15. Then sweet the hour that brings release from labor

and from toil; We talk the battle over and share the battle's spoil.


16. Has there any old fellow got mixed with the boys ? If there has, take him out, without making a noise.

-HOLMES. 17. All the world I saw or knew

Seemed a complex Chinese toy
Fashioned for a barefoot boy.


18. Oh blithe newcomer! I have heard,

I hear thee and rejoice:
O cuckoo ! shall I call thee bird ?

Or but a wandering voice?


19. The holy silence is His voice!

I lie and listen, and rejoice.


20. Thou, child of joy,

Shout round me; let me hear thy shouts,
Thou happy shepherd boy!


21. A paradise of vaulted bowers,

Lit by downward gazing flowers.


22. Till like one in slumber bound,

Borne to ocean, I float down, around,
Into a sea profound of everlasting sound.


23. Let the loud trumpet sound,

Till the rocks all around
The shrill echoes rebound.

24. It shouted through the belfrey tower

“Awake, O bell! proclaim the hour.'

[ocr errors]


25. Nothing is lost in this world of ours;

Honey comes from the idle flowers.

26. Our clocks are the flowers; and they count the hours

Till we can mellow in sun and showers.

27. From winding glen, from upland brown,

They poured each hardy tenant down.


28. I have breathed on the South and the chestnut

flowers, By the thousands have burst from the forest bowers.

-HEMANS. 29. Cur hearts, our hopes are all with thee:

Our hearts, our hopes, our prayers, our tears,
Our faith triumphant o'er our fears,
Are all with thee, are all with thee. -LONGFELLOW.
