While its spring my life retains,
And the blood bounds through my veins.
Aged people passed along,
Seeming as if never young;
And t thought their state trom me
Very far indeed to be. •
But Age met me on the way, "--
Unexpectedly, one day
I supposed him passing -on,
To attend some,
And a wide berth, to go by,
Gave his reverence, rather`sly.
Yet I bowed and touched day hat,

"And"—l added, sonieWhatflurried-- -
"Just , now, sir, I own I'm hurried...
You have business, too,' said I.
"Therefore, reverend. sir good bye !"
But, he smiled; and, with a look
Too familiar, would have took
My reluctant hand in his,
Had I not avoided this. •
Though so civil, all the while,
I disliked his toothless smile ;

For a tete-a-tete with him. . .

Now; like gold Hylierion's; theY,'

Yet the honor I'd forego.
"Friend," said he, "your haste , appears
Unbecoming for your years.
I have business, as yo u say ;
But, 'tis with yourself, to-day !"
This unlooked for compliment
Through my veins a shiver Ant ; -
And the case of .Felit shot,
