R Zong of Cbangeless seasons.

1Rert pear's flower=golb's pet in the mine,
"inber the earth, to be coineb at neeb;
1Relt pear's corn's asleep in the seeb;
1Ret pear's grape's a bream in the vine,-
unb a bream, a bream, are these cbilbren of thine,

0 thou near to be

W~bo map know, ab, wbo map know
Ube armory where the ice-blabes are,
tbe mystical storehouse, near or far,
Of the crystal stars of the next pear's snow?

_et tbV tour fair cbilbren shall come anb shall go,
0 thou lear to be!

autumn, braining the last best sweet,
tWinter proub, with his glittering pri3e,
spring, with wouber in beavenIp epes,
summer, brooping in browse beat,-
bteir changeless chilbboob shall these repeat
in the pears to be!

fairy Wine-khins.

Ilben bushV grapes in clusters
tleigb bown the ropes of vine,
ithe bustV leather bottles,
plumpeb out with fair wine,
1 know the rogue who rains them,
Rt robber bolb anb small;
Ube last Drop in the wine-shin
Ibe likes the best of all.
Each russet sach be presses,
RnO stains with reb the tips
Of all his gppsn fingers,
Zlnb both his eager lips.

o 1eacb-Cheeks, when the fairies
3JB moonlight seel the vine,
Enb flnO a heap of empty sacls,
But not a brop of wine,
3ust fanc* bow tbeV'll grumble
Because you've spoileb the feast,
WRbile pou are sounbtl sleeping,
IRot caring in the least;
libs fast anb lasbes fallen,
tnb dreaming that it's true
tbat all the worlb's a great rounb grape,
full ripe, anb meant for Vou!

R solbier of the snows.

l1y2 brave boy loves the winter-time;
lbe loves the bright, wilb bays
Wlben the strong sun shines, anb the ict trees
Mitb a host of bayonets bla3e;
Zinb the silver bullets brop left anb riobt,
Rnb the wino goes charging past
~iftb the whirl of a tbousanO cuirassiers
Rlnb the sounb of a trumpet-blast!


from a veteran tree, all scarred ano orav,
tbe has wresteb a steely bougb;

1be has captured the enemy's colors gay,-
In his face be bears them now!
bhe bears them in his merry face,
Cbat's lite the bolO reO rose;
tnb benceforth be shall ever be
/11M Solbier of the snows!














R 1Rhbme of Cbanging Cbilbren.


hlbere are last pear's little folk,

Wlbom we love anb knew?

-1bair a trifle browner golb;

Epes not quite so blue.

Wlbere's that curve in 1Rose=1ReOb' cheek

tiseb to please me so?

Wbere, the curls that Zove~Loc~h bah

Wot so long ago?


aust as spring in Summer's lost,

Sure it is anb clear,

]Ever? cbitl is cbilbren tour

in a single pear!
