TUE SONO OF imp BROOK.
Prom the spring beneath the beeelaree,
Where the babbling waters rise; '
There began my wayward wanderings,
'Nestle the blue of summer skies.
Like a thread of liquid crystal,
By rote fairy fingers span—
Lengthning out the tiny current,
Day and fight I tireless ran, - •
Throrig,h the meadow, where the daises
Fleck the emerald turf with anew, s
With the sunshine on my bosom,
Singing merrily I go.
Through the wood, with troops of shadovis
Dancing to the restless leaves
Where-the wild vines o'er me streaming
Many a quaint, weired chaplet weaves.
And the - sun, like golden rah:wimps,
Filters through the oaken screen, -
Where the moss-beds sal the litehens
Edge my path with tufts of green
Down tho rooky kill-side sliding
In and out from stair to stair, .
Till. midway the rocks'o'ersweeping,
One swift plung, the last, I dare.
Then, from out the white roam stealing,
Past the mill I make my way,
Where the ponderous wheel hangs dripping,
Green with moss for many a day;
Underneath. the little - foot-bridge
Whine the sunburnt children fish,
Wiith their bare feet dangling downward
For my cooling lips to 'kiss.
Hiding in the rocky shadows, .
Shining by the dusty way;
Murmuring by the lowly cottage,
Whispering 'neath old turrets gray.

the heart we bear within us ,
Maketh life a sigh, or song.

Sweet cheerer of the weary.hwt,
Spread thy sweet sunlight o'er my way,
And bid each gloomy thought depart
Before the brightness of thy ray.
The past with all its weight of weir),
Like a dim spectre haunts my paib,_
Where the dark shadows come and go .
And storm clouds pour their frightful wrath
The mystic future darkly lies -
In clouds and mists, whose murky gloom.
Shrouds, like a pall the leaden skies,
Drear,as the midnight of the tomb. •
I stand-in doubt and trembling dread,
AnYh t e l si P t i et i g r e t ti l a i g tO ld irei l iP kil4 fear'
That leads me on life's journey here.
0, Hope, I would thine aid invoke,
Till my imprisoned thoughts are free,
And the dark spell of gloom is broke,
Which melancholy cast o'er me.
Come, with , the healing on thy wings,
And images of joy. and love—
Sweet as the song an angel singe
In the fair elimes i of bliss above,
And I will look with hopeful trust
In the far future yet to come,.
Till I shall drop my weary dnit,
And soar to my eternal home.}
