THE FESTIVAL OF NAURUZ."
THE moon of Nauruz silvers yet

Spabaun's high tow'r and minarets
Eight times the golden bowl has pour'd
Red nectar on the banquet board,
And nymphs with purple feet have war'd
Their locks in myrrhand amber lav'd.
Lab Illah!.... thrice the holy song
Has rung Shah Sepbi's bow'rs among;
He sleeps on woven down reclind,
While bath'd in balm, the sacred rose

Around his perfum'd pillow glows,
With Shiraaz silver clusters twin'd:
Soft sounds her slumb'ring car surprise-

A form in youthful beauty bright,

Comes like the dream of rich delight, Seen by the love-warm’d poet's eyes.

Such forms their gracious vigil keep,

When rose lipp'd Fouris whisper sleep. « Whenee, and what art thou, form di

vioe?"“ I teas, I am, and shall have been ! A vague unearthly form is mine,

Dinly thro' painted shadows seen.

“ I was the Future ! -1 have slept

Unknown since Time bimself was bore,

"hen on the sun's first glorious morn,
Prophetic Allah paus’d and wept.
He saw me in the depths afar

Of dark and drear Eternity ;
And ere he shap'd the earliest star,

His changeless inission gave to me.
No longer veil'd, no longer dumb,

I visit thy desiring eyes,
From the wide throng of things to come,

Where Happiness for ever lies !
Her shape, her presence, and her places

Men doubt, yet her existence feel;
Thought caunot fix, nor Reason trace,

The glances which her throne reveal. In one pure beam of seeming white,

The rainbow's richest tints they find: And Peace, the soul's unsullied light,

Is ev'ry ray from heav'n combin'd: But when and where! ...... I come to

bring New treasures from the lap of Fate ; Yet thou wilt ask another spring

To open Joy's still distant gate. I am the Present !-Now I lift

The veil which hid my shining brow: That holy veil was Wisdom's gift,

Tho' cluster'd roses crown me now,

* On the eye of this festival, the Persian sovereign was visited by a beautiful stran. ger, who replied, when questioned, “I was the Future, I am the Present, and hall be the Past,"

THE dame,

Thou hear'st not while on flow'rs I tread, Nature's friendly breast was seen,

How swift my down-shod feet are gone; Robed in grass of verdant green; Thou se'est my silver pinions spread, And the turtle, joyful now, Forgetful how they waft me on!

Eager pluck*8 the olive bough; To-morrow, silent, sad, and cold,

With the branch return d the dore, I join the throng of ages past;

Emblems of celestial love! And none shall find the threads of gold Fly, o fly, my dove again, Wove in the veil by Fancy cast

Tell the Virgin of my pain ; O'er dim unshap'd Futurity,

Pity's gentle heart is here, When Youth and Pleasure smild for thee! Can she slight thy tender tear? Age, weeping Age, shall strive in vain Be not timid-hence, awayTo weave that precious veil again.

Stop not, gossip, on the way; I go, and those who watch my track

Swiftly go, and swift return,

Say, is love the virgin's scorn? Thy bounties and thy pomp shall praise ;

Owns her heart the flame of love? But thou unheard shalt call me back

Tell me, does it beat my dove? Again on vanish'd joys to gaze.

Will her secret sighs relieve me? Thy scimitar may stamp imy name

And her tender arms receive me?On earth in adamant or brass

Bid my troubled fancies cease, In vain !-thy tow'rs of wealth and fame

Bring the Olive branch of peace! To darkness with thyself shall pass :
