When the box of Pandora was opened on earth,
And Misery's triumph commenced over Mirth,
Hope was left! Was she not ? but the goblet we kiss,
And care not for hope who are certain of bliss !

Long life to the grape, and when summer is flown,
The
age

of our nectar shall gladden our own ; We must die !—Who shall not ?-may our sins be forgiven, And Hebe shall never be idle in Heaven.

A FRAGMENT.

Awake, my pensive muse, and raise

A low, a deep, and solemn song ;
A record of departed days,

And joys long lost, and cherish'd long.

Oh! when shall fear and strife be o'er,

And torn affection cease to smart;
And
peace

and love return once more,
To cheer a sad and vacant heart?

The lamp of hope is quench'd in night,

And dim is friendship's soul-bright eye,
And cold the hearth of home delight,

And mute the voice of poesy.

I seek for comfort all in vain,

I fly to shadows for relief,
And call old fancies back again,

And breathe on pleasure's withered ļeaf.

It may not be-my lot if ill

Was dealt me by a mightier hand;
The woe, that came not at my will,

Will not depart at my command,

LINES

Written under a Lady's name in a Window.

Three brilliants fair Celinde grac'd,

(There love's artillery lies)
One from her snowy finger blaz’d,

Two sparkled in her eyes.

The first, which shone with fainter rays,

Cou'd here her name impart;
The others drew her charming face

More deeply on my heart,

THE INVITATION.

How lovely the morning! Awake, my fair friend !

Come! let us its fragrance inhale, Where nature's sweet warblers their harmony blend, And Health, on the mountain, invites to ascend,

And catch her fresh tints from the gale.

Oh! come! now the blush of Aurora is bright,

As she welcomes the monarch of day :
But soon half its beauties will fade from the sight:
Then haste, while the charms of the landscape invite,

And all nature around us is gay.
Let the vot'ries of Fashion, unenvied, repose,

While we gaze on the beautiful scene,
And taste, while the morning its freshness bestows,
The delicious perfume of the summer's first rose,

As we trip o'er the dew-spangled green.

EPIGRAM..

Form'd with such strong propensity to prate,
Had females beards how dreadful were their fate!
Beneath the razor's edge each fair enslaver
Would lose her nose while chattering to the shaver!
