The Bird With a Broken Wing.
I walked through th woodland meadows,
Wliere the sweet thrushes sing,
And found, on a bed of mosses,
A bird ith a brokem wing.
J healed its wound, and each morning
It sang in its old sweet strain;
Hut the bird with a broken pinion,
Never soared so hih again.
J found a young life broken
By sin's seductive art,
And, touched with a Chiibt-like pity
I took it to my heart.
He lived with a noble purpose,
And struggled not in vain;
But the life that sin had stricken,
Never soared so high again.
But the bird with a broken pinion
Kept another from the snare,
And the life that mii hd stricken
Raised another from despair.
E-.ch loss has its compensation,
'Vhtre is healing from every pain,
li it the bird with a broken pinion.
Never soared so high again. -Ex.
