Dost thou idly ask to hear,
At what gentle seasons
Nyitiphs relent, when lovers near
Press the tenderest reasons ?
Ah, they give their faith too oft
To the c:u*eless wooer;
Maidens’ hearts are always soft,
Would that men’s were trueri
■Woo the fair one when around
Eai’ly birds arc singing;
When, o’er all the fragrant ground.
Early herbs arc springing;
When the brookside, brink and grove
All with blossoms laden.
Shine with beauty, breathe of love,—»
Woo the timid maiden.
W'oo her, when, with rosy blush,
Summer eve is sinking.
When, on rills that softly gush
Stars are softly winking ;
When, thro’ boughs that knit the bower,
Moonlight gleams are stealing j
Woo her, till the gentle hour
Wakes a gentler feeling.
Woo her, when autumnal dyes
Tinge the woody mountains.
When the drooping foliage lies
In the half choked fountains;
Let the scene that tells how fast
Youth is passing over,
Warn her, ere her bloom is past,
To secure her lover.
Woo her when the north winds call
At tiie lattice nightly,
When, within the cheerful hall
Blaze the faggots brightly;
W hile the wintry tempest round,
Sweeps the landscape hoary.
Sweeter in her ear shall sound
Love’# delightful story.

this, you will immediately be told, that it

in such observations in ])hysical science
as appertained to iht; journey and its ob

copious details concerning Indian life and
