Absence (vignette 19)

Written in Derbyshire, by the same Friend.

When recollection brings to mind,
The kindred ties I've left behind,
The converse gentle and refin'd,
I grieve!

Deep the regret, the pain extreme,
And yet I fondly love the dream,
And find the sad, delightful theme

It bids all present forms decay,
All present feelings fade away;
Impeding distance, long delay
Are o'er!

Fancy, so active in the gloom,
Till some one enters in the room,
Can all the images of home

Alas! when weeks, and months are past,
Shall I that home behold at last,
Which even the dark clouds overcast

Lest one of all the cares that dart
Like arrows round each thoughtful heart,
May pierce ere then some vital part
I fear!

Believing Love Was All A Bubble (vignette 18)
Written jointly with a particular Friend, after a conversation similar to the subject, with the Damon of the Story. --------Believing love was all a bubble,And wooing but a needless trouble,Damon grew fond of posied rings,And many such romantic things;But whether it were Fortune's spite,That study wound his brain too tight,Or that his fancy play'd him tricks,He could not on the lady fix. He look'd around, And often found,A damsel passing fair; "_She's good enough,_" he then would cry, And rub
