HARRY M'GLENEN'S BIRTHDAY

AS some fair hill by Autumn's fruit o'ergrown,
   While Summer lingers, seeming loth to part,
Good friend, though life's' autumnal blasts have blown,
And round your head the dark-winged years have flown,
   Your nature basks in sunshine of the heart;
Long in its ray aglow with fruit abound,
   While birthday joy a gladdening garland weaves -
May foliage of loves entwined be found,
That Winter's blanching eyes may see you crowned
   With Friendship's' wreath of glorious tinted leaves.
