To baby Katharine (singing) :—

Thou, vocal with no voice articulate,
But tuneful as the fabled fatry bell,
To make thy firmament in rhythmic swell
With throbs of otherwhere reverberate !
O lovely one! whose soul vs animate
With harmony that formeth by her spell
To murmur, like the murmuring of a shell,
Unspoken mysteries of the Infinite.
For from the orbs a mystic effiuence,
Comes echoing aéry through the vast immense,
And, palpitant of memories from the years,
Within the holtes’ holtest of the sense
May wake a spirit unto presctence,
As oft as Echo answering tnly stirs.















” The Norman William came to Hastings’ strand, —

d, Sovereign of the land.
‘the Curfew and the Domesday Book,
And for his hunting the New Forest took.

Of France King Francis cured the quarrel old
With Henry on the Field of Cloth of Gold.

The Cardinal Wolsey rose to highest place,

Immortal Sydney to a soldier gave

The King of Spain a great Armada sent,
But men and vessels to the bottom went;
_ And for the remnant that the tempest spared
Lord Howard and his sailors were prepared.
An age of wonders works of genius fired,
And Shakespeare glowed upon a stage inspired.
In vain did Leicester's Earl at Amy's fate
Connive ; the Queen maintained her virgin state.

Without the Parliament imposed the tax ;

And, failing in a second Civil War,

The second James, to help the Papist cause,

In their behalf dispensed with penal laws,

At Sedgmoor, vanquished, he was prisoner ta’en.
The King Indulgence of Dissent declared,

And Bishops tried who opposition dared.

The Prince of Orange landed in Torbay,

And James was forced to take himself away.

GEORGE III

’Gainst George the Third the States United fought,
And gained the Independence which they sought.
In France the King upon the scaffold bled,

And then the Queen, and then the land was red.
Against Napoleon Pitt upheld the strife;

Brave Nelson won Trafalgar with his life:

And Wellington the Frenchman's power assailed
And afterwards at Waterloo prevailed.

VICTORIA.

Victoria next, his niece, ascends the throne:

The Prince, her Consort, for ‘‘ The Good ’’ beknown.

When Peel repealed the tax upon the corn

He suffered under Ben Disraeli’s scorn.

To France Napoleon came, Hortense’s son.

Our Exhibition joined the world in one,

But soon against the Czar the war began—

At Alma, Balaklava, Inkermann.

In Crimea fell the suffering and the slain ;

Till at the last Sevastopol was ta’en.

The Indian Delhi saw the Sepoys rise,

And Cawnpore heard the murdered mothers’ cries.

In Lucknow women won enduring fame,

And Havelock and Colin Campbell came.

Secession Union of the States assailed,

But Freedom's battle in the end prevailed.

Again the Russian on the Bosphorus moved,

But stayed when India England's power approved.
- For India’s Kaisar, England's Queen, can sway

An Empire equal to the rising day ;

And children’s children’s children own the love

Of Her who holds the Sceptre with the Dove.

The second James, to help the Papist cause,

In their behalf dispensed with penal laws,
Rebellion’s standard Monmouth raised in vain :
At Sedgmoor, vanquished, he was prisoner ta’en.
The King Indulgence of Dissent declared,

And Bishops tried who opposition dared.

The Prince of Orange landed in Torbay,

And James was forced to take himself away.

GEORGE III

’Gainst George the Third the States United fought,
And gained the Independence which they sought.
In France the King upon the scaffold bled,

And then the Queen, and then the land was red.
Against Napoleon Pitt upheld the strife;

Brave Nelson won Trafalgar with his life:

And Wellington the Frenchman's power assailed
And afterwards at Waterloo prevailed.

VICTORIA.

Victoria next, his niece, ascends the throne:

The Prince, her Consort, for ‘‘ The Good ’’ beknown.

When Peel repealed the tax upon the corn

He suffered under Ben Disraeli’s scorn.

To France Napoleon came, Hortense’s son.

Our Exhibition joined the world in one,

But soon against the Czar the war began—

At Alma, Balaklava, Inkermann.

In Crimea fell the suffering and the slain ;

Till at the last Sevastopol was ta’en.

The Indian Delhi saw the Sepoys rise,

And Cawnpore heard the murdered mothers’ cries.

In Lucknow women won enduring fame,

And Havelock and Colin Campbell came.

Secession Union of the States assailed,

But Freedom's battle in the end prevailed.

Again the Russian on the Bosphorus moved,

But stayed when India England's power approved.
- For India’s Kaisar, England's Queen, can sway

An Empire equal to the rising day ;

And children’s children’s children own the love

Of Her who holds the Sceptre with the Dove.
