Though for far distant regions we ne'er set our sails,
Thy breast, O Winander! encounters rude gales;
When the swift whirlwind rushes from Langdale's dark form,
E'en the weather-worn sailor might start at the storm:

Yet in vain yields the mast

To the force of the blast
Whilst the heart to the moorings of courage is fast;
And the sons of Winander are skilful and brave,
Nor shrink from the threats of the Westmorland wave.

To us are consign'd the gay fête and the ball,
Where beauty enslaves whom no dangers appal;
For when she submission demands from our crew,
Nil timeo" must yield, conq'ring Cupid, to you,

Then, alas! we complain

Of the heart-rending pain,
And confess that our motto is boasting and vain;
Though the sons of Winander are skilful and brave,
Their flag must be bow'd to the gems of the wave.

To us it is given to drain the deep bowl,
The dark hours of midnight thus cheerfully roll;
Our captain commands, we with pleasure obey,
And the dawning of morn only calls us away.

On our sleep-sealed eyes

Soon soft visions arise,
From the black fleet of sorrow we fear no surprise,
For the sons of Winander are joyous and brave,
As bold as the storm, and as free as the ware.

Whene'er we pass o'er, without compass, the line,
'Tis friendship that blows on an ocean of wine;
The breakers of discord ne'er roar on the lee,
At the rudder whilst love, wine, and friendship agree:

Then let us combine

Love, friendship, and wine,
On our bark then the brigbt star of pleasure shall shine;
For the sons of Winander are faithful and brave,
And proud rides their flag on the Westmorland wave.

And now “sharpening its mooned horse-marine. The Shuffler draws horns,” the whole Fleet close inshore up in style on our right_flankdrops anchor; and all the crews give "Steady, Sam. Steady!” Billy apChristopher three cheers. If this be plies a red-hot poker to the touch. not a regatta, pray what is a regatta ? hole of the pattareroe-and in full Colonsay paws the beach as if impa- view of the Fleet-AGAIN WE START. tient to board the Flag-Ship like a
