THE VISION OF BELSHAZZAR.
On golden throne,
He sits in state.
Around him wait
And, nearer seen, his lovely queen
Young beauty smiles,
Hearts that dance, and eyes that laugh ;
Lo! the monarch lies-
Close his raptured eyes.
Shrill and strong, breaks the song
The battle and the brave.
Those vessels shine with Heathen wine,
The song of triumphing.
VI. “ Who comes, in his glory, from Babylon's waters, Devouring the earth in the wrath of his slaughters? Who comes, like the sun, in the joy of the morn, His blood-reeking banners by victory borne?
In the strength of his shields, the Assyrian comes down,
Starting from the banquet board."
The cold flesh quivers on the bone.
There rivetted—it gazes glazed.
Traces the characters of doom.
O’er all that gorgeous room,
Chaldea's Seers, aghast,
Belshazzar's bape !
Burning in brightness.
Reverend in whiteness.
He saw, he read, he spoke ;
As the arrow from the bow,
Starts he to life,
Flashes the flame of its glances;
Kindled and wild he advances ;
