Extempore On Some Commemorations Of Thomson

Dost thou not rise, indignant shade,
And smile wi' spurning scorn,
When they wha wad hae starved thy life,
Thy senseless turf adorn?

Helpless, alane, thou clamb the brae,
Wi' meikle honest toil,
And claught th' unfading garland there--
Thy sair-worn, rightful spoil.

And wear it thou! and call aloud
This axiom undoubted--
Would thou hae Nobles' patronage?
First learn to live without it!

To whom hae much, more shall be given,
Is every Great man's faith;
But he, the helpless, needful wretch,
Shall lose the mite he hath.

In The Harbor - Decoration Day
Decoration Day Sleep, comrades, sleep and rest On this Field of the Grounded Arms,Where foes no more molest, Nor sentry's shot alarms!Ye have slept on the ground before, And started to your feetAt the cannon's sudden roar, Or the drum's redoubling beat.But in this camp of Death No sound your slumber breaks;Here is no fevered breath, No wound that bleeds and aches.All is repose and peace, Untrampled lies the sod;The shouts of battle cease, It is the Truce of God!Rest, comrades, rest and sleep! The thoughts of men shall beAs sentinels to keep

Epigram On Seeing Miss Fontenelle In A Favourite Character
Sweet naivete of feature, Simple, wild, enchanting elf, Not to thee, but thanks to Nature, Thou art acting but thyself. Wert thou awkward, stiff, affected, Spurning Nature, torturing art; Loves and Graces all rejected, Then indeed thou'd'st act a part.(The end)Robert Burns's poem: Epigram On Seeing Miss Fontenelle In A Favourite Character
