ORIGINAL POETRY.

(Gent. Mag.)

NIGHT. BY JAMES MONTGOMERY, ESQ. NIGHT is the time for rest ;

That brings into the home-sick mind How sweet when labours close,

All we have loved and left behind. To gather round an aching breast

Night is the time for care ; The curtain of repose ;

Brooding on hours mis-spent, Stretch the tired limbs and lay the bead

To see the spectre of Despair Upon our owa delightful bed! A

Come to our lonely tent ; Night is the time for dreams;

Like Brutus midst his slumbering host The gay romance of life,

Startled by Cæsar's stalwart ghost. When truth that is and truth that seems

Night is the time to muse ; Blend in fantastic strise ;

Then from the eye the soul Ab! visions less beguiling far

Takes flight, and with expanding views Tban waking dreams by daylight are !

Beyond the starry pole, Fight is the time for toil

Descries athwart the abyss of night Te plough the Classic field,

The dawn of uncreated light. Intent to find the buried spoil

Night is the time to pray; Its wealthy farrows yield ;

Our Saviour oft withdrew Till all is ours that sages taught,

To desert mountains far away,

So will his followers do ; Night is the time to weep;

Steal from the throng to haunts untrod, To vd with unseen tears

And hold communion there with God.
Those graves of memory where sleep

Night is the time for death;
Tbe joys of other years ;
Hopes that were Angels in their birth,

Calmly to yield the weary breath,
But perished young like things of earth!
Night is the time to watch ;

Think of Heaven's bliss and give the sign
On ocean's dark expanse,

To parting friends ;-such death be mine! To hail the Pleiades, or catch

THE POET'S STUDY.
BY BERNARD BARTOX, THE QUAKER POET.

OII! sot in ceiled rooms of state,

The moss'd trunk of a scathed tree Cumber'd with books the while,

Should be my only seat ; Vould I the Muse's influence wait,

And more than moral tomes to me Othere expect her smile.

That relic should repeat. A nok in some lone church-yard green,

There too in living leafy pride, Fanp'd by the summer breeze

Another tree should grow, The living and the dead between,

Whose writhed branches far and wide Would more my fancy please.

Their welcome shade should throw. Not unto Fancy's power alone

Those boughs, by whisp'ring breezes stirr'd, Should such a scene appeal :

My canopy should be, Its sober and its chasten'd tone

And every gentle whisper heard My inmost heart would feel.

Sbould tell a tale to me. 2 ATHENEUM VOL. 1. 2d series.

I against iron rails and fat men, I tremble do believe that no man of any occupation lest all my treasured observations should be would become a thief, if he were fully thrown away, and my long fatigue prove aware of the punishment of listening to the profitless to my friend.
