The following Sonnet, an early production of its author (now given from his Poetical Remains, 1819), was accidentally omitted in the body of the present volume:



With silent awe I hail the sacred morn,
That slowly wakes while all the fields are still !
A soothing calm on every breeze is borne;
A graver murmur gurgles from the rill;
And Echo answers softer from the hill;
And softer sings the linnet from the thorn;
The sky-lark warbles in a tone less shrill.
Hail, light serene! lail, sacred Sabbath-morn!

The rooks float silent by in airy drove ;
The sun a placid yellow lustre throws;
The gales, that lately sigh'd along the grove,
Have hush'd their downy wings in dead repose;
The hovering rack of clouds forgets to move;-
So smil'd the day when the first morn arose !
