ANGLING LINES ON THE RIVER AA, IN THE PAS-DE-CALAIS, FRANCE.
Vale of bliss ! what joy to wander
Where thy glittering waters flow ! Here, e'en Guilt in peace may ponder;
Here, Despair forget his woe ! Come, where glassy streamlets gushing, Through the meadows curling stray ; Come, and gaze on Nature blushing, In the fierce embrace of May.
Vale of bliss ! what joy to wander
Where thy glittering waters flow ! Here, e'en Guilt in peace may pouder ; Here, Despair forget his woe !
Mark the bold, broad, green hill crowning,
Far and wide, the lovely scene ; On whose brow yon ruin frowning,
Dimly shadows what hath been ; There, at noon, how sweet to listen
To the music of the trees ; There, to see the clear streams glisten,
As they sparkle in the breeze !
Vale of bliss, etc., etc.
Now the rays of eve lie glowing
On the village spire beneath ; Bright as gleams of glory flowing
Round some sinless martyr's wreath !
