Montreal (all Clad In Rich Hiemal Robes)

(Written in Winter.)

All clad in rich hiemal robes
By blasts of Boreas plied,
The sovereign City of the North
Sits in majestic pride;
Beside St. Lawrence' noble stream,
Hard by his hidden tide,
She sits, and rears her head aloft
Upon Mount Royal's side.

A crown she wears of richest gems,
Of purest crystal bright,
That sparkle like a maiden's eyes
Which dazzle with delight;
Not gems that glitter best beneath
The courtly lamps by night;
But those whose brilliancy appears
By morning's purer light.

Her sceptre is not mineral
Up-gathered from the dust,
Nor gold, nor silver, long profaned
By man's accursèd lust,
Nor substance base enough to feel
The vitiating rust,
But is a crystalled branch of oak
Just riven by the gust.

"I sit a queen," she proudly says,
"From the Atlantic Main
To where the Rockies to the sky
Their shaggy summits strain,
From where St. Lawrence speeds along
The ocean wave to gain
To where in darkness sleeps the heaven,
Unwaked by Phoebus' wain."

(The end)

The fever burns from morn till eve; I toss upon my bed; And none but heavy hands relieve My aching, heated head. Harsh voices of hard-hearted men Attempt to sympathize; But sympathy is worthless when Love gives it not its rise. Could thy soft hand but soothe my brain, Thy

The Song Of The Summer Cloud The Song Of The Summer Cloud

The Song Of The Summer Cloud
I am arrayed in light and shade, A free-born spirit of air; A fanciful theme like a twilight dream, Or a maiden young and fair. And now I float like a phantom boat With a vague and varying hue, Fading from sight in the beams of light On an ocean clear and blue. And now I am wooed by the wind so rude, As he rushes in fury past, Who his bride doth crown with a darkening frown
