7 On | Linden | | when the sun was | low, 7 | 7 All | bloodless | lay the un trodden | snow, 7 |

17 And | dark as | winter 17 was the flow 7 | 7 Of Iser | rolling | rapidly. | | | 7 But | Linden | | saw an other | sight 7 | When the drum 7 | beat 7 1 7 at dead of | night

y The darkness | 7 of her | scenery. | | |
7 By | torch and | trumpet | | fast ar | ray'd, 7 |
Each 7 | horseman | drew his battle | blade, 7 |
7 And | furious | every | charger | neighed 7 |
7 To join the dreadful | revelry. | | |
Then 7 | shook the hills 7 1 7 with | thunder | riv-

en, 1
Then 7 | rush'd the steed, 717 to battle | driv-

1 | And 7 | louder than the | bolts of heaven, / Far, 7 | flash'd 7 1 7 the red 7 | 7 ar | tillery. I 7 And / redder | yet 7 17 those | fires shall | glow,

71 7 On | Linden's hills of blood-stain'd | snow, 7 |

Can | pierce the war-clouds | rolling | dun; 7 |

Shout in their sulphurous | canopy. / II 7 The I combat | deepens. | | | On 7 17 ye | brave

[blocks in formation]

O for | evening's | brownest / shade; 7 |

| Where the breezes I play 7 | 7 by | stealth, 7 | 7 In the forest- | cinctured | glade, 7 |

Round the hermitage of | Health : 7| 1 7 While the noon-bright | mountains | blaze, 7 | 7 In the sun's tormenting rays: 7 | I 1 O’er the sick and / sultry | plains, 7 |

Through the | dim 7 | 7 de | lirious | air, 7 | 1 Agonizing | silence | reigns; 7 | 1

7 And the wanness | 7 of des pair. 7| | 1 Nature | faints 7 1 7 with | fervent | heat; 7! Ah! 7 1 7 her | pulse 7 | 7 has | ceas’d to beat. 7 |

Now in | deep and dreadful | gloom, 7 |
Clouds on | clouds 7 17 por | tentous | spread; 7

Black 7 | as if the day of doom, 7 |

Hung o'er | nature's | shrinking | head. 7 1 1 1 Lo, 7 | 7 the lightning | breaks from high ; 7| 1 God is coming || God 7 | 7 is | nigh. 7| | | Hear ye not 7 his chariot | wheels, 7 |

7 As the mighty | thunder | rolls; 7 | Nature, startled | nature, reels, 7 |

7 From the centre | 7 to the poles. 7| | | Tremble | ocean | earth 7 1 7 and sky. 7 1 1 Tremble, | | God 7 1 7 is / passing | by. 711 Darkness / | wild with | horror | forms 7 |

His mys | terious hiding | place; 7 | 1 | Should he | 7 from his | ark of storms 7 |

Rend the veil 7 | 7 and show his face, 7| | 7 At the \ judgment | 7 of his eye 7 | All the universe | 7 would | die. 7 | 1 | Brighter | broader | lightnings | flash, 7 |

Hail and rain, 7 1 7 tem | pestuous | fall, 7 | 1 Louder | deeper | thunders | crash, 7 |

Deso | lation | threatens | all. 7| 11 Struggling | nature | gasps for breath, 7 7 In the | agony | 7 of death. 7| God of vengeance | 7 from a | bove, 7 | While thine | awful | bolts are hurled, 7 | | 0,7 | 7 re | member | | thou 7 | 7 art | love: 7

1 1 1 Spare, 7 | 0, 1 spare a 17 a | guilty | world. 7!

Stay thy | flaming / wrath a | while; 7 |
See thy | bow of promise I smile. 7 1 1 1
Welcome | 7 in the Eastern | cloud 7 |
