Sonnet Written at Woodstock, in the County of Kilkenny, the Seat of William Tighe.

June 30, 1809.

1 SWEET, pious Muse! whose chastely graceful form
2 Delighted oft amid these shades to stray,
3 To their loved master breathing many a lay
4 Divinely soothing; oh! be near to charm
5 For me the languid hours of pain, and warm
6 This heart depressed with one inspiring ray
7 From such bright visions as were wont to play
8 Around his favoured brow, when to disarm
9 The soul subduing powers of mortal ill,
10 Thy soft voice lured him "to his ivyed seat,"
11 "His classic roses," or "his heathy hill;"
12 Or by yon "trickling fount" delayed his feet
13 Beneath his own dear oaks, when, present still,
14 The melodies of Heaven thou didst unseen repeat.
