THE UTTLE EARTH ANGEL.
1 nsed to n ad of angels.
Bat their eyes were always bine.
And as mine were black, I'd wonder
If I could be one too.
I tried to li ive our Father,
And my neighbor as myself.
But when people saw my eyes
They sail . "A wicked little elf."
I loved Ooc's birds and flowers.
And the t park ling little springs,
Wanderinp down the mountain side '
With sue strange murmuring.
1 longed to be an angel.
And dwe.l with God in heaven.
But thought I never could, because
My hair was black and even.
In vain I searched the pictures.
Since everywhere 1 found
That aiiiieh all were very fair.
While I was tanned and browned.
But one day, when dreaming
Of all that was to be.
There came like lightning's gleaming
This hupi y thuught to me:
Altho' like niseis up in heaven
I may not ever be.
Yet like an angel on the earth
My Father would have me.
So, kneelim: in the sunlight.
Among the (lowers and birds.
Out throiili the forest's stillness
There wei.t to Clod these words:
"Oh, Fiither, If I am too brown
To dwell ith Hiijiels fair.
Yet let me 1 e one on the earth.
And serve thee everywhere:
And make l ie live a lont;, long tine,
I'ntil my lair turns white:
I'ntil in tli siirlit I urn fair
And like i n angel bright."

"Well, it was plain that the man would

that one of the tiien in the wrecking gang
