THE SLEEPING BEAUTY.
LONG, long ago, in ancient times, there lived a King and Queen,
And for the blessing of a child their longing sore had been;
At last, a little daughter fair, to their great joy, was given,
And to the christening feast they made, they bade the Fairies seven-

The Fairies seven, who loved the land-that they the child might bless;
Yet one old Fairy they left out, in pure forgetfulness.
And at the feast, the dishes fair were of the reddest gold
Aut when the Fairy came, not one for her, so bad and old.
Angry wis she, because her place and dish had been forgot.
And angry thin,.gs she muttered long. and kept her anger hot,

An aged peasant told of an enchanted palace, where
A sleeping King and Court lay hid, and sleeping Princess fair,
Through the thick wood, that gave him way, and past-the thorns that drew
