And we kept in her crystal halls a boon OVE roving o'er a flowery mead,

In the lonely hour to cheer him :
Then about his pillow of snow we stole, When as the god, with amorous play,
And we gave to the eye of his dreaming soul Exhausted on the margin lay,
A mirror that shew'd the fair array The young Marilia, arch and wild
Of the loveliest hours that had pass'd away.

And as the wily maiden thought, And we bring it again to bless the sleep

That backing in the tranquil day Of him who serves us meetly:

He dreamed the listless hours away, We watch his bed, for we send forth all

With soft approach the turf she trod, The souls of men from our crystal hall,

His quiver stole, and left the god.

Now did the neighbouring Fauns appear, And the music that dreaming mortals bear Is the distant choir of their native sphere.

And at the theft, with wanton jeer,

Quitting the grottoes rude retreat, We watch the maiden's funeral rite, Triumphantly their joy repeat,

Ere the snowy cheek is shrouded, Cupid awakened at the sound To take again the spirit of light

Of laughter, wildly echoing round, That lived in her clay unclouded : Soon as his unarmed state he knew, And we waft it away to our realms unseen, He thus addressed the jestiug crew, Under icy arches broad and sheerl,
