DIRGE IN CYMBELINE.

COLLINS.

7 To | fair Fi | dele's | grassy | tomb, 9 I 1 Soft 7 | maids and | village | hinds 717 shall |

bring 71 Each 7 | opening | sweet, 9 17 of earliest | bloom,

7 And | rifle | aĪl 717 the breathing | spring. 7

1:11 Non | wailing | ghost 7 | 7shall | dare ap | pear, ang ! 7 To | vex with | shrieks, 7 | 7 this quiet | grove;

171 | 7 But shepherd | lads as / semble | here 7 | 7 And | melting | virgins | | own their | love. 7 |

1 1 No wither'd | witch 7 1 9 shall | here be seen,

;

No 9 | goblins | lead their | nightly | crew; 7 | | 7 The female | fays q | 7 shall | haunt the / green,

7 | 7 And | dress thy | grave 7 1 7 with pearly | dew.

7 1 1 1 7 The / red breast oft, 9 17 at I evening | hours 7 |

7 Shall | kindly ! | lend his | little | aid 7 | 7 With | hoary | moss, 7 | 7 and I gather'd flowers, 7 To | deck the ground 717 where | thou art |

laid. 7 1 1 1 7 When | howling | winds 7 17 and beating | rain

71 7 In | tempests! | shake thy | sylvan cell; 7 7 Or | midst the chace 7 17 on every | plain, 7 | 7 The tender | thought 917 on | thee shall |

dwell; 7 | 11 Each 7 | lonely | scene 7 1 7 shall | thee re | store,

7 7 For | thee, 7 | 7 the tear 7 1 7 be duly | shed;

71 | 7 Be | lov’d, 717 till life 717 can | charm no

more; 7 | 1 7 And | mourn'd, 7 | 7 till | Pity's | self be dead. 7 IT

7 0n | Linden / when the sun was | low, 7 | 7 All | bloodless | lay the un | trodden | snow, 7 |

17 And dark as winter 17 was the flow 7 | 7 Of Iser | rolling | rapidly. I I 7 But | Linden | | saw an other | sight 7 | When the / drum 7 | beat 7 17 at | dead of | night

7] 7 Com | manding | fires of death, 717 to 1 light

[ocr errors][ocr errors]

y The darkness | 7 of her | scenery. | | |
7 By | torch and | trumpet | | fast ar | ray'd, 7 |
Each 7 | horseman | drew his battle | blade, 7 |
7 And | furious | every | charger | neighed 7 |
7 To join the dreadful | revelry. | | |
Then 7 | shook the hills 7 1 7 with | thunder | riv-

en, 1
Then 7 | rush'd the steed, 717 to battle | driv-

1 | And 7 | louder than the | bolts of heaven, / Far, 7 | flash'd 7 1 7 the red 7 | 7 ar | tillery. I 7 And / redder | yet 7 17 those | fires shall | glow,

71 7 On | Linden's hills of blood-stain'd | snow, 7 |

en,

7 And | darker | yet 7 | 7 shall be the | flow, 7 |
7 of Iser | rolling | rapidly. | | |
ng 'Tis | morn; 71 1 7 but | scarce 7 | yon 7 | lurid

| sun 71
Can | pierce the war-clouds | rolling | dun; 7 |

1 7 Where | furious | Frank 7 | 7 and | fiery | Hun 7 |

Shout in their sulphurous | canopy. / II 7 The I combat | deepens. | | | On 7 17 ye | brave

71 my Who | ruish to | glory | 17 or the grave: 7 |

11 Wave 7 | | Munich | | all thy | banners | wave; 7

7 And | charge 7 | 7 with | all 7 | 7 thy | chivalry. I

Few 1 | few shall | part | 7 where many | meet 7

1 1 1 7 The | snow 7 | 7 shall be their | winding / sheet; 7

11 7 And | every | turf 7 1 7 be neath their | feet 7 | 7 Shall be a soldier's | sepulchre. 1 1

[blocks in formation]

O for | evening's | brownest / shade; 7 |

| Where the breezes I play 7 | 7 by | stealth, 7 | 7 In the forest- | cinctured | glade, 7 |

Round the hermitage of | Health : 7| 1 7 While the noon-bright | mountains | blaze, 7 | 7 In the sun's tormenting rays: 7 | I 1 O’er the sick and / sultry | plains, 7 |

Through the | dim 7 | 7 de | lirious | air, 7 | | Agonizing | silence | reigns; 7 | 1

7 And the wanness | 7 of des pair. 7| | 1 Nature | faints 7 1 7 with | fervent | heat; 7! Ah! 7 1 7 her | pulse 7 | 7 has | ceas’d to beat. 7 |

11 Now in | deep and dreadful | gloom, 7 | Clouds on | clouds 7 17 por | tentous | spread; 7

Il
Black 7 | as if the day of doom, 7 |

[ocr errors]

Hung o'er | nature's | shrinking | head. 711 Lo, 7 | 7 the lightning | breaks from high ; 7 | 1 God is coming || God 7 | 7 is | nigh. 7 1 1 1 Hear ye not 7 his chariot wheels, 7|

7 As the mighty | thunder | rolls; 7 | Nature, | startled | nature, | | reels, 7 |

7 From the centre | 7 to the poles. 7 1 1 1 Tremble | ocean | earth 7 1 7 and sky. 7| | Tremble, | | God 7 | 7 is / passing | by. 7| 1 Darkness | wild with | horror | forms 7 |

His mys | terious / hiding | place; 7 |
Should he | 7 from his | ark of storms 7 |

Rend the | veil 7 | 7 and show his | face, 91
7 At the judgment | 7 of his eye 7 |
All the universe | 7 would | die. 9 1 1 1
Brighter | broader | lightnings | flash, 7 |

Hail and rain, 7 | 7 tem | pestuous | fall, 9 | | Louder | deeper | thunders | crash, 7 |

Deso | lation | threatens | all. 7| | 1 Struggling | nature | gasps for | breath, ។ 1 7 In the agony | 7 of death. 7 1 1 God of | vengeance | 7 from a | bove, 7 | While thine | awful | bolts are | hurled, 7 | | 0,7 | 7 re member | thou 7 | 7 art | love: 7

1 1 1 Spare, 7 | 0, / spare ng 1 nya guilty / world. 7!

11
Stay thy | flaming | wrath a while; 7 |
See thy | bow of | promise I smile. 7 1 1 1
Welcome | 7 in the Eastern | cloud 71
