134 SONGS FROM THE ST. LAWRENCE.
DISTANT VIEW OF THE RIVER.
From an elevated tract in Bangor, N. Y., the St. Lawrence river can be distinctly seen at the distance of about twenty miles.
Far along the blue horizon,
Stretch'd in tranquil light it lay,
While my eye -went wand'ring o'er it; In the distance far away.
Many a pleasing thought was rising, Waken'd by that lovely scene,
Of the beauteous vales and hamlets, Of the homes that lie between.
Thus the eye of Faith may venture
O'er the boundary of time, Pierce the deep involving shadows
Hanging o'er that mystic clime.
But the heart that would be ranging Thro' those lovely sMes serene,
Will be ling'ring round the objects That in dimness lie between.
••Far along the dim horizon,
Stretch'd in tranquil light it lay, While my eye went wand'ring o'er it In the distance far away.
