nrtr. THE MEMORY OF THE PAST. WHKN ruddy dawn lights up the sky, We seek the mountain way, And brave the mists that round us fly, To view the bursting day. Yet thought ean lend a brighter hue To the sun wherever cast, C Can smile thro' tears like light through dew— 'Tis the mem'ry of the past. When moody griefs usurp the mind, fr Or the hailstorins of despair, The dove of peace no rest can find, Nor hopes to harbour there. But the light of days for ever fled Shines through the storm and blast, » i And shows the rainbow is not dead Of the mem'ry of the past. '• When rude winds whistle round our home, i: And croon in the chimney wide, We think of the mariners that roam On the swelling ocean's tide. We feel sweet horror at the gale, And the vengeance of its blast; We kindle at the shipwreck'd's tale, In the mem'ry of the past. When fortune wounds by friendship's death, Or withers strength with age, What can restore now silent breath, » Or jaded powers engage? What ivy bloom arodnd the tree Such blight has overcast, What charm can soothe time's dark decree, Save memry of the past! Herald. C. A. W. '1
