Each bird that shakes the dewy grove Warms its wild note with nuptial love; The bird, the bee, with various sound, Proclaim the sweets of wedlock round. THE LA88 OP GLENE8LAN-MILL. The laverock loves the dewy light, The bee the balmy fox-glove fair; The shepherd loves the glowing morn, When song and sunshine fill the air: But I love best the summer moon, With all her stars, pure streaming still; For then, in light and love I meet, The sweet lass of Gleneslan-mill. The violets lay their blossoms low, Beneath her white foot, on the plain; Their fragrant heads the lilies wave, Of her superior presence fain. 0 might I clasp her to my heart, And of her ripe lips have my will! For loath to woo, and long to win, Was she by green Gleneslan-mill. Mute was the wind, soft fell the dew, O'er Blackwood brow bright glow'd the moon; Kills murmur'd music, and the stars Refused to set our heads aboon Ye might have heard our beating hearts, Our mixing breaths, --all was so still, Till morning's light shone on her locks, --Farewell, lass of Gleneslan-mill. Wert thou an idol all of gold, Had I the eye of worldish care, --I could not think thee half so sweet, Look on thee so, or love thee mair. Till death's cold dew-drop dim mine eye, This tongue be mute, this heart lie still, --Thine every wish of joy and love, My lass of green Gleneslan-mill! THE POET'S BRIDAL-DAY SONG. O! My love's like the steadfast sun, Or streams that deepen as they run; Nor hoary hairs, nor forty years, Nor moments between sighs and fears; Nor nights of thought, nor days of pain, Nor dreams of glory dream'd in vain, --Nor mirth, nor sweetest song which flows To sobe...
