Example text

But times are altered; trade’s unfeeling train [] Usurp the land and dispossess the swain; 65 Along the lawn, where scattered hamlets rose, Unwieldy wealth, and cumbrous pomp repose; And every want to opulence allied, And every pang that folly pays to pride. These gentle hours that plenty bade to bloom, 70 Those calm desires that asked but little room, Those healthful sports that graced the peaceful scene, Lived in each look, and brightened all the green; These far departing seek a kinder shore, And rural mirth and manners are no more.

405 Have we not seen, at pleasure’s lordly call, The smiling long-frequented village fall; Beheld the duteous son, the sire decayed, The modest matron, and the blushing maid, Forced from their homes, a melancholy train, 410 To traverse climes beyond the western main; [] Where wild Oswego spreads her swamps around, [] And Niagara stuns with thundering sound? [] Even now, perhaps, as there some pilgrim strays [] Through tangled forests, and through dangerous ways; 415 Where beasts with man divided empire claim, And the brown Indian marks with murderous aim; There, while above the giddy tempest flies, [] And all around distressful yells arise, The pensive exile, bending with his woe, 420 To stop too fearful, and too faint to go, [] Casts a long look where England’s glories shine, [] And bids his bosom sympathize with mine.

She once, perhaps, in village plenty blest, Has wept at tales of innocence distressed; Her modest looks the cottage might adorn, 330 Sweet as the primrose peeps beneath the thorn; Now lost to all; her friends, her virtue fled, Near her betrayer’s door she lays her head, And pinched with cold, and shrinking from the shower, With heavy heart deplores that luckless hour, 335 When idly first, ambitious of the town, She left her wheel and robes of country brown. 56 Do thine, sweet Auburn, thine, the loveliest train, Do thy fair tribes participate her pain?
