The Indian Advocate ft v Vol XXL gpril 1909 $0.4. ";f or tofjen tfie potoer of imparting joj is equal to tfje toill, tfie fwman Soul requires no otfjer fjeaben." (Shelley.) "This is the place where Thou didst bid me stand, And work and wait; I thought it was a plot of fertile land, To tend and cultivate. Flower and fruit I said are surely there, In rich earth stored; And I will make of it a garden fair For Thee my Lord. ''Lo! it is set where only bleak skies frown, ' With rank weeds sown, And over it the vagrant thistle-down Like dust is blown. v 4 Long have I labored, but the barren soil No crop will yield, This have I won for all my ceaseless toil A bare ploughed field." "Nay, even here, where thou didst strive and weep, Some sunny morn Others shall come with joyous hearts and reap The full-eared corn. Yet is their harvest to thy labor due, On Me 'twas spent Are not the furrows driven straight and true? Be thou content." Christian Burke JB
