Sclcd IJocfrn. My l.oys. All the day long they raco about, ' And orazo mo with tho noiso Of laugh and song, and romp and shout Two merry littlo boys. , But when the night, with sable wing, • Broods o'er the land and sen, . They loiivo thoir plivv, forgot to sing, And climb upon my knee, With tired feet, to be undressed, And safely laid in bod ; Aud-scarcely is the pillow pressed By onch dear, sunny head, Ero sleep the sweetest blossiug brings Bostowod by heaven above. Liko as hor young, with soothing wmgs, Soft broods tho mother-dovo. Oh, eareloss ones ! Oh, sleepers swoet! _Dream on, while yet ys may, l^or time goes on with paces fleet, To bring, you manhood's day. And unto men, with every night Comes not from caro roloase ; And to yoti then no angel's might Can bring baclc childhood's poaoo. Then you'll bo tirod—but not with play, And I—not with your noise ; Still in my heart, just as to-day, You will remain " my boys."
