Here you will find the Poem Sonnet L. of poet Charlotte Smith
FROM THE NOVEL OF CELESTINA. FAREWELL, ye lawns!--by fond remembrance blest, As witnesses of gay unclouded hours; Where, to maternal friendships' bosom prest, My happy childhood past among your bowers. Ye wood-walks wild!--where leaves and fairy flowers By Spring's luxuriant hand are strewn anew; Rocks!--whence with shadowy grace rude nature low'rs O'er glens and haunted streams!--a long adieu! And you!--O promised Happiness!--whose voice Deluded Fancy heard in every grove, Bidding this tender, trusting heart, rejoice In the bright prospect of unfailing love: Though lost to me--still may thy smile serene Bless the dear lord of this regretted scene.
