COLLEGE CHAPEL.

A shady seat by some cool mossy spring,
Where solemn trees close round, and make a gloom,
And faint and earthly smells, as from a tomb,
Unworldly thoughts and quiet wishes bring ;
Such hasť thou been to me each morn and eve,-
Best loved when most thy call did interfere
With schemes of toil or pleasure, that deceive
And cheat young hearts: for then thou mad'st me feel
The holy Church more nigh, a thing to fear.
Sometimes all day with books, thoughts proud and wild
Have risen, till I saw the sunbeams steal
Through painted glass at evensong, and weave
Their three-fold tints upon the marble near,
Faith, prayer, and love, the spirit of a child !

FABER.

ENGLISH HEROES.

A braver choice of dauntless spirits
Than now the English bottoms have waft o'er,
Did never float upon the swelling tide,
To do offence and scathe in Christendom.
The interruption of their churlish drums
Cuts off more circumstance : they are at hand.

SHAKSPERE.
STARLIGHT.

Listen too,
How every pause is fill'd with under-notes,
Clear, silver, icy, keen awakening tones,
Which pierce the sense, and live within the soul,
As the sharp stars pierce winter's crystal air
And gaze upon themselves within the sea.

SHELLEY.

USE OF SORROW.

a

There are a thousand joyous things in life,
Which pass unheeded in a life of joy
As thine hath been, till breezy sorrow comes
To ruffle it; and daily duties paid
Hardly at first, at length will bring repose
To the sad mind that studies to perform them.
