TO THE INFANT PRINCESS. Fair scion nf Brunswick ! sweet blossom of May I Ever blest be thy birth, ever hallowed this day ! By the morning of youth, by the noon-tide ef age, In tbe Bard's brightest theme, tbe Historian's page. Thy Albion receives thee, a gift from above, "With the warmth ofa Parent, the welcome of love; "Whilst Peace bids her doves olive duplets to bring, And deck the green altar of life-giving Spring. Infant Princess! thy earliest carol and smile, Will salute tbe white cliffs of thy sea-belted Isle, Where (he valorous arms of the brave and the free, When war rears a standard, will glitter for thee. Tbe prayers of a nation can greatly prevail. Since the Angel we mourned again we may hail : Blest scion of Brunswick ! prolonged be thy day, And in blisses matured be the blossom of May !
