Glided a maiden, Just nineteen; The faint rose blush on her fair young face Set off a beauty but rarely seen; Brought to a poet who stood apart, She archly spoke of his "well-known name" They talked of verses, of books and art With a common passion, and words aflame. His hair was not yet touched with gray, And youth's first longing lit up his eyes: He had waited for years for this sweet array Of matchless beauty-and sharp surprise. The jostling groups went round and round. And charming women and men passed through Among the tableaux not one was found That mated so well as this fated two. r THE DAY AFTER THE PARTY. WHAT SHE THOUGHT. "He seemed to like me-that is sure But then. he had to be polite; The young men there I could not endure I wish I could see him again to-night; But he lives with books, and on lofty fare, What could he care for a girl like me?
