ORTHOMETRY.
NOTHING SO SWEET.
Nothing so sweet in all the world there is
Than this—to stand apart in Love's retreat And gaze at Love. There is as that, ywis, Nothing so sweet.
Yet surely God hath placed before our feet Some sweeter sweetness and completer bliss,
And something that shall prove more truly meet.
Soothly I know not:—when the live lips kiss
There is no more that our prayers shall entreat, Save only Death. Perhaps there is as this Nothing so sweet.
Charles Sayle.
A RON DELAY.
Man is for woman made,
And woman made for man : As the spur is for the jade, As the scabbard for the blade,
As for liquor is the can, So man's for woman made,
And woman made for man.
As the sceptre to be sway'd, As to night the serenade,
As for pudding is the pan,
As to cool us is the fan, So man's for woman made,
And woman made for man.
Be she widow, wife, or maid,
Be she wanton, be she staid,
Be she well or ill arrayed,                                  
So man's for woman made, And woman made for man.
