CONTENT. AN ORIGINAL MANUSCRIPT. RETIR'CI 'neaih. a summit that skirts ihe high road, And screenM from the north wind's dread moan, With a lawn in the front, 1 securely might find Content—in a cottage my own. With a swall spot of grouud, that I might enjoy, a hours alone, To read, or to work, or to sew a few seeds, Content—in a cottage my own. Delighted to see the swept Sow'rets arise, That. so soon, with heaven's blessing, have grown; And to banish from hence every trouble, and live Content—in the cottage my own. But still there is something that is not possess'd, A wish my heart cannot disown That with me a faithful friend too may enjoy, Content-in this cottage my own. With reading or working, our time to beguile, And all our past follies atone; The evening of life shall come gently on, Content—in this cottage our own. And then, as our lamp shall grow fainter apace, And its trembling light iadeth away We will sink both together in enviable sleep, Centt'nt-from our cottage of clay. Then sleep both together, till that solemn hour, When all convuls'd nature shall groan And the trumpet of judgment, so awful to hear, Claims, our poor cottage, its own. Then rising to leave behind in the earth. Our wither'd poor cottage of clay We shall mount with our heavenly guide out of sight, Content—to the regions of day. Then mixing with cherubs and seraphim ttn And our once belov'd friends goae before; We have nought left to do, but to love and to 71 praise, Contented—our God to adore.
