jni;"'Wyfc" The Indian Advocate W. XX. V m gprtl 1908 Jto. 4 WWW Cfje 2Beto2rop in Opting. How pure! how bright is the tiny thing! It beams where the birds of the morning sinjr It looks like the tear from an angel's eye. Or a pearl that has dropped from the vernal sky To deck the silvery robe of the dawn, As it weds the flowers on the grassy lawn. In the silver cup of the daisy it lies; It smiles on the lark as he upward flies; In a chariot of cloud it shall glide to the sun: On a pathway of incense its course shall be run It returns again on a sunset ray, And forgets in its slumber the sports of the day. The emblem of virtue unsullied it seems The emblem of beauty we see in our dreams; 'Tis a pledge of faith, by the breeze to be given. With amorous sighs to the clouds of heaven. Oh, who can tell, but the fairies keep Their nightly watch where the dew-drops sleep. When the rose unfolds its voluptuous charm, When the sun is high, and the earth grows warm 'Tis then that the dew-drop shines most bright, 'Tis then that it rivals the diamond's light, As it bids farewell to the fairy scene, And melts into air where its bower has been. mU .Jirfrf JjrJfLidtULJ&knh nA hi ir I1 .&.
