Excerpt: ... Thy cherished worth shall still retain the power. To soothe the lonely--bless the social hour, And thy remembered virtues light the gloom That death's deep night has gathered o'er thy tomb, RECOLLECTIONS, TO THE MEMORY OF THEOPHILUS PARSONS, LATE CHIEF JCSTlCfc OF THE S. J. C. OF MASSACHCSETTS. Is then that mind, whose all-perceptive eye, Seem'd an imparted light of Deity. That mind which from the sordid earth could soar To worlds where angels tremble and adore; Is that extinguished?--As the sun's low ray, By the cold twilight cloud is borne away--Or like that sun, in heaven's congenial clime, Again to wake, with energy sublime! Hid, but not lost, the undying part shall rise, More pure, more just, more hallowed, and more wiset And as on earth unequalled, and alone, With Gfod's own light the immortal genius shone. Restored to heaven, with saints and angel's there, He breathes the blessing, lifts the guardian prayer. That eye, whose glance, by guileless nature taught, Spoke the full feeling, beamed the unbounded thought, That smile assuring, whose protective charm, Fell on the timid heart, like pity's balm, With temper kind as heaven, whose cheering glow, Shed its warm beams on every shade of woe: That wit spontaneous, whose attractive ease, Careless of pleasing--never failed to please, That moral wisdom winning, yet severe, Which speechless wonder bent entranced to hear. These shall the melancholy thought restore, And weep to think, they live to charm no more. Admired! beloved! to earth's affections lost, But throned in heaven, beyond the seraph host, Angel! or saint! ah deign our griefs to see, Nor let the wanderer memory stray from thee. STANZAS, UrON SEEING AN IMPERFECT SKETCH DESIGNED FROM MEMORY, FOR THE POWERFUL FEATURES OF THE LATE AND EVER LAMENTED...
