(Selected for the PRINCIPALITY.) HOME. THERE is a land of every land the pride, Belove.i by heaven o'er all the world beside Where brighter suns dispense serener light, And milder moons emparadise the night,— A land of beauty, virtue, valour, truth, Time-tutored age, and love-exalted youth. The wandering mariner whose eye explores The wealthiest isles, the most enchanting shores, Views not a realm so beautiful and fair, Nor breathes the spirit of a purer air In every clime the magnet of his soul, Touch'd by remembrance, trembles to that pole; For in this land of heaven's peculiar grace, The heritage of nature's noblest race, There is a spot of earth supremely blest- A dearer, sweeter spot than all the rest, Where man, creation's tyrant, casts aside His sword and sceptre, pageantry and pride While in his softened looks benignly blend The sire, the son, the husband, father, friend Here woman reigns the mother, daughter, wife, Strews with fresh flowers the narrow way of life In the clear heaven of her delightful eye An angel-guard of loves and graces lie Around her knees domestic dutict meet, And fire-side pleasures gambol at her feet. Where shall that land, that spot of earth be found ? Art thou a man ?—a patriot ?—look around 0 thou shalt find. howe'er thy footsteps roam, That land thy country, and that spot thy home.
