SELECTIONS IN POETRY.

“But hail, ye mighty masters-of-the-lay-,

Nature's true sons, the friends of man and truth!
Whose song, sublimely sweet. serenely gay,
Amused my childhood and inform'd my youth!
O let your spirit still my bosom soothe.
Inspire my dreams, and my wild wanderings guide!
Your voice each rugged path-of-life can smooth;

For well I know wherever-ye-reside
There harmony, and peace, and innocence abide."

Beattie's Minstrel, xlii,
