TIHE NIGHT WIND.
The beggarly blast is out again to-night,
Wild and defiant ;
Hark, how it bellows in its piteous plight,
Like a mad giant I
Now, with a haggard hand upon the trees,
The big bough crashes;
Now, peering in npon its lieshlees knees,
Knocks at the sashes.
Denied admittance, hear its horrid shout
Of idiot laughter,
Flinging its gaunt and knotty arms about,
Shaking each rafter.
Thwarted, with savage thrtnat it beats retreat,
Muttering deep curses,
Like God-defying mortals, when they meet
With life's reverses;
Like unto mortals, turning in their spleen
To similar matters,
Tearing its garments now, with lingers lean,
To shrediess tatters.
Hark, from the vext, tempestuous laden cloud
The rain is falling ;
How the fiend qualfs it, gulping deep and
With thirst appalling.
Naked, restless, drinking in the rain
With drunken swagger ;
Now boisterous, now subdued with sudden
Its footsteps stagger.
Further and further, from thie far off gloom,
We hear its moaning,
Till, weak and helpless, in some empty tomb
The wretch falls groaning.
Fainter and fainter-and it sounds no more,
Its breath's expended ;
Let us go forth ; the demnt's rnign is o'er
The night is ended.
