" You are old, father William," the young man
cried, “ And life must be hast ning away; You are cheerful, and love to converse upon death:

The Traveller's Return.
THE TRAVELLER'S RETURN.
Sweet to the morning traveller
The sky-lark's earliest song,
The dewy light among.
And cheering to the traveller
The gales that round him play, When faint and wearily he drags"
Along his noontide way.
And when beneath th' unclouded sun
Full wearily toils he,
And when the evening light decays, . And all is calm around, There is fweet music to his ear
In the distant sheep-bell's sound.
:35 And (weet the neighbouring church's bell
That marks his journey's bourn; But sweeter is the voice of love That welcomes his return!
I CARE not, Fortune, what you me deny:
Day and Night.
DAY AND NIGHT.

The Tame Stag.
THE TAME STAG.
As a young stag the thicket pass’d,
The stag was brought before his wife: The tender lady begg’d his life. How sleek's the skin! how speci'd likę ermine! "Sure never creature was so charming!
