THE fifth day of May,
Being airy and gay,
And to hip not inclin'd,
But of vigorous mind,
And my body in health,
I'll dispose of my wealth,
And all I'm to leave,
On this side the grave,
To some one or other,
That my brothers-in-law,
If I did not take care,
Would come in for their share,
Which I no wise intended,
'Till their manners are mended,
And of that, God knows, there's no site 'They liv'd without strife;
I do therefore enjoin,
And do strictly command,
As witness my hand,
That nought I bave got
Shall go into hotch-pot;
To the son of my mother,
My own dear brother,
To have and to hold Who published some marvellous accounts of his
All my silver and gold, truvels, the truth of all arhich he thought As the affectionate pledges proper to testify by Afidavit.

THERE is a radiance in the sky,
It is a lovely hour—though Heaven
But there are sounds along the gale--
The futes breathe nigh—the portais now Pour out the train, white-veil'd, like snow Upon its mountain summit spread, In splendour, beyond man's rude tread; Aná o'er their pomp emerging far, The bride, like evening's virgin-star; And soon along the wave may swim The chorus of the bridal hymn, Again the bright procession move, To take the last sweet veil from love : Then speed thee on, thou glorious Sun! Swift rise-swift set---be bright and done.
