ODES AND SONGS.                                     89
Then crystal stream! I'll blythly roam, Companion of thy thoughtful nymph;
On thy green bank I'll build my home, And quaff thy pure and sparkling lymph.

Air.—" Auld Lang Syne.
B E days of drinking wine forgot; Let water goblets shine ; And from your memory ever blot
The days of drinking wine : Those days of drinking wine, my friend,
Those days of drinking wine ; A temperance hour is worth a power Of days of drinking wine !
We twa have quaff'd to days long past
Bright juices of the vine ; But let us from our memories cast
Those customs of " lang syne :" Bad customs of " lang syne," my friend,
Bad customs of " lang syne ; Our temperance age must blot the page
Of customs of " lang syne."
We twa can meet as friends should meet;
We twa together dine ; Our bev'rage quaff from fountains sweet,
And ne'er regret the wine. At temperance's shrine, my friend, my friend,
We're pledged at her fair shrine ; And hold her cause above the laws
And customs of " lang syne."
