[blocks in formation]

Opening our weeping eyes to trace Simple, unnoticed kindnesses, Forgotten notes of tenderness,

Which evermore to us must be
Sacred as hymns of infancy,
Learned listening at a mother's knee.

Thus doth Death speak of our beloved,

When it has laid them low; Then let Love antedate Death's work,

And do this now!

He comes, the month of storms, his features

cast In ice, with train of sleet and whelming flood; With devastation on his stormy blast,

And blighting hopes just in their early bud. He comes, the month of ice and biting frost; And homeless wanderers, shivering in his

breath, Friendless, on waves of fell misfortune tossed, Sink in Despair's dark sea, and welcome

death. He goes, the king of winter's retinue,

And, like a pitying conqueror, bestows Blossoms of flower and fruit, that spring to view To heal the wounds left by his frosts and

snows. He dies, and in his death-throe heaves a sigh That wakes to life sweet Spring's long slumbering eye.

Tinsley's Magazine.

How doth Death speak of our beloved,

When it has laid them lowWhen it has set its hallowing touch

On speechless lip and brow ?

It sweeps their faults with heavy hand, As sweeps the sea the trampled sand, Till scarce the faintest print is scanned.

It shows how such a vexing deed Was but a generous nature's weed, On some choice virtue run to seed;


How that small fretting fretfulness
Was but love's over-anxiousness,
Which had not been had love been less.

Thus doth Death speak of our beloved,

When it has laid them low; Then let Love antedate Death's work,

And do this now!

How doth Death speak of our beloved,

When it has laid them lowWhen it has set its hallowing touch

On speechless lip and brow?

WHEN first the sun dispels the cloudy night,

The glad hills catch the radiance from afar,
And smile for joy. We say, “How fair they

are, Tree, rock, and heather-bloom so clear and

bright!" But when the sun draws near in westering

Enfolding all in one transcendent blaze

Of sunset glow, we trace them not, but gaze
And wonder at the glorious, holy light.
Come nearer, Sun of Righteousness! that we,

Whose swift short hours of day so swiftly run, So overflowed with love and light may be,

Lost in the glory of the nearing Sun, That not our light but Thine, may brightly

shine, New praise to Thee through our poor lives be won!


It takes each failing on our part,
And brands it in upon the heart
With caustic power and cruel art.
The small neglect that may have pained,
A giant stature will have gained
When it can never be explained.
