Cod bless thee, wanderer, oil thy way.
A. W. H
Young Poet, in my thoughtful heart,
IV hen memory’s eyes were cast
In retrospective dream mgs o’er
The windings of the Past;
Hod blest? thee, wanderer, on thy way,
Hath oft been breathed lor thee,
Pown in the cloister of my soul,
All pure and fervently.
Though thou hast “often near me been,”
1 know not if mine eye,
Hath e’er met thine, or rested on
Thy brow, in “hours gone by ;”
I would, for him, who “hath repressed
His joy, to see me sad,”
The Future’s sky bo clear and calm,
Its pathway smooth and glad.
With not a thorn to pierce thy foot,
Or sigh to cloud thy breast,
Save blessings in disguise, that woo
To an eternal rest ;
I would, as down the vista dim,
Of future years you stray,
Thy trusting heart may ever tind
An Angel in the way.
With snowy wings above thy head,
In sheltering love uufurled,
To lead thee safely down life’s slope,
Uuto a shadeless world.
Thou'lt ne’er, perchance, behold again,
Her bruw who pens this lay,
’Till, like the fading summer dowers,
We both have passed away.
Hut there’s a glorious summer realm,
Where Autumn's plaintive tone,
And golden touch of soft decay,
And Winter, are unknown ;
Remember through all future hours,
In happiness or care,
“It is not all of life to live,”
And, Arthur, meet me there!

From the Knickerln>ekcr for September,
Melting 1 heard, yet till the nun's decline,
Prolonged the least, and quaffed the rosy wine.
Odytsey; Jiook X,
I hate a ’Skeeter as I do the devil:
It is a very flying fly of evil.
You’re dunned forever by its bill of fare,
And fairly over done or done too rare.
It keeps on buzzing with its bu*y wing®;
It keeps on coming, coining while ite §iogs;
It keeps on singing, singing—now it stings!
See how the critter quaffs the “rosy wine,"
The rich, rod vintage—vours, my friend, and
mine.
“Is this, Ulysses! our inglorious lot?"
A “running stream ” for skeeter bites or not?
I»y the fair Circe, no! I’ll kill the sot,
And knock the vampyre, vanquished, “into
pot!"
'Tie done! With one fell blow I struck her,
And there she lies—a used up “sucker!"

Just let 'em try their hand, and keepon trying.

To spur you on, and test your gentle blood;
And every now and then, to quaff their fill,
They’ll bore you with their pretty little drill.
