THE NIGHT-BLOOMING JASMINE.
In a sheltered sun-kissed corner
On this big Earth-star of ours,
There was once a lovely garden
Hushing o'er with fragrant flower.
Sorao fair blossoms open their petals
To receive the sun's 6rst ray,
And displayed with joy their beauty
Through the whole long summer
Others waited till the noouday
Poured its Hood of heat and glare
Kre they shed their heavy perfume
On the languid sultry air.
And a few wee just loo lazy
To fold their petals till
Old Kin;; Sol turned for the journry
To his couch behind the hill.
But one flower bid in ilcnoo.
Through' the long du) glowing
Her fair budsol croamy whilonpss
ITndcr leave of glony green. '
Till the hudp oi night had fnllon
And the star1; begemmed the sky,
Or the moon swept in her glory
Through the azure vault on high.
Then wide-open flew their petals
And the waxen Mars bclaw
Raise their faces to the sky-stars
Through the teudcr evening glow.
And their sweet mysterious peifumo
Floated mi the 'luahcned air.
While tin- dew.dinpA lull liko kisses
On their petals waven fair.
As their fragrance
Spread upon the cool uight breeze,
L . a tender hispcrcd fluttering
Stirred among the watchful trees;
And a burst of perfect
Floated downward from above.
As the nightingale thrilled foltly
Her sweet song of perfect love.
Then the song and purfume mingled,
Vncu ol flower and voiee of bird,
Till the soft night breezes trpmbled
And the heaty branches stirred,
And the wild thing of the woodland,
And the moon and stars above,
Listening in the purple darkness,
Heard sweet Nature's Song of Love
