Come, Little One.
Come to the clasp of my arms, lit tle one, Come with your tenderest cling ing; Come as the West greets the crim soning sun, Come with your laughter and singing. Come with your rarest of kisses to greet me; Come with your sweetest of wel comes to meet me; Come, and I'll tell you the tales you entreat me, Come, while the night-bird is winging! Come to the clasp of my arms, lit tle girl. Come with your smiles so en trancing; Come with the gold of the sun in each curl, Here where the shadows aiv dancing. Come with the pressure of pink lit tle hands; Come with your wee, babbling bab j commands; Come, and we'll journey to mysti cal lands. Where wearied eyelids are glancing. Come to the clasp of my arms, tie lass, Come with your charms So dearing; Come, and to visionary, shores lit- en v ; will pass, Toward which the Dream Ship is steering. , Come with the love-light aglow in your eyes; , Lome, with vour wondering lonks ; of surprise; Come, while fhe setting sun purples the skies, ume tor the oieep Land we re nearing! A. A. Brininstool, in Los Angeles Express. ( Song of the Laggard. I'd like to have my share of fame. I'd like to be a leader here. ia like au men to know my name And greet me with a rousing cheer, I'd like to climb to topmost heights, Where mediocrity is barred; But that means working late at nights And that's too hard. I'd like to write a clever book, I've started once or twice to do it; When I should work, my ease I took, And so I've never struggled through it I could succeed without a doubt; But I've done noting, as I've said, It is so hard to work them out. I'm certain I could stand success And I could get it if men knew me: I. wonder why tney never guess My worth ana hand their prizes to me. I want to hold an honored place, I'm very sick of merely clerking; Most any station I would grace, If can get it without working. . ' Detroit Free Press. Nothing Amiss.
