'THE FALLING LEAF.

meet

LINES ON GREECE.

BY MR. MONTGOMERY.

(From the Edinburgh Magazine.)

(From the London Magazine.)

Were I a trembling leaf
There is a land, a lovely land,

On yonder stately tree,
Where everlasting Summer reigns, After a season gay and brief,
Where all that's beautiful and grand Condem'd to fade and flee;
Breathes from her mountains and her
plaius;

I should be loth to fall
Where placid seas in brightness sleep,

Beside the common way, Around her gardens of the deep;

Weltering in mire, and spura'd by all, Her Eden Isles-for ever fair,

Till trodden down to clay. As when th' Immortals linger'd there ;

I would not choose to die
Where columos, lonely, dim and dread,

All on a bed of grass,
Speak loudly of the mighty dead,
Whose fame, an everlasting gleam

Where thousands of my kindred lie,
Sheds over mountain, gulf and stream.

And idly rot in mass. That land is Greece

Nor would I like to spread Of Sage and Hero but the grave,

My thin and wither'd face, And birth-place only to the Slave;

In hortus siccus, pale and dead, Upon her sons, degenerate grown,

A mummy of my race. The mighty mountains seem to frown ;

No,-n the wings of air Her waters, as they wander on,

Might I be left to fly,
For parted glory make their moan;

I know not, and I heed not where,
Each ruin's sombre stern remains,
Mocks at the wretch who brooks his

A waif of earth and sky!
chains;

Or, cast upon the stream,
Seems to rebuke the suffering slave :- Curl'd like a fairy-boat,
Yet now, fair FREEDOM's flag once more As through the changes of a dream,
Waves on her long-forsaken shore ;

To the world's end I'd float.
The patriot flame at last has burst
On Turkish Tyranny accurst ;

Who that hath ever been,
But not a helping hand is nigh,

Could bear to be no more? To strike for struggling Liberty !

Yet who would tread again the scene

He trod through life before ?
O England ! in the cause of Kings,
Thy blood hath flowed from countless Ou, with intense desire,
springs;

Man's spirit will move on ;
And dost thou shun to lead the van, It seems to die ; yet like heaven's fire
In cause of Freedom and of Mau ?

It is not quench’d, but gone.
And calmly see the Moslem Horde
Doom babe and mother to the sword ?
