[ed.] Comparison. (AH)

Addressed to a YOUNG LADY.

1 SWEET stream that winds through yonder glade,
2 Apt emblem of a virtuous maid
[Page 305]
3 Silent and chaste she steals along
4 Far from the world's gay busy throng,
5 With gentle yet prevailing force
6 Intent upon her destin'd course,
7 Graceful and useful all she does,
8 Blessing and blest where're she goes,
9 Pure bosom'd as that wat'ry glass,
10 And heav'n reflected in her face.
