TO THE CRITIC.
Think not, O man who dost this book review,
Much it contains has been already said,
And may perchance be elsewhere better read;
Yet, as in Nature search is not in vain
That much, my Christmas gift, set down as gain ;
THE SPIRIT AND THE MUSE.
THE CHOIRS OF HEAVEN.
“Singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord."
The music of the heavenly spheres
But richer finer harmonies
The spirits sing in Paradise
Before the throne of God:
Yet from the heart of earthly saint
May mingle with the melody
