THE ARTIST'S CHAMBER.

A Sketch on the spot.
The room was low and lone, but lingered there,

In careless loveliness, the marks of mind;
The page of chivalry, superb and drear,

Beside a half-filled vase of wine reclined,
Told how romance and gaiety combined.

And there, like things of immortality,
Stood Statues, in their master's soul enshrin'd,
VENUS, with the sweet sinile and heavenly eye,
And the sad, solemn beauty of pale NIOBE.
And scattered round, by wall and sofa, lay
Emblems of thought, that loved from Earth to

spring.
Upon a portrait fell the evening ray,

Touching with splendor many an auburn ring
That reil'd a brow of snow, and crimsoning

The cheek with beauty like an opening rose.
And there lay a guitar, whose silver string
Is murmuring, as the soft wind o'er it flows,
The tones it breath'd on Spanish hills at evening's

close.
