The lmisos' aid I did Invoko,
host my attempt should end in smoko;
The BUbtlo spirit tints to mu spoke,
(Tho blow was bat'd—oruol tho stroke);
‘■To bo a poot Is no Joko ;
Bo something olso—else you’ll bo broko I"
In a poot’s hand a flower lay,
It wns a violet so blue;
It chanced a lady passod that way
To clasp her hands and gently say,—
‘ llow lovely is its hue."
The poet smiled and went his way,
He mot my lady’s maid,
And showed her whore tho vlolots lay,—
That she might pluck at brenk of day,
And wear them as ho bade.
My lady's maid made up betimes,
The violets In lior hair;
And while she rend my lady’s rhymes,
My lady saw them forty times
Yet knew not they wero tliero.
The church was burning flames of Are
Fanned by tho East winds flendish lro,
From door and window broke,
And, as he watched tho ourltng wreaths
Mount up to Heaven from spire and eaves,
He murmured ‘‘Holy smoko."
Where'er you go upon tho earth,
A certain man you'll see,
He's now upon tho continent,
And now upon the sea.
