Addressed to Mr. H. PLUNGʻD deep in sorrow, and dead to all those phantom forms of bliss, Which once awoke this soul to keen delight ; To nature's charms, to friendship's sacred glow And e'en to hope's delicious transports dead, What magic pow'r shall set the prisoner free, And give again forgotten ecstacies? Is it a dream, or do those favoured souls, Who from high heaven inbale celestial light, and beam benevolence on meaner worms, Is it a dream, or do they round my home, This little nook obscore, diffuse their beams. Steal the torn beurt once more from Misiry's
grasp, And bid it rise and glow with Virtue's fire ? Yes, 'tis reality, the saint, the bard, With silent awe long honoured and rever'd, Discloses the mild graces of his soul, Refinement, tenderness, benevolence, And with a charm ineffable, unfolds All tbat is excellent in human kind. I thank thee, Heaven, that earth is not so poor, As once I deem'd it ; that there still is left, Who taste of friendship's hallow'd mysteries, Who fill domestick life with peace and love, Who carry on celestial intercourse, And who by virtue's animating aid, Make life's uneven path" a downy road;" And though there comes an hour, an awful hour, When Mary's soothing voice is heard no more, And Cowper's throbbing spirit sinks to rest, Translated, where the just made perfect, dwell, Live, rise, and reign for ever ; and when night Veils Earth's mysterious miseries from my
view, I see their sainted forms, hear their soft hymns, and fain would dream, that me, such inter

Grave without dulness, learned without pride, Exact, yet not precise, though neek, keen ey'ds A man that would have foil'd at their own play A dozeit would-be's of the modern day : Who, when occasion justified its use, Had wit as bright as ready to produce; Could fetch from records of an earlier age. Or from philosophy's enlighten'd page, His rich materials; and regule your ear With strains, it was a privilege to hear. Yet, above ALL, his luxury supreme, And his chief glory, wis the GOSPEL theme, There he was copious as old Greece or Rome, His happy eloquence seem'd there at home. Ambitious, not to shinc, or to excel, But to treat justly what he lov'd so well.
