A PORTRAIT.

By OLIVER WENDELL HOLMES, an American poet, who, like our own Hood, strangely mingles pathos and humour. He is a son of the late Rev. Dr. Holmes, the historian, and was born in Cambridge, Massachusetts, on August 29, 1809. He entered Harvard University in 1825, and after taking his degree, commenced the study of the law, but abandoned it for medicine. After a long visit to the medical schools of Paris, he began practice in Boston in 1830, and in 1838 was elected Professor of Anatomy and Physiology at Dartmouth College. He has since been elected Professor of Physiology in Cambridge (U. S.) University, which chair he continues to fill. He is one of the most popular of the American poets in his own country, but his merits are only beginning to be known in England.

A STILL, Sweet, placid, moonlight face,
And slightly nonchalant,

Which seems to claim a middle place
Between one's love and aunt,
Where childhood's star has left a ray
In woman's sunniest sky,
As morning dew and blushing day
On fruit and blossom lie.

And yet, and yet I cannot love
Those lovely lines on steel;
They beam too much of heaven above
Earth's darker shades to feel;
Perchance some early weeds of care
Around my heart have grown,
And brows unfurrow'd seem not fair,
Because they mock my own.

Alas! when Eden's gates were seal'd,
How oft some shelter'd flower
Breathed o'er the wanderers of the field,

Like their own bridal bower;

Yet sadden'd by its loveliness,

And humbled by its pride,

Earth's fairest child they could not bless,--
It mock'd them when they sigh'd.
