Poetry:

From "TIME'S TELESCOPE(an interesting Annual Work) for 1824.

LINES ADDRESSED TO BERNARD BARTON.
WALK on a little longer in thy path
Of sorrow and of toil: Time hath its bound,
Nor shoreless is the sea of human life.
Walk on a little longer in the faith
Of thy pure heart, poet and friend: thy path
Points to thee onward. What's the world to thee,
And such as thou? Cold, icy cold they be
Who look upon thee; and their hearts as those
Whom in her lonely solitude of snow
Young Laila saw, and wept. Yet bear thou on,
Meek child of song! Are they not thine-the earth,
Green in its living beauty; the lone sky,
The flow of waters, and the spirit that heaves ·
Beneath the ocean's depth ? Look up! look up!
And on the gates of adamant, that close
The portals of thy life, look up, and read
What there is written-Faith and Hope. Hope then,
Hope that upholds the arch of Heaven, and Faith
As strong, be thine; and thy reward shall be
The sabbath of a pure submitted mind.
Such be thy lot!--Or does thy gentle heart,
That ever seeks communion with itself
Of all that's good and lovely-does it yearn
With thoughts of human kindness? would it lay
Its sorrows on the pitying breast, and press
The faithful hand of TRUTH?-Oh! there be those
Who look upon thy path with eyes of love,
And watch thee, journeying by thy side, unseen.
Say, hast thou him forgotten, who of thee
Amid his lonely musings, by the depth
Of shadowy woods, or where his wakeful lamp
Gleams star-like through the midnight hour, has thought
With feelings that despondence cannot touch,
Though dark the shades of life that fall on him,
And pale his cheek with care?

Enough, enough;
The
very

bread we eat is steeped in tears :
All has been offered by us at the shrine
Of Sorrow, yea the heart's best gifts, and still
The cup we drink is full.-

He too is thine
Who cross'd in early youth the ocean streams,
And oft, as round his tent the hot monsoon
Blew stifling the loose desert sands, his heart
Sighed, when his pleasant home by Bealings'* groves,
Amid each shelving bank and flowery coomb,
In dream or nightly vision to his eyes
Came like the voice of bliss. Each well-known spot,
The fir-grove, and the linnet-haunted copse,

Again he saw. The wild wood-lane, that wound
The residence of Major Moor (author of " The Hindoo' Pantheon”), a friend of Mr.
Barton's.
