THE SINGER.


What tho', in bleak Northumbria's mines,
    His better part of life hath flown,
A planet's shone on him, and shines,
    To Fortune's darlings seldom known;

And while his outer lot is grim,
    His soul, with light and rapture fraught,
Oft will a carol trill, or hymn
    In deeper tones the deeper thought.
