MUSIC
USIC the fiercest grief can charm,

and fate's severest rage disarm;
music can soften pain to ease,
and make despair and madness please:
our joys below it can improve,
and antedate the bliss above,

MUSIC, when soft voices die,

vibrates in the memory-
odours, when sweet violets sicken,
live within the sense they quicken.
Rose leaves, when the rose is dead,
are heap'd for the beloved's bed;
and so thy thoughts, when thou art gone,
love itself shall slumber on.

P. B. SHELLEY

GOD

,

OD that madest earth and heaven,

darkness and light!
who the day for toil hast given,

for rest the night!
may Thine Angel Guards defend us,
slumber sweet Thy mercy send us,
holy dreams and hopes attend us,

this livelong night!

A LAMENT FOR ISRAEL

you, even a lamentation, O house of Israel. The virgin of Israel is fallen; she shall no more rise: she is forsaken upon her land; there is none to raise

her up.

Wailing shall be in all the streets;
and they shall say in all the high-ways, Alas! alas !
and they shall call the husbandman to mourning,
and such as are skilful of lamentation to wailing.

SIMILE

I

SAW a falling leaf soon strew

the soil to which it owed its birth; I saw a bright star falling too,

but never reach the quiet earth.

Such is the lowly portion blest,

such is ambition's foiled endeavour; the falling leaf is soon at rest,

while stars that fall fall on for ever.

BUT;

JOYS AS WINGED DREAMS FLY FAST
UT, ah! what liveth long in happiness?

grief of a heavy nature steady lies,
and cannot be remov'd for weightiness;

but joy of lighter presence eas’ly flies,
and seldom comes, and soon away will go:
some secret power here all things orders so,
that for a sunshine day follows an age of woe.

MY

AN OLD MAN'S REFLECTIONS
Y eyes are dim with childish tears,

my heart is idly stirr’d,
for the same sound is in my ears

which in those days I heard.
Thus fares it still in our decay;

and yet the wiser mind
mourns less for what time takes away,
than what he leaves behind.

W. WORDSWORTH

AND

MAJOR BELLENDEN'S SONG
ND what though winter will pinch severe

through locks of grey and a cloak that's old, yet keep up thy heart, bold cavalier,

for a cup of sack shall fence the cold.
For time will rust the brightest blade,

and years will break the strongest bow;
was never wight so starkly made,
but time and years would overthrow.

SIR W. SCOTT

WHA

THAT is grandeur, what is power?

heavier toil, superior pain. what the bright reward we gain? the grateful memory of the good.
