Oh ! the snow, the beautiful snow,
Filling the sky and the earth below :
Over the house-tops, over the street
Over the heads of the people} ou meet,
Dancing, ?
Skimming along,
Beautiful snow ! it docs no wrong ;
Flying to kiss a fair lady's cheek,
Clingiujr to lips in a troiicsome freak;
Beautiful snow, from the heaven above,
Pure as an angel, gentle as a dove.
Oh! the snow, the beautiful snow.
How the flakes gather and laugh as they go,
Whirling abofit in its maddening fun,
It plays, in its glee with every one.
Hurrying by ?
It lights on the face, it sparkles the eye,
And the dogs, with a bark and a bound,
Snap nt the crystals that eddy nround?
Tin 'own is alive and its he-art in aglow,
To welcome the coming o\ beautiful snow!
How wild the crowd goes swaying along,
j Hailing eac'i other with humor and son,.-.
; How the gay sledges like thctco :;.?ah by,
? Hright for the moment, then la . to the eye?
Dashing they go,
! Over the crust of the beautiful snow:
Snow so pure when it falls from the ?ky,
To be trampled in mud by the crowd refiling
To be trampled and tracked by thousands of feet
Till it blends With the filth in t lie horrible street.
Once I was pure as the snow?but I fc. !
Fell likothe snow-flakes from neaveift'. hell I
Fell to be trampled a* filth in tli>- street;
Fell to be scoffed at, spit on and beat?!
Dreading to die,
Felling my soul to whoever would buy ;
Dealing in shame for a morsel ofbres.
Hating the living and fearing tl;e den :
Merciful Cod I have I fallen so low
And yet 1 was once like th' beautiful snow.
Once I was fair as the beautiful snow.
With au eye like its crystals, a heart like its
glow; \
Onci I was loved for my innocent pr.i.-c?
Flattered and sought for the cliarms o! my fa.ee!
Sister, all,
Ood and myself I have lost by my fnll;
The veriest wretch that goes sLimin_' by,
Will nuke a wide sweep, lejt I wander too nigh;
For all that on or above me I know,.
There is nothing that's pure as the beautiful
snow. *
How strange it should be that this beautiful
JShoula fill ??r. a sinner with nowhere to go !
How strange it should be when the night comes
If the snow and the ice struck,my desperate
brain ;
Dying alone,
Too wicked for prayer, too weak for a mom
To be heard ;n thv streets of a oraxy town.
Gone mad in t he joy of the snow couiins
To be end to die in my terrible woe.
With a bed and a shroud of the beautiful
Fact and Fancy.

Visions of cxtactic rapture, thicker than '
the hair of a blacking brash and brighter
than the hues on a humming bird's pin-,
ions, visit me in my clnmbcrs; aud born
on their invisiblo'wings, your image stands ;
before me, and [ reach out to grasp it,
like an old ponitcr snapping at a blue
bottle fly. When I first beheld your.
angciic perfections I was bewildered and
my Ijraiu whirled around like a humble-.
bee in a glns3 tumbler. My eyes stood
open like cellar doors in country towns,
aud I lifted up my ears to catch the silvery
accents of your voice. My tongue refused
to wag, and in silent admiration I drank
in the sweet infection of love, as a thirsty
man swallowoth a tumbler of hot whiskey
punch. Sinco the light of your face fell
upon my life, I sometimes felt as if I could
lift myself by my hoot-straps to the top of
a church steeple. Day and night you are
ray thought. When Aurora, blushing
like a bride, rises from her saffron couch ;
when the jay bird pipes its tuneful lay in
the apple treo by the spring house when
the chantielcer's shrill clarion heralds the
coming morn ; when the awakened pig
ariseth from his bed aud grunteth and
goeth forth for his morning refreshments j
when the drowsy beetle wheels his droning
flight at sultry noan-tide, and when the
lowing cows come home at milking time,
I think of thee ; and like a piece of gutn
elastic, my heart seems tojstrctch clean
across my bosom. Your hair is like the
mane of.a sorrel horse powdered with gold,
and the brass pin skewered through your
waterfall filled me with unbounded awe.
Your fore-head is smoother than ,t'ue
elbow of an old coat, and whiter than
seventeen hundred linen. Your eyes are
glorious to behold. In their liquid depth
I see legions of little Cupids battling and
fighting like cohorts of ants in an old
army cracker. When their firo hit me
full on my manly 'breast, it permeated my
entire anatomy, like as a load of bird
shot would go through a rotten apple.?
Your nose is from a chunk of parian mar
ble, ana your mourn pucKcrca with sweet-;
ne=s. Nectar lingers on your lips like
honey on a bear's paws, and myriads of'
unfledged kisses are there ready to fly out
and light somewhere like voungblue birds
out of tbc parent rast. Your, laugh rings
on my ears like the wind-harp's strain, or
the bleat of a stray lamb on the bleak
hillside. The dimples on your cheeks are
like bowers in beds of roses, or likt hol
lows in cakes of houie-inade sugar.
1 am dying to fly to your presence and
pour out tbc buming.sloquence of my love,
as thrifty hoiiscwivcp pour out the hot
coffce. Away from you I am melancholy
as a pielt rat. Sometimes I can hear the
June-bugs of dcspoddency buzzing in my
cars, and feel the cold lizzards of despair
crawling down my back. Uncouth fears,
liko a thousand minnows, nibb!ing at niv

My lore for you is stronger than llin
