Four excelent songs  (1826) 
The Voice of her I Love


How sweet, at close of eve,
The harp's responsive sound,
How sweet the vows that ne'er deceiv
And deeds by virtue crown'd,

How sweet to sit beneath a tree,
In some delightful grove,
But ah! more soft, more sweet to me
The voice of her I love

Whene'er she joins the village train,
To hail the new-born day:
Melliflous notes compose each stra
Which Zephyrs wait away.

The frowns uf fate I calmly bear,
In humble sphere I move,
Content and blest whene'er I hear,
The voice of her I love.
