OBSERVATION, On an EVENING.

1 Sweet and refreshing are the dews,
2 That deck the ev'ning shade;
3 Sweet are the winds that sweep the plains,
4 And whisper through the glade.
5 We faint beneath the sultry sun,
6 But when the day is o'er,
7 We gladly meet the ev'ning shade,
8 And think of toil no more.
