.flDiscellaiteous. A Message of the Hotter Life. O, Roses, blooming royally, you bring me, in your splendor, A message of the Summer time— an idyl of the dew ; A glimpse of nil thing3 beautiful — a hint of ? all things tender, A dream of all things wonderful, all fair and sweet nnd true. And as your petals velvety are, one by one, unfolding, So is a marvel wrought before our wonder widened eyes j For silently you demonstrate the beauty earth is holding, Forcosting thus the glories in the realms of PaT.idise. A messnge, too, is folded down within tho Lily's chalice— A message to tho earnest heart of peace, and joy, and lovo ; A charge to rise above the world, its envy, war, and malice, As the Lily grows away from earth toward the skies above. Within the shadowed river dell, across tho misty meadows, We catch the gleam of Milkweed bloom, tho burning Card'nal blaze ; So, Nature lights her torches bright, within the somber shadows ; So shineB undimmed some spark of* faith in life's becl...

We first rode out together, Alone by the murmuring Wandong creek, In the beautiful bright spring weather When tho grass was green, and the bnlmy air Was heavy with rich perfume Prom the pungant shoots of the peppermint scrub, And from the delicate wnttlo bloom, When beneath the shade of the giant gums That swung their limbs abovo, , He whispered in accents soft in my car His tender talc of love ? Can'st thou remember, can I forget, Each moment of that sweet lime, Tho rhythmical beat on tho turf of your feet, And tho jingling musical chime Of bridle nnd curb ns thou plnyfull.v bit At my palfrey's streaming mane : And we rode through the grand old bush ...
