Breakfast

A dinner party, coffee, tea,
Sandwich, or supper, all may be
In their way pleasant. But to me
Not one of these deserves the praise
That welcomer of new-born days,
_A breakfast_, merits; ever giving
Cheerful notice we are living
Another day refresh'd by sleep,
When its festival we keep.
Now although I would not slight
Those kindly words we use "Good night,"
Yet parting words are words of sorrow,
And may not vie with sweet "Good morrow,"
With which again our friends we greet,
When in the breakfast-room we meet,
At the social table round,
Listening to the lively sound
Of those notes which never tire,
Of urn, or kettle on the fire.
Sleepy Robert never hears
Or urn, or kettle; he appears
When all have finish'd, one by one
Dropping off, and breakfast done.
Yet has he too his own pleasure,
His breakfast hour's his hour of leisure;
And, left alone, he reads or muses,
Or else in idle mood he uses
To sit and watch the vent'rous fly,
Where the sugar's piled high,
Clambering o'er the lumps so white,
Rocky cliffs of sweet delight.

As busy Aurelia, 'twixt work and 'twixt play, Was lab'ring industriously hard To cull the vile weeds from the flow'rets away, Which grew in her father's court-yard; In her juvenile anger ver she found, She pluck'd, and she pull'd, and she tore; The poor passive suff'rers bestrew'd all the ground; Not a weed of them all she forbore. At length 'twas her chance on some nettles to light (Things, till then, she had scarcely heard nam'd); The vulgar intruders call'd forth

Hymn 1:60 (our Souls Shall Magnify The Lord)
The virgin Mary's song; or, The promised Messiahborn, Luke 1. 46 &c.Our souls shall magnify the Lord,In God the Saviour we rejoice;While we repeat the Virgin's song,May the same spirit tune our voice.(The Highest saw her low estate,And mighty things his hand hath done:His overshadowing power and graceMakes her the mother of his Son.Let every nation call her bless'd,And endless years prolong her fame;But God alone must be ador'd;Holy and reverend is his Name.)To those that fear and trust the LordHis mercy stands for ever sure:From age to age his promise lives,And the performance is secure.He spake to Abr'am and his
