STANZAS. Why are WP, like children unwilling to go to bed?" BISHOP HALL, on Dr>ath." 'Tis true, most true, as children shrink away From the quick coming nurse at close of day, So from our last cold pillow fain would we Draw back a little space, it' it might be. Why are we thus reluctant! Even as they, We dread the darkâwe love the light of day. The child will linger by his mother's knee, The parting hour ha3 banished all his glee l hat sweet, low song he longs again to hear, To *tay and watch the stars come, bright and clear; It iikes him not to quit the cheerful light For the thick clouds and phantom forms of night. And even ap to mother earth we cling, When death unfolds his dark and gloomy wing; For she is bright with flowers, and glad with birds, f And musical with tones of kindly words "While all her sorrows, in their dire array, Seem now but shadows of a summer's day. But the cold hands which beckon us to sleep, Unfold two worlds for meditation deep, Make us bqjiold the folly and the sin That through long-vanished years we gloried in, And bid us look upon a Judge, whose eye Is purer than to pass transgression by. True, there is still one Sacrifice, one Rock, One Shepherd watching o'er his weary nock But faith is weak, the heart with terror swells As memory weaveth all its darkest spells Therefore, like frightened children, fain would we Fly from our last ions rest, if it might be. Dec. 2, 1847. ELLEX C.
