Upon our tidy hearth—
We may be happy here to-night,
And joiu in songs of mirth.

We have together spent,
When to my grief, your gentle voice,
A charm of music lent.

He heeds not the fond appeal.

rar FIRST LOVE.
I met her in the rmzy dance—
That charming witch, the village belle,
My heart flew off in her magic glance.
My eyes were fixed by a ‘ secret spell.’
Her hair in glossy ringlets hung,
And roses bloomed upon her cheek.
And pretty teeth played with her tongue,
Wheue’r that member moved to speak.
The brightest star that throng among,
She moved the Goddess of the waltz ;
While many a fair, with envy stung.
Pronounced her giddy, vatu and false.
I sought her home with lover’s speed,
And breathed my passion in her ear—
She blushed, and drooped—she did indeed,
Bat spoke the word 1 wished to hear.
My trembling arm enclosed her zone,
My timid lips essayed a kiss ;
And when her’s gentlv met my own.
Oh, what a thrill of heavenly bliss!
—"But to ! the scene that met my eyes —
The devastation on that face—
How sadly had those roseate dyeS
Grown pale beneath my rude embrace.
The damsel in this sorry p’ight,
Fell in swoon, and feigned to faint,
While I stood there—a ghastlv sight—
Besmeared from eyes to chin with paint!
Her-silken curls ennght in my coat,
And left her head part grey, aud bare ;
She gasped but or.ee—her teeih fell out
And raiugled with her fallen hair.
I seized my hat—sprang to the door.
Rush’d down the yard and leaptlhe fence.
’ 1 uever saw the beauty more—
r> And havn't kissed a woman since !
>* THINK OF IC.
ve Farewell!— and never think of me
C* In lighted hall or lady’s bower;
Farewell !—and never think of me •
In spring sunshine or summer hour!
But when you see a lonely grave.
: Just ivhere a broken “heart might bej
With not one mourner by its sod.
Then—and theu only— think or me !

in the church arose and relieved her
