•'r AN OLD LETTER. ^To-day I found letter dim with age, Vet breathing hope and trust in every line, And bearing- on its blurred and yellow page A token of thy faith, O friend of mine! Strong in its deathless love each tender word Stirred my heart-depths with a mysteri ous spell, Vague as the first sweet notes of spring time, heard In some secluded del! And then I walked in dreams, O friend of mine. Across the grave of long-forgotten years— Once more my longing eyes looked into thine, Dimmed with the mist of sad. regretful tears Tiien swift from happy summer fields were blown The mjstic songs that love and sorrow knew. The while thy soft warm Angers clasped my own In welcome fond and tiue. saw the crimson light of morning shine Across the valley and the lonesome plain. AM thus at last we stood. O friend of mine. Then suddenly the world grew dark again, -F"or old mad dreams by fevered longings wrought Swept their strange shadows o'er =the dawning day. And the white meadowlands of peac...

And my lire steeds out of the west, Come bearing the spoil of a million's toil And the fruits of a world-wide quest.
