The Story of the Wares.
Tho moon's palo light is calmly beaming
O'er Verdant Mope- and bosky vale,
The dancing waters, brightly gleaming,
Leap up to kiss our snowy Bail.

Afar thoy keep a coascless beating
Along tho eoho-hnunted shore,
Tho same sad tale they koop repeating
That they have told sinco days of yore.
h I? veart: ?uo an
ey murmur of two lovers, drifting
Upon the bosom of tho lake,
Whilo pencil fcays of moonlight shifting
rVitfi silver fVoBt-work trace thoir wako.
One whip ers lovo to ears that listen
..With tremblings as of balf-afright ,
tyhilo through their drooping lashes glisten
Her eyes, like dew drops in tho light.
Her volvet cheek now glows, now pnlcth,
And flutters like a bird her breast;
Her snowy hand nil idly trailcth
A lily by the wavo caressed.
Her lover's arm now close enfolds her,
Their lips are wedded in a kiss;
Close o'er Iiis swelling heart he holds her,
'"All trembling with octatic blis3.
Some lurking goblin saw their wooing,
His bnleful eyes ablaze with hate,
He sought to compass their undoing
For envy of their happy state.
Ho summoned to tho work unholy
Tho slumbering demon of the wind,
Ho, creeping from his cavern slowly,
Like are assassin Bkulkcd behind.
And pouncing on Iiis prey, he heaved them
All'jholplcsi? to tho yawning deep i
Themndlv-tossing wave received them,
And closed above with angry sweep.
The goblin soized tho maid and bore her
Jn'triumph to hie dark abode :
In vain her lovcrjlingercd for her
Upon the beach with pebbles stewed.
The woods and rocks with his lamenting
Were filled from morn to fall of night;
Tho waters cold know no relenting.
Nor locked they aught of bis sad plight.
And still the waves keep ceaseless beating
Along the ccho-liauntcd shore,
The same sad talo they keep repeating
That they have told since days of yore.
