6 HIE CItY OF THE DREAMER. I m » AM tired of planning and toiling IAM the crowded hives men; ln the crowded hives ol men; H Heart weary of building and spoiling, JD-i And spoiling and building again; And 1 long 'or the dear old river. Where 1 dreamed my youth away— For a dreamer lives forever. And a toiler dies In a day. I am sick of the showy seeming Of a life that Is hair a lie: Of the faces lined with scheming In the throng that hurries by. From the sleepless thoughts' endeavor, 1 would go where the children play; For a dreamer live- forever. And a thinker dies in a day. I can feel no pride, but pity For the burdens the rich endure ; There Is nothing sweet lv the city Hut the patient lives of the poor. Oh. the little bauds too skillful. And the Child-mind choked with weeds! The daughter's heart grown willful, And the lather's heart that bleeds 1 No, no! From the street's rude bustle, From trophies of mart and stage, 1 would fly to tin- woods' low rustle Ami the meadows* kindly pa...
