ZIMMERMAN'S SOLITUDE, ...

BY A YOUNG LADY...

H AIL! melancholy fage, whose thoughtful eye

Shrunk from the mere spectator's careless gaze,
And in retirement fought the social smile,
The heart-endearing aspect, and the voice
Of foothing tenderness, which Friendship breathes,
And which sounds far more grateful to the ear
Than the foft notes of distant Aute, at eve,
Stealing across the waters. . ZIMMERMAN!'
Thou draw't nøt SOLITUDE as others do,
With folded arms, with pensive, 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 healš our wões !
The Nurse of Science, and of future Fame
The gentle harbinger: her meek abode
Is that dear home which still 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 pass
The evening of a long-protracted day
Serenely joyful there! .
