With the strictest reverence—
(Just her grandma over!)
IS the truest, and bluest eyes,
Back of suuny lashes,
While the earnest answer comes:
“Made of dust and ashes.” _
“What are you made of, Johnny, boy ?”
Boy stands still a minute;
If there’s any mischief round,
He’s the one that’s in it.
“I ain’t dirt 1” His brown eyes gleam,
And he archly reaches
Toward the basket’s winy hoard :
“Guess lam cream and peaches.”
“What are you made of, Taddie pet ?”
Taddle’s eyes are glowing;
Two white hands put back the curls,
Two white teeth are showing ;
And the smiles, they twinkle round
Like a band of blisses,
“Cause they takes ’em all the times,
'Sped I’m made of kisses.”

a daring buttress to support a further
flight, as though one vaulting tower had
leaped upon another’s shoulders! There
are Santa Croee, with its beautiful daz

the dome of the Medicean Chapel of San
