Sweet Sylvan Lake% in memory's gold/ Is set the time when first my eye,/ From thy green shore beheld thee hold/ Thy mirror to the sunset sky./ No ripple brushed its delicate air;/ Rich silken tints alone were there/ The far opposing shore displayed,/ Mingling its hues, a tender shade. Oh% who could view the scene nor feel/ Its gentle peace within him steal;/ Nor in his inmost bosom bless/ Its pure and radiant loveliness% Alfred B. Street. [P. 6.]
