'The melancholy days have come, the saddest of the year," Of cleaning paint and scrubbing floors, and scour ing far and near; Heaped in the corners of the room, the ancient dirt lay quiet, And spiders wove their web secure from fear, and din and riot; But now the carpets all are up, and from the Etair-case top The mistress calls to man and maid to wield the broom and mop. Where are those rooms, those quiet rooms, the house but now presented, Wherein we dwelt, nor dreamed of dirt, so cozy and contented ? Alas! they are turned all upside down, that qui et suit of rooms, With slops and sud3, and soap and sand, and tubs, and pails and broom . Chairs, tables, stands are standing 'round at six es and seven--, While wife and housemaids fly about like mete ors in the heavens. The parlor and the chamber floor were cleaned a week ago, The carpets snook and windows washed, as all the neighbors know; But still the sanctum had escaped—the table piled with books, Pens, ink and pa...
