The First Snow Fall.
The sweet nnd simple beauty of thi poem by
Jami.s Kcskli. Lowk.ll, lias been rarely excel
led. U ia a tiuo in tact as it is pocticul in ex
pression, The snow had begun in the gloaming,
And busily all tho night
II. id been heaping tic Kl and highway
With n silcnco deep and while.
F.vcry pine nnd Crnml brmlock,
Wore ermine too dear for an curl,
And the poorest tij on the elm treo
Wan ti.lgcd huh deep with pearl.
From ahc.la ncw-rnnfej with Carrnrc,
C'nine Chanticlecr'a muflled frow,
The atiir rail wcreanfteticd to swan's down,
And s'ill fluttered down the snow.
I thought nf a mound in swpot Auburn,
Where s little bciidstnno stood,
How tho Ihtkea wero folding it gently.
As did robins the babes in tho wood.
Up po!to our own little Mabel,
tayln3 "Father, who mukrs it tnowi"
And I told of the good Allhilher
Who care for us nil below.
Agnin I looked nt tho snowfall,
And thought nf the leaden sky
That arched o'er our tirst great sorrow,
When that mound was heaped so high.
I remembered the gradual patirnro
That fell from that cloud liko snow,
Flakoby flnko, healing and hiding
1 ho scar of tlmt deep stnbbcd woa.
And again to the child I wbNpercd,
"The snow that huihcth all,
Purling tho merciful Father
Alono can make it fall "
Then, with eyes that saw not, I kissed her,
And she, kicsing back, could not know
That my kiss was given to hcrsutcr
Fuldcd tloo under tiio tlcepniug mow.

Thou sparkling bowl! thou sparkling bowl 1
Though lips of bards thy brim may press
And eyes of beauty o'er thee roll,
And song and dance thy power confess,
I will not touch thee, for thoio clings
A scorpion to thy side, that stings I
Thou crystnl glass 1 liko Elon's tree,
Thy melted ruby tempts tho eye,
And, as from that, there comes from theo
Tho voico " Thou shall not surely die 1"
I dare not lift thy liquid gem
A snuko is twined around thy stem t
Thou liquid Cro 1 like that which glowed
For Paul, upon Mclita's shore,
Thou'st been upon my guests bestowed ;
lint thou shalt warm my housa no more,
For, wherosoo'er thy radiance fulls,
forth, from thy heat, a viper crawls !
What though ol geld the goblet be,
FuiboMod with branches of the vine,
Ilei.euth whouo burnithed leaves we see
Such clusters as pnurcd out tho wins 1
Among these leaves an addor hangs,
I fear him tor I've felt his fangs.
The Hebrew, who tho desert trod,
And felt the (Jury serpent's bite,
Looked up to thu ordained Go(,
And found that lite was in the sight t
So the worm bittcu's ilery veins
Cool whon ho drinks what (Jod ordains.
Yo gracious clouds ! yo deep, cold wells I
Ye gems from mossy rocks, that drip I
Springs that from earth's mysterious cells,
Gush o'er your granite basin's Hp 1
To you I look ; your largess give,
And I Ul drink of you snd lira.
