From tlio Yquth'a Keepsake. THE CHILD'S WISH IN SUMMER. , Mother, Mother, the winds are at play, Prithee, let mo be idle to-day. Look, dear mother, tho (lowers all lie Languidly under the bright blue sky. See, how slowly tho streamlet glides j Look, how the violet roguishly hides Even the butterfly rests on the rose, And scarcely sips the sweets as he goes. Poor Tray is asleep in the noontide sun, And tho flics gonbout him one by one ; And pussy sits near with a sleepy grace, Without ever thinking of washing her face. There flies a bird to a neighboring lice, But very lazily flicth he, And he sits and twitters a gentle note, That scarcely ruffles his little throat. You bid me busy but, mother, hear How the hum-drum grasshopper soundeth near, And the soft west wind is so light in its play It scarcely moves a leaf on the spray. I wish, Oh I wish, I was yonder cloud, That sails about with its misty shroud ; 13ooks and work I no more should see, And I'd come and float, dear mother, o'er...
