PO E M S
IN FOUR VOLUMES.
LONDON: Printed by J. Hugis,

WRITTEN IN A
COUNTRY CHURCH YARD,
By Mr. GRAY
HE Curfew tolls the knell of parting day,
The lowing herd wind slowly o'er the lea, The plowman homeward plods his weary way, And leaves the world to darkness and to me.
Now fades the glimmering landscape on the fight,
Save that from yonder ivy-mantled tow'r
Beneath those rugged elms, that yew-tree's shade,
