‘Tis night, and the landscape is lovely no more;
    I mourn, but, ye woodlands, I mourn not for you,
For morn is approaching your charms to restore,
    Perfum’d with fresh fragrance and glitt’ring with dew;
Nor yet for the ravage of winter I mourn,
    Kind nature the embryo blossom will save,
But when shall spring visit the mouldering urn?
    Oh! when shall day dawn on the night of the grave?
