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 founds far more grateful to the ear Thari the foft notes of distant Aute, at eve, Stealing across the waters.. ZIMMERMAN! Thou draw'ft 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 heals our woes ! 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!
