SUMMER.

SUMMER. This is the time of shadow and of flowers, When roads gleam white for many a winding mile; When gentle breezes fan the lazy hours, And balmy rest o'erpays the time of toil; When purple hues and shifting beams beguile The tedious sameness of the heath grown moor W hen the old grandsire sees with placid smile, I The sunburnt children frolic round his door, And trellised roses deck the cottage of the poor. The time of pleasaot evenings! when the moon Riseth companioned by a single star, And rivals e'en the brilliant summer noon In the clear radiance which she pours afar; No stormy winds her hours of peace to mar, Or stir the fleecy clouds which melt away Beneath the wheels of her illumined car While many a river trembles in her ray, And silver gleam the sands round many an ocean bay Oh! then the heart lies hushed, afraid to beat, In the deep absence of all other sound And home is sought with loath and lingering feet, As though that shining tract of fairy ground, Once left and lost, might never more be found And happy seems the life that gipsies lead, Who make their rest where mossy banks abound, In nooks were unplucked wild-flowers shed their seed; A canvass* spreading tent the only roof they need! X MRS. NORTON.
