FLY NOT YET.

1

By Thomas Moore, Esq.
Apollo struck the enchanting Lyre,
The Muses sung in strains alternate. Fly not yet, 'tis just the hour,

When pleasure, like the midnight flow'r,

That scorks' the eye of vulgar light,
For the Lady's Miscellany.

Begins to bhoom for sons of nighi,
A MÄSONIC HYMN.

And maids who love the moon!
Unto thyself great God belong, 'Twu but to bless these hours of shade,
vur mystic rites and sacred song! That beairty and the moon were made;
Most lowly bending at thy shrine,

'Tis then the soft attractions glowing.' We praise thy majesty divine !

Set the rides and goblets flowing:

wh! stay-Oh! stay-
O! Glorious Architeci above,

Joy'só seldom weaves a chain
Thou source of light and soucre of love, Like this to nighe, that oh! 'tis pain
Thy heuning truth and love prevail, To break its links so soon.
Hail ! bail Almighty Master bail?

Fly not yet, the fount that play'd
Shining in yonder regions bright, In tiines of old througb Ammoni slijde,
The sun by day ihe moon by night,

Though icy cold by day it'ran,
And orient stars that guild the sky, Yee," still like souls of mirth began,
Shall blazen forth thy pruise on high, To burn whety night' was near ;
"While Earth will join, and as it rolls,

And iħus should women's hearts & loolas,

Ai noon be cold as winter brooks,
From East to West, from pole io pole,

Nor kidle till the night reiurning,
Will lift to beaven her grateful lays,

Brings their genial bone for burning
And join in Universal praise.

Oh! stay-Oh! stay
Glowing with thy benignat grace,

When did morning ever break,
Sweet friendship link'd the liuman race

And find such beaming eyes awako,
And pity lodg'd within her breast,

As those that sparkle here.
Kind Charity became her guest!
