And words of fitness to his lips were given, And strength as from above: How the sad captive listened to the Word, Until his chain Grew lighter, and his wounded spirit felt The healing balm of consolation melt Upon its life-long pain: How the armed warrior sat him down to hear Of Peace and Truth, And the proud ruler and his Creole dame, Jewelled and gorgeous in her beauty came, And fair and bright-eyed youth. Oh, far away beneath New England's sky, Even when a boy, Following my plough by Merrimac's green shore, His simple record I have pondered o'er With deep and quiet joy. And hence this scene, in sunset glory warm,— Its woods around, Its still stream winding on in light and shade, Its soft, green meadows and its upland glade,— To me is holy ground. And dearer far than haunts where Genius keeps His vigils still; Than that where Avon's son of song is laid, Or Vaucluse hallowed by its Petrarch's shade, Or Virgil's laurelled hill. To the gray walls of fallen Paraclete, To Juliet's

. Its afterglow Along the west is burning low. My visitors, like birds, have flown; I hear their voices, fainter grown, And dimly through the dusk I see Their 'kerchiefs wave good-night to me,— Light hearts of girlhood, knowing nought Of all the cheer their coming brought; And, in their going, unaware Of silent-following feet of prayer: Heaven make their budding promise good With flowers of gracious womanhood! R. S. S., at Deer Island on the Merrimac. make, for he loved thee well, our Merrimac, From wave and shore a low and long lament For him, whose last look sought thee, as he went The unknown way from which no step comes back. And ye,O ancient pine-trees, at whose feet He watched in life the sunset's reddening glow, Let the soft south wind through your needles blow A fitting requiem tenderly and sweet! No fonder lover of all lovely things Shall walk where once he walked, no smile more glad Greet friends than his who friends in all men had, Whose pleasant memory to that Island

d a white sail O'er a lovelier wave than my dear native river, Or brighter tides roll'd than in Merrimac's vale! And fair streams may glide where the climate is milder, Where winter ne'er gathers andy-tale,— But such scenes could not be to my heart so delightful As the home of my fathers,—fair Merrimac's vale! There are streams where the bounty of Providence musters The fairest of fruits by theirfted sail, The age-stinted oak and the green groves of wild-wood That wave round the borders of Merrimac's vale! Oh, lovely the scene, when the gray misty vapor Of morning is lifted from Merrimac's sMerrimac's shore; When the fire-fly, lighting his wild gleaming taper, Thy dimly seen lowlands comes glimmering o'er; When on thy calm surface the moonbeam falls brightly, And the dull bird of night is his covertnd reason shall fail, Still preference give to my own native river, The home of my fathers, and Merrimac's vale! 1825.
