I. LOVE I PERSONAL                                   31
So thou, dear bird, young Jeany fair, On trembling string or vocal air Shall sweetly pay the tender care
That tents thy early morning! So thou, sweet Rosebud, young and gay, Shalt beauteous blaze upon the day, And bless the parent's evening ray
That watch'd thy early morning.
No. 32. Musing on the roaring ocean.
Musing on the roaring ocean, Which divides my love and me,
Wearying Heav'n in warm devotion For his weal where'er he be.
Hope and fear's alternate billow Yielding late to Nature's law,
Whisp'ring spirits round my pillow, Talk of him that's far awa.
Ye whom sorrow never wounded, Ye who never shed a tear,
Care-untroubled, joy-surrounded, Gaudy Day to you is dear.
Gentle Night, do thou befriend me;
Downy Sleep, the curtain draw: Spirits kind, again attend me,
Talk of him that's far awa!
