Poetry.

(For the Am. Bap. Mag.

Lines written after recovery from a fever.
AS Ætna burns with unabated heat,
And from his crater pours forth scorching flame,
So rag'd my fever-feeble nature yet
Recoils to think how shook this mortal frame.
Philosophy! where then was thy support?
And Reason! where, O where thy boasted power?
And Resolution ! how wert thou the sport
Of every pain and fear in that sad hour!
How, like the ship, that, rudderless, is driven
By gales at random on tempestuous seas,
Alternate rais'd sublimely now to heav'n,
And sinking now in frightful gaping waves.
The mind itself was in confusion lost,
Controll'd by wild imaginations vain;
Distracted, fearful, anxious, troubled, toss'd-
With hope elated, then depress'd again.
Where then were joy, ambition, av'rice, pride?
What then were wealth, fame, learning, talents, power?
All nature's pleasures in that moment died.
E'en friends could give no comfort in that hour.
But lo! there shone a beacon from afar ;
Though dimmed by clouds, obscur'd by mortal sense,
Its rays were cheering—'twas the Bethlehem Star,
The Christian's hope--it sweetly beckon'd hence.
It led away to peaceful realms above,
An haven for the troubled and distress'd.
It led to God, the source of truth and love ;
It led to Heaven, where weary souls find rest.
0! never, never from my faithful mind
Shall the impressions of that scene depart;
Hear it all people : God is just and kind,
And serve him with a meek and humble heart.

A. W.

0 The Rev. Dr. Staughton, Secretary of the Board of Managers of the Baptist General Convention, in a letter of Oct. 21, 1824, states, that the Board have unanimously elected the Hon. Heman Lincoln, of Boston, Treasurer.
