CHRISTIAN LOVE.

Whilom Love was like a fire, and warmth and

comfort it bespoke ; But, alas ! it now is quenched, and only bites us,

like the smoke.

ART AND TACT.

Intelligence and courtesy not always are com

bined; Often in a wooden house a golden room we

find.

RETRIBUTION.

Though the mills of God grind slowly, yet they

grind exceeding small; Though with patience he stands waiting, with ex

actness grinds he all.

TRUTH.

When by night the frogs are croaking, kindle but

a torch's fire, Ha ! how soon they all are silent! Thus Truth

silences the liar.

RHYMES.

If perhaps these rhymes of mine sound not well

in strangers' ears, They have only to bethink them that it happens

so with theirs ; For so long as words, like mortals, call a father

land their own, They will be most highly valued where they are

best and longest known.
