STANZAS ON PEACE.

No longer I follow a sound;

No longer a dream I pursue : O Happiness! not to be found,

Unattainable treasure, adieu !

I have sought thee in splendour and dress,

In the regions of pleasure and taste; I have sought thee, and seem'd to possess,

But have proved thee a vision at last.

An humble ambition and hope

The voice of true Wisdom inspires; 'Tis sufficient, if Peace be the scope

And the summit of all our desires.

Peace may be the lot of the mind

That seeks it in meekness and love : But rapture and bliss are confined

To the glorified spirits above.
