THE SHELL.
I have sinuous shells of pearly hue
Within, and they that lustre have imbibed
In the sun's palace porch ; where, when unyoked
His chariot-wheel stands midway in the nave:
Shake one, and it awakes; then apply
Its polish'd lips to your attentive ear,
And it remembers its august abode
And murmurs as the Ocean murmurs there

WALTER SAVAGE LANDOR.

RUMOUR.

Rumour is a pipe
Blown by surmises, jealousies, conjectures;
And of so easy and so plain a stop,
That the blunt monster with uncounted heads,
The still-discordant wavering multitude,
Can play upon it.

SHAKSPERE.

---

LIGHT.
Through the soft ways of heaven, and air, and sea,
Which open all their ports to thee;
Like a clear river thou dost glide-

All the world's bravery that delights our eyes,
Is but the several liveries ;
Thou the rich dye on them bestowest ;
Thy nimble pencil paints the landscape as thou goest.

COWLEY,

ÇARE HATH ITS END.
To those who prattle of despair,
Some friend, methinks, might wisely say—
Each day, no question, has its care,
But also every care its day.
