THORNS AND ROSES.. [Newspaper Article] — Singleton Argus — 23 October 1880

THORNS AND ROSES.. Maydow. A SWEET little face, all dimples and smiles, And fair little fingers, clasping a rose; "Jamie, the thorns—they have pierced my hand!" And swiftly the. crystal torrent flows. Jamio, with eager and boyish graoo, Kaaaea the haud where the rod mark shows, Then carefully prunes all the thorna from tho stem, ? . Leaving, unaltered, the boautif ul rose. '.Look, little Mabel! the thorns are gone; Only the beautiful flowers,remain. Kias mo but once, thou kiea mo again, And think'no more of the scratch and pain;" : Softly eho kiesos his smiling face Say, oan you gueaa what tho future shows Only his hand, with a tender grace, ? ' l'ruuing, through lifo, all the thorns from her rose.
