THE 3* BIRTHDAY WEEK.

i N

So eday-Fair of Face.

I
Q little maid of many moodsT
The dimples in thy face
Flit in and out like tricksy elvess
With soft and sudden grace,

And when I search thy face, the smiles
And blushes come and go,
SLike little drifts of gold ana rosEj
Across the sunset snow,

Some day thy mirror, or thy friends,
Will tell thee thou art fair,
And fairy folk will fill thy head
With dreams as light as air,

Somer day-but, ah, believe then not
Who praise thy pretty face T
But trim the little lamp within
S That gives the outward grace, ,

J ;y.

Where fairies danced at night,

i The rhythm of the fairy-ring
Is felt where'er they go,

SThat runs like songs of birds,
S Qr like their flight in air, through all
Thynmerry ways and. words?

That may-alas, the dayT

i I
w ednesday- a Chfild of e.


S Blue sys--true eyes, but full of tears T
SSome shadow n'er thy tender years,
[ 2ike rain clouds on a morn in May,
S Shuts out the sunshine of the day,
i pBrhaps some dear, accustomed face
Has strangely faded from its place
I Qn earth, but leaning from the skies,
Has won thy wistful, di ea-:Iy eyess
But the clear shining after rain"
S Vill turn the gray to gsld again,
And love, grown rich w mith long delay,
Will comen in other guise some day,
SSome day--some day when ships conme
in,
And those who list at last shall win,
Then blue eys-true eyes, wet with
rain,
u ThE sun shall fill thy skies again,

THE BIRTHDAY. WEEK.



Thursday-Far to Go.


I know a little willful naid
Who swings her hammi ck in the shade,
And swinging, sings a roundelay
As wild as a bird's,
And all the -- rls
Arei over the hills and far awayT"

Soamitimes, among the sea-rocks gray,
She counts the passing sails all day,
And sings-or sighs, which can it be ?-
A little refrain
Again and again,
"My heart, my heart, is over the seaT"

How shallwe charm the restless mood?
Is there a drop of gypsy blood
In those blue veins ? Ah, we must wait,
Sor woe and weal
Are under a seal,
i rast folded in the book of fate, i

SE THE BIRTHDAY V WEEK.

I
Ftriday--Lovirg and Giving.


little loving giving maiden,
frEighted, weighted, overladen
VWith the love that finds in giving
All the joy and end of living T
When she has nn gift for blessing
"Only lovE T she sighs, caressingj
Ah, she knows not all her treasure T
Love is more than gifts can measure,
Ni I
Can it be that days are coming
When some princely beggar, roaming
i n a quest of love and daring, i
All her sweetness will he wearing
For a day to deck his armor ?
S [est some loveless love should charm I
her,
Angels, call her-love her-woo her T
1 Open Heaven's gates unto her T

Why is your work-song over,
Honey-bEE minE ?-I call,

The Lord of thy life is weaving
i A wonderful web for thEss
S His hands have wrought Ever besidE

* And the dull, brown threads that tried
I thee
