O Nature! by impassion'd hearts alone

Thy genuine charms are felt; the vulgar mind
Sees but the sbadow of a power unknown:

Thy loftier beauties beam not to the blind
And sensual throng, to grovelling hopes resigo'd:

But they who high and lofty thoughts inspire,
Adore thee, in celestial glory shrined,

In that diviner fane, where Love's pure fire
Burns bright, and Genius tunes his loud immortal lyre.

PRINGLE.

If thou art worn and hard beset
With sorrows that thou wouldst forget,
If thou wouldst read a lesson that will keep
Thy heart from fainting and thy soul from sleep,
Go to the woods and bills! No tears
Dim the sweet look that Nature wears.

Longfellow.

The leaf-tongues of the forest,

The flower-lips of the sod,
The happy birds that bymn

Their rapture in the ear of God.
The summer wind that bringeth

Music over land and sea,
Have each a voice that singeth

This sweet song of songs to me.-
“The world is full of beauty,

Like other worlds above,
And if we do our duty,
It might be full of love."

Massey.
