AIRS OF PALESTINE;

& Poem :

BY JOHN PIERPONT, Esq.

I love to breathe, where Gilead sheds her balm ;
I love to walk on Jordan's banks of palm ;
I love to wet my foot in Hermon's dews;
I love the promptings of Isaiah's muse :
In Carmel's holy grots I'll court repose,
And deck my mossy couch with Sharon's deathless rose.
