With stiller breathing and a closer eye.
He muses with a long and earnest glance,
looting the things his playmates never
'ausing to see the water lilies dance
To the soft music of the wave-splashed
He wonders none beside himself can find
Something to wonder at in woods and
And knows not that his fresh, untutored mind,
Is dreaming busily the poet s dreams.
He feels the immortal light of spirit live
Within his breast but knows not that in
To come that warm and flashing ray will
The brightest rainbow through the bitter
Life's sand's run on, the wayward child is
All that foreboding tongues erst prophesied;
Reflection's cloud has darkened on the brow,
And all youth promised, I ime has not denied.
The cheeks have less of roundness and of red,
The grey eye has become more soltly deep;
The lips are thinner, but the spirit shed .
Around them tells that leeling does not
And still he takes the lonely way, and still
He saunters idly, seeming to love best
That which he loved of old the wimpling
And the thick wood that holds the owlet's
Yet does he lean against the straggling tree,
When Summer flings her blossoms at his
And still he thinks the whirring of the bee
And distant tinkling shcepbcll music sweet.
Yet doe he wander on a starry night,
When crystal dew gems glitter on Ihe snd;
Still will he hld upon the mountain heigh
Close questioning with Mature and its uod.
What is he? Hark! the busy voice of Fame
Sounds 'neath the household roof from
heart to heart,
And heralds foith his glory and his name,
In notes whose echoes never shall depart.
What is he Ask it of his own proud breast,
That glows amid cold poverty and wrong;

Here is the eulogy which my my lord of Ni
h polis pronounces upon him, in a letter in
which he feelingly deplores his death. " The
mission in Oceanica' has lest much in the
denth of its founder His application to his
missionary duties, his zeal for the service of
God, made him a man truly apostolic; the
intrepidity with which he always faced dan
gers when laboring for the salvation of souls,
his activity and his prudence, the facility
with which he spoke nnd wrote the language
of his neophytes, made him formidable to his
adversaries. They can claim the credit of
causing his death; but I hope that even his
death will be profitable to the mission."
