A young rose in. the summer time
Is beautiful to me,
And glorious the many stars
That glimmer on the sea;
But gentle words and loving hearts, ' .
And hands to clasp ray own, ;
Are better than the brightest fiowers; "
Or stars that ever shone!
The sun may warm the grass of life,
The dew the drooping ilowcr,
And eyes grow bright and watch the light
Of autumn's opening hour;
But words that breathe of tenderness,
And smiles we know are true,
Are warmer than the summer-time,
And brighter than the dew.
It is not much the word can give,
With all its subtle art
And gold of gems aroiot the things
To satisfy the hart. " '
But, oh! if those jvho cluster round
The alter and the hearth,
Have gentle words and loving smile?
How beaulitul is earih!

a Kossuth hat with a fox's tail stuck in it.
