[written for the Richmond Dispatch.]
my Richmond home.
by "country."

‘ Give me my old lord home.
With friends who are so dear;
Naught is in this love place.
My drooping heart to cheer.

Monotony is King.
And rule me with its power;
From it oft would fl e,
But can't for even an hour.

To mingle with my kind,
And aid them with my might,
In re w or in joy.
Would be my great delight.

E m d in a cold vault.
One might is better be,
Than in seclusion live.
And just an I see.
