'- ‘ HOUGHT once how Theocritus had sung
, Of the sweet years. the dear and wished-for years,
" 0 each one in a gracious hand appears
_‘i To hear a gift for mortals, old or young:
" And, as I mused it in his antique tongue,
I saw, in gradual vision through my tears,
The sweet, sad years, the melancholy years,
Those of my own life, who by turns had flung
A shadow across me. Straightway I was ‘ware,
So weeping, how a mystic Shape did move
Behind me, and drew me backward by the hair;
And a voice said in mastery, while I strove, -
" Guess now who holds thee ? "—" Death, " I said.
The silver answer rang, —“ Not Death, but Love. ”
HE ﬁrst time that the sun rose on thine oath
To love me. I looked forward to the moon
To slacken all those bands which seemed too soon
And quickly tied to make a lasting troth.
Quick-loving hearts, I thought, may quickly loathe;
And, looking on myself, I seemed not one
For such man's love l—more like an out-of-tune
Worn Viol, a good singer would be wroth
To spoil his song with, and which, snatched in haste,
Is laid down at the ﬁrst ill-sounding note.
I did not wrong myself so, but I placed
A wrong on I/ rte. For perfect strains may ﬂoat
‘Neath master-hands, from instruments defaced. ——
And great souls. at one stroke. may do and (lost.
IS, call me by my pet-nsmel let me hear
The name I used to run at, when a child,
From innocent play, and leave the cowslips piled,
To glance up in some face that proved me dear
With the look of its eyes.
Fond voices which, being drawn and reconciled
Into the music of Heaven's undeﬁled,
Call me no longer.
With the same heart, will answer and not wait.
I miss the clear
Silence on the bier,
While I call God—call God l—So let thy mouth
Be heir to those who are now exanimate.
Gather the north ﬂowers to complete the south.
And catch the early love up in the late.
Yes, call me by that naIne, —snd I, in truth,
