TO THE LADY E. B. AND THE HON. MISS P.

          A STREAM, to mingle with your favourite Dee,
          Along the VALE OF MEDITATION flows;
          So styled by those fierce Britons, pleased to see
          In Nature's face the expression of repose;
          Or haply there some pious hermit chose
          To live and die, the peace of heaven his aim;
          To whom the wild sequestered region owes
          At this late day, its sanctifying name.
          GLYN CAFAILLGAROCH, in the Cambrian tongue,
          In ours, the VALE OF FRIENDSHIP, let 'this' spot            10
          Be named; where, faithful to a low-roofed Cot,
          On Deva's banks, ye have abode so long;
          Sisters in love, a love allowed to climb,
          Even on this earth, above the reach of Time!
