NEW MONTHLY MAGAZINE.

THE BIRTH OF THE NEW YEAR.

BY HORACE SMITH, ESQ.

I.

THANK God! dark Eighteen-forty-eight hath pass'd
Away at last.
Worker of woe !-none, none shall shed a tear

Upon thy bier,

But gladsome hearts shall bear it to the tomb
Where sleep the world's dead years,-Time's crowded catacomb.

II.

No bell shall toll, no mourners gather round

But gratulations loud and bosoms light

For who would mourn thy death whose stormy life
Was mad and wanton war, or madder civil strife?

Thy burial ground,

Shall hail thy flight,

III.

E'en as the mould is on thy coffin thrown,

It yields a tone

Of joyous advent, not bereavement's woe.

What means it? Lo!

From that Pandora's box of grief and fear,
In Hope's effulgent form up springs the new born Year.
Jan.-VOL. LXXXV. NO. CCCXXXVII.
