The summer comes; the jester gay
Takes up his festive pen,
And seeks in light aud aiiy way
To stir the wiu of men.
Flo gluuces through Iiis note book worn,
There comes a half heard sigh,
And for each page well thumbed and torn
lie breathes a soft good-by.
The single oyster tn the stew,
That dear old lonesome friend,
The sleigh ride kiss all safe from view;
Their season's at on end
The parlor gaslight burning low;
The bill that is so high;
He sees them in procession go,
And breathes u soft good-by.
New themes thero are, aud plenty, too,
lint those have lingered long,
Aud helped somo paragraph to brew,
Or stirred some jingling song.
The summer girl, the iou man's greed,
The youth, and picnic pie
Are here?and as the old ones speed
He breathes a loft good-by.
