MEANING OF THE LOOK. 151 THE MEANING OF THE LOOK. “ And the Lord turned and looked upon Peter." I think that look of Christ might seem to
say“Thou Peter! art thou then a common stone Which I at last must break my heart upon, For all God's charge, to his high angels,
may Guard' my foot better? Did I yesterday Wash thy feet my beloved, that they should
run Quick to deny me'neath the morning sun ?And do thy kisses, like the rest, betray ?The cock crows coldly.-Go, and manifest A late contrition, but no bootless fear! For when thy deathly need is bitterest, Thou shalt not be denied, as I am hereMy voice, to God and angels, shall attest,Because I know this man, let him be clear."
E. B. Barrett.

A simple toil, by pleasure overpaid
I have stray'd, Rejoicing in their loveliness :—and now I send thee forth-a many-hued bo

fond lay :“Come to the old haunts, where our kindred
dwell: We were but lowly ones in that bright
train, Yet the soft breeze played o’er us, as o'er
them; With theirs, our petals drank the gentle
rain ; And therefore are we lovely ;-for the air Of that sweet region breathes of Love
and Peace, Truth, Purity, and Beauty :- list our song Come with us, love us, live with us and
