Sunset on the Caribbean-A View Taken from the Foreground of the Home of THE CARIBBEAN.
The noises of the day have died; high, shrill,
Excited voices of the children, cries
Of parrakeets, and hum of planes are still.
The shadowed sea in somber sleep now lies
Which late did fret, and fume, and foam, and fill
The air with sounds monotonous. Low sighs
The rustling palm, and, from the distant hill,
The echoes of the sunset gun now rise.
The sun, low sinking in yon western sky,
Looks forth from clouds all touched and tinged with gold,-
His path, a carpet shimmering o'er the bay,
To meet the weary weathered rocks which lie-
Historians silent-waiting as of old
For sun, and wind, and wave of each new day.

he lived. During the fourteenth year of Dant6s'
imprisonment, the Abb6 had his third attack of

at that time used as a state prison by the French
government. As the story goes, Edmond Dantes,
a young man of about nineteen years, was unjustly
imprisoned there and forced to spend many years
of his life in a dark, dismal, dirty, and dank dun-

8 THE CARIBBEAN.
A rush of feet upon the steep stone stair,
A clank of muskets on the courtyard flags,
The winding of the warning horn afar,
The rumble of the drawbridge as it drops,
The creaking of the gates as they swing wide,
The loud triumphant shout that welcomes home
The lord, the king, the idol of this band.
I fling aside my tapestry and run
With feet that scarcely seem to touch the marble floor,
So eager that my lips shall be the first
To give glad greeting to my dearest lord.
His breeches caught with silver at the knee,
A scarlet sash encircling his hips,
I see him stand, surrounded by his men,
One hand upon the hilt of his great sword,
The other raised in greeting unto all.
He catches sight of me behind the men,
And, with a shout that echoes through the c
He thrusts aside the crowd that intervenes,
And stands and faces me with arms outstret
A breathless moment as I hesitate,
And then I rush into those sheltering arms.
And feel so tiny 'midst those great strong men;
I timidly shrink nearer, and he laughs
And lifts me to his shoulder, where I sit
And cling with one small arm about his neck.
I see all piled up high within the gates
Huge oaken chests with bands of copper bound,
And bales, and casks, and vats, and tubs, and sacks,
Fair bulging with their contents rich and rare.
I catch the words of cannon, battle, death,
A deep voice tells of storms upon'the sea,
Another speaks of raids, of close escapes,
Of silent marches through the tropic night,
Of bullion buried in a far-off cave,
Of unmarked graves, of faces that are gone;
And I wonder as I hear these words,
For I know naught of storms, or death, or graves.
My father holds me tight and passes on
Beneath the mighty arch into the hall,
Where wooden tables groan beneath their load
Of bread, and meat and wine-enough for all.

At the left

The floor of the shop
is littered with bits of leather and broken tacks.
The walls are covered with paper, yellow with

The cobbler sits near the door before a battered
table about three feet high, on which lie a sharp

Oh wondrous work of mighty men--
Real men of brawn and brain,
Who your deep jungle did not fear,
Nor fever, nor tropic rain.
Upon your bosom passes now
The commerce of all nations;
Where once the untamed Chagres raced,
Work men in close relations;
Where now majestic ships hold sway
On rippling waters' face,
There once roamed fierce wild animals
Who here found hiding place;
And now, like hoary monarchs
