For the Lady's Miscellany,


Delia ? true, lovely, charming fair ;
How happy must that mortal be,
Who sball alone, thy friendship share,
And know the bliss of loving thee.

Ah if some friendly hand points not to

er.dless day ; How should vain erring man who

boasts of virtue fair, For rich eternal life, for joys diving

prepare? Yet justice sternly says, he shall bend

down his ear; He shall dread disappointments, pain

and anguish fear ; Tho' he defy truth's plain and simple

precepts givin, He shall remember well, how he with truth bath striv'n.


Who, when oppressing sorrows rise,
To thee, can every grief impart,
And find a solace in thy eyes,
To sooth each anguish of his heart.
With thee, to share the envied{cot,
With thee, in virtues path to stray,
Oh! should it be my happy lot,
Tbus smooth to pass my life away,

Then fortune migbt her gifts deny,
For thou the greatest in her power ;
And poverty would still supply,
To pleasure many a fleeting hour.

And fancy bring me nigh to thee.
On her soft pinions still I'll soar,
And great antisipation (d,
