It having been represented to the Publishers, that the Songs and Ballads of the Author of "Lalla Rookh" had never been given to the Public in a form at once complete and easily accessible, they have been induced to collect and print them uniformly with the editions of "The Irish Melodies" and "Lalla Rookh," recently published. Besides the well-known "National Airs " and "Sacred Songs," this volume contains all the Songs and Ballads that are included in the collective edition of Mr. Moore's Works, and thus offers, in a small compass, the whole of those beautiful compositions, with many of which, in their musical settings, the public are so familiar.
[See the Alphabetical Index at the end of the Volume.]
HAVE YOU NOT SEEN THE TIMID TEAR.
Have you not seen the timid tear,
Steal trembling from mine eye?
Or caught the murmur'd sigh?
Nor fix'd on you alone?
A heart so much your own?
To you my soul's affections move,
Devoutly, warmly true;
One long, long thought of you.
If still my truth you'll try;
I'll bless your name, and die!
