LORD DACRE, A BALLAD.

}

Poetry.

WRITTEN AFTER A SUCCESSION OF MELANCHOLY

AND TERRIFIC DREAMS.

Avaunt! ye shadowy forms of dread, That stalk mysterious round my bed, And ever and anon, with hideous wail, Pour on th’affrighted ear the ghastly tale Of woe and horror; of despair and death, And all the master miseries of earth: Avaunt! nor ceaseless vigil keep, And banish from my pillow, sleep, With sights of fear, chimera dire, That set the madding brain on fire, And make worn nature's couch of rest The rendezvous of shapes unblest! Ye viewless ministers of ill, That hold in thrall the captive will, And bid the shades of darkness roll Chaotic o'er the struggling soul! Ye imps, unseen of mortal ken, That rule the destinies of men, And from the youthful brow efface Each Hebe attribute of grace! Ye doers of the will of Fate, Oh! from your ebon throne of state, In pity, ohl in pity hear The sob of woe, the pleading prayer, Wrung from the bosom of despairs And bid th' unreal conflict cease, And spread around the balm of Peace ! For are not waking hours of life Enough for ills malign, and strife? And must the tears at morning shed, Bedew at eve th' unquiet bed; And not one little hour be given, One hour serene, composed, and even, In which, Its sorrows iulled to rest, Again may joy illume the breast, And o'er the stormy waters dark, The dove regain her long-lost ark?

Nature's revivifier, Sleep,
in Lathelan dews my senses steep:
Or waft me to some lone abode,
By human footsteps never trod;
Some blessed Isle of sacred rest,
Where Peace may build her downy gest,
And Love replume his raffled wing,
And Hope her sweetest descant sing :
Oh! bear me from this world of woe,
To that where purest waters flow;
Where suns eternal brightly shine,
And deathless flow'rets wreathe the shrine
Raised in Elysian realm to thee,
of poets named Felicity,
The sought and worshipped every where,
Though unpossessed, unknown of here!
Come, fairy goddess, gentle Sleep,
And let us vigil joyous keep,
In some fair starry isle remote,
Fairer than painting ever wrought,
Where, wrapt in softly-soothing airs,
The soul may speed to brighter spheres,
Spurn the dark confines of its clay,
And revel in eternal day!

Sleep, angel Sleep! no longer weer
The sable livery of Care,
And bours devote to gentle rest
Ururp with visions all un blest;

Madness and death, a fearful train,
And all the shadowy host of pain.
Sleep, angel Sleep! the gate unbar
Of that bright realm where never war,
The passion's war, may dare intrude,
Impetuous as wild swelling flood,
And whelming all of pure and good!
Sleep, angel Sleep! no more affright,
With sights and sounds, the tranquil night,
But as thine awful semblance calm,
Death, crowned with ever-living palm,
Do thou in saintly garb appear,
And still the sigh, and dry the tear ;
Wide ope the empyreum of bliss,
Th' ecstatic realm of blessedness,
Towering o'er Jordan's waters high,
The land of immortality!
Then, gentle Sleep, I'll worship thee
With all a lover's fervency;
And thine shall be the silken tie
'Twixt earth and yon blue vaulted sky;
The link, when other bands are riven,
To steal from Time, and wing to heaven!
And when the weary day is done,
With years before the flood withdrawn,
Then, Sleep, together thou and 1,
On pinion fleet will upward fly,
Mingle with seraph choirs above,
And tune our glittering harps to love!
Oh! then, forgot this dim abode,
We'll commune with the pure and good ;
Wander through well-known haunts beloved,
With kindred souls, from earth removed ;
Gaze on each “dear familiar face,"
And friend with friend, long lost, embrace!

Sleep, gentle Sleep! the storm forswear,
And only summer's radiance wear;
And round that placid brow of thine,
With poppy, brightest rose entwine;
And quit for aye the nurky shade
Of darksome pine, for flow'ry glade ;
For sunny lawns, and azure skies,
For laughing loves, and sparkling eyes;
And vigil henceforth only keep

In bowers of bliss, benignant Sleep!
Liverpool

Lord Dacre, the Baron, hath left his hold,

On a steed of raven black,
And a hundred vassals, warriors bold,

Are riding at his back.
By Lannercost tower, at dawn of day,

They shone in their shirts of mall,
And their bugles rang, and their pennon gay

Wus waving in the gale.
And why, o'er the waste, does the Baron ride,

With his hundred vassals bold?
Goes he to hunt on the mountain side,

Or to storm a castle bold?
Lord Dacre hath sworn in vengeful midt

,
Hath sworn by the holiest name,
To dye his sword in the best heart's blog

of Sir Hugh the valliant Graeme.
For the foraying Knight had risen in wrath,

And sack'd the Dacre's hold,
And ruin and scaith had marked the pack,

of the Scottish Knight so bold.
Lord Dacre's troop hath left the bul,

And cross'd the Esk's dark stream;
And the bugles are hush'd, and all is still,

Save the distant eagle's scream.
But when they had pass'd to a narrow del,

The darkling woods among,
A murmuring sound was heard to swell,

Borne by the breeze along.
But what was the deed that there was done,

By none was ever said,
Though the deep-dyed wave, as it murmurede

Whisper'd fearfully of the dead.
And it whisper'd, in sooth, of that gallant band,

But one again was seen,
And a hundred warriors sleep on the strand

Of the lonely mountain stream.
By Lannercost tower, at eventide,

A horseman check'd his rein;
But the warm blood ran from his mangled vlade,

And his helm was cleft in twain.
And ye might hear, ere midnight deep.

The bell of the grey tower toll, And the mass of the monk, through the lege slabe

For the rest of Lord Dacre's soul F d.

RURAL AMUSEMENTS.

IMPROMPTU, ON BEEING A PAIR OF PRINTS, OF WHICR THR LINES ABE

DESCRIPTIVE.

'Twas in the lovely month of May,

When village malds are deckt in smiles,
That Cupid rose at early day,

Prepared with all his wonted wiles.
Ere long a cottage met his eye,

With woodbines graced and flow'rets trim,
Wherein he heard a maiden sigh,

As blushingly she looked on him.
Quick, quick the casement open flew,

And soon young Love was usher'd in,
By two fair nymphs, named Anne and Sue,

With whom he toyed, and thought no sin.
Alas! their mirth soon changed to fear,

For they the leaden slumbers broke
of the old matron, sleeping near,

Who, with a sudden start, awoke.
When first the urchin she espied,

Sporting her daughters' arms between,
"Turn out, turn out," she loudly cried,

“And in this cot no more be seen."
The god put on a surly look,

And still persisted in his play,
On which she straight the besom took,

And with it scared him far away.
Birmingham, April 6, 1825.
