ORTHOMETRY.
Protested that he had not slept, But only shut his eyes, and kept His ears attentive to each word.
Longfellow.
" Good Night."
God be with thee, my beloved. God be with thee!
Else alone thou goest forth,
Thy face unto the north. Moor and pleasance, all around thee and beneath thee,
Looking equal in one snow I
While I, who try to reach thee,
Vainly follow, vainly follow,
With the farewell and the hollo,
And cannot reach thee so.
Alas ! I can but teach thee, God be with thee, my beloved. God be with thee !
Mrs. Brow7iing. " A Valediction."
{ft). Stanzas of Twelve Verses.
You'll come to our ball; since we parted,
I've thought of you more than I'll say; Indeed, I was half broken-hearted
For a week, when they took you away. Fond fancy brought back to my slumbers
Our walks on the Ness and the Den, And echoed the musical numbers
Which you used to sing to me then. I know the romance, since it's over,
'Twere idle, or worse to recall; I know you're a terrible rover,
But, Clarence, you'll come to our ball ?
Praed.
O what a plague is love'
I cannot bear it; She will inconstant prove,
I greatly fear it.
