There's a little brook-al morning, dashing '
down the mountain side.
Lillies stoop to wash their petals la the
streamlets crystal I Idei
Shady treetoiis n e.-t abovo It, eresses sparkle
In the spray,
Willows tremble on the surface aslt murmurs
on Its way;
Now 'tis deep and stilt, reflecting back the
woodland's ruelliw shade; '.
Now 'tis laughing, liaibiag. leaping lo the ,
mountain's wild cascade) ;
Now In sunshine, now In shadow; even happy.
pure and free
And the little brook goes boundluj down tbe ('
mountain to the sea. N
There are empty banks at evening, where tbt
little brooklet lay,
Portha snowy drifts that fed It now bavei
melted all away;
All the echoes now are sleeping, tor the water-
fall Is still
Uow those green and shady woodlands miss-
that little iprintlde rill!
Uow they miss the sparkling rlplets, where
tbe current plunged along.
While the forest listens vainly for the cascade
It bad deepened some, and broadened, as It
wandered o'er the leu.
Now the brook has left the mountain and has
bounded to the sea.
There Is one we'll miss to-morrow, wbsa tbe
morning bell shall call;
We will miss ber In the classroom, we will
miss ber In the hall;
Loud tbe bell may peal the summons, over vil
lage, plain and vale,
Kcbolng softly from the hilltop, lingering sad
ly In the dale;
Trembling, sighing In tbs churchyard, where
the drooping willows weep.
But It will not wake our schoolmate trom her
long and silent sleep.
She has learned life's final lesson and her
snliit now Is free.
Bbe has bounded, like tbe brooklet down tbs
mountain to the sea.
