SONGS FROM THE ST. LAWRENCE.
Founded on an incident which transpired at the Natural Bridge in Virginia, as related by Elihu Burritt, in his " Lectures on Genius."
"Twas midday o'er that mighty arch, Which Nature's hand hath framed;
And, far beneath, the Cedar Creek Then in the sunlight flamed.
In the rough channel deep below,
Three rosy children stood ; Uncovered was each thoughtful brow,
Beside the sweeping flood.
Lo! now, with earnest, curious eye,
They read in letters deep, Name after name engraven high,
Along the rocky steep.
