BALLAD OF THE TEMPEST.
JAMES T. FIELDS.
Wc were crowded in the cabin.
Not a soul would dare to sleep;
It was midnight on the waters.
And a storm was on the deep.
Tis a fearful thing in winter
To be shattered in the blast.
And to hear the rattling trumpet
Thunder, "Cut away themast!'!
So we shuddered there in silence
For the stoutest held hie breath.
While the hungry sea was roaring.
And tho breakers talked with Death.
As thus we sat in darkness.
Each one busy la his prayers
Wearelost!" the captain shouted.
As ho staggered down the stairs.
But his little daughter whispered.
As she took his icy hand,
a Isn't God upon the ocean,
Just the same as on the land?"
Then we kissed the little maiden.
And we 6poke in better cheer,
And we anchored safe In harbor
When the mom was shining clear.

" Ere the twilight bat was flitting,
In the sunset at her knitting
Sang a lonely maiden, sitting
Underneath her threshold tree;
And ere daylight died before us.
And the resperstars shone o'er us.

Jamie from the stormy sea;
And while yet her lips did name me.
