Sweet dreams which do not last';

A survey of the past'.

The deeds of earlier years';
With friends that have been long consign'd

To silence and to tears'.

And many a pleasure gone'.

And hopes that fate too early crush'd',

In memory live again.

And muse on prospects flown';
Tint' after tint', fade slow away';
Night comes',--and all are gone.
