FAREWELL TO PEACE.

I have wooed thee, meek eyed PEACE,

To thee have turn'debe vocal shell ; Now, the darling strain must cease ;

Harsher noies the Clarian swell.

Then fare thee well! for till that hour

That sees my country's wrongs re. Apollo struck the enchanting Lyre,

dressed, The Muses sung in strains alternate.' | Disgrace would be thy, baneful dower,

If still I clasped thee to my breast.
