WRITTEN IN

ZIMMERMAN's SOLITUDE,

[ocr errors]

BY A YOUNG LADY.

AIL! melancholy fage, whofe thoughtful eye
Shrunk from the mere spectator's careless gaze,

And in retirement fought the social smile,

The heart-endearing afpect, and the voice

Of foothing tenderness, which Friendship breathes,

And which founds far more grateful to the ear
Than the foft notes of diftant Aute, at eve,
Stealing across the waters. ZIMMERMAN!'
Thou draw'ft not SOLITUDE as others do,
With folded arms, with penfive, Nun-like ait,
And tearful eye, averted from mankind.

No! warm, benign, and cheerful, the appears
The Friend of Health, of Piety, of Peace!
The kind Samaritan that heals our woes!
The Nurse of Science, and of future Fame
The gentle harbinger: her meek abode

Is that dear home which ftill the virtuous heart,
E'en in the 'witching maze of Pleasure's dance,
In wild Ambition's dream, regards with love;
And hopes, with fond Sincerity, to pafs
The evening of a long-protracted day
Serenely joyful there!
