The subsequent poems were written at the request of my friend, the Hon. D. Kinnaird, for a Selection of Hebrew Melodies, and have been published with the music, ar. ranged by Mr. BRAHAM and Mr. NATHAN.
SHE WALKS IN BEAUTY.
1. She walks in beauty, like the night
Of cloudless climes and starry skies; And all that's best of dark and bright
Meet in her aspect and ber eyes: Thus mellow'd to that tender light
Which heav'n to gaudy day denies.
2. One shade the more, one ray the less,
Had half impair'd the nameless grace
Or softly lightens o'er her face;
how dear their dwelling place.
