Nature and Life.
I stood in a shady glade,
On a hot Mid-Summer day,
I drank from a clear, cool spring
That washed all care away.
The shade trees grew straight and tall,
The sun's fiercest rays defied,'
And breezes soft and cool
Played in the ferns on every side.
And I compared this nook with life,
A life that is free from care,
Where we sit in the calm of peace
And the fuutre seems bright and fair.
But I passed from, that shady dell,
To one where the briars grew rank,
I had left behind the trees,
And the spring from which I drank.
The path I traveled was rough,
As I pushed my way through the maze
I compared this dell with life,
A life that had seen better days.
Ah! how often in life
The future seems filled with delightj
We sudenly emerge from the dream
Into darkness where it was light.
Thus we find it in Nature,
Thus we find it in life,
Our lives when full of pleasure
May suddenly turn to strife!
We may journey awhile mid rapture.
The future looks joyous and fair,
But erelong the path is broken,
And we find it filled with care.
But when the pathway smoothens,
And we enter a peaceful glade
We know all about the hot sunshine,
And now can be thankful for shade.
