, a slave to its toils ; But bright o'er the billows of doubt and of danger, The rainbow of promise is Beauty in Smiles. As the rays of the Sun o'er the bosom of Nature, Renew every flow'r which the tempest despoils ; So joy's faded blossom in man's aching bosom, Revives in the sunshine of Beauty in Smiles. The crown of the hero, the star of the rover — The hope that inspires, and the spell that beguiles The song of the Poet, the dream of the Lover, The Infidel's heaven, is Beauty in...
Σελίδα 5 - An Act, supplementary to an Act, entitled an Act for the encouragement of Learning, by securing the copies of Maps, Charts, and Books to the authors and proprietors of such copies, during the times therein mentioned, and extending the benefits thereof to the arts of designing, engraving, and etching historical and other prints.
