Down in a green, and shady bed,

A modest violet grew;
Its stalk was bent, it hung its head,

As it to hide from view.
And yet it was a lovely flow'r,

Its colours bright and fair :
It might have grac'd a rosy bow'r,

Instead of hiding there.
Yet there it was content to bloom,

In modest tints array'd;
And there it spread its sweet perfume,

Within the silent shade.
Then let me to the valley go,

This pretty flow'r to see ;
That I may also learn to grow,

In sweet humility.

My father and mother are dead,

No friend or relation I have;
And now the cold earth is their bed;

And daisies grow over their grave, I cast my eyes into the tomb;

The sight made me bitterly cry: I said, and is this the dark room,

Where my father and mother must lie ? I cast my eyes round me again,

In hopes some protector to see ; Alas! but the search was in vain,

For none had compassion on me I cast my eyes up to the sky,

I groan'd, though I said not a word; Yet God was not deaf to my cry;

The friend of the fatherless heards O yes, and he graciously smild,

Ånd bid me on him to depend; He whisper'd-fear not, little child, For I am thy father and friend.

DEAT" OF AN INFANT. How solemn did the monient seem,

When from its tender parents love,
Death's chilly hand, to worlds unseen,

A lovely infant, did remove.
One hour what beauty deck'd its face !

What blending smiles with white and red ! A moment, and its lovely grace,

And all its active powers are fted. Who could behold with tearless eye,

And witness such a heartfelt scene, Born just to weep, and smile, and die,

Nor understand what pleasures mean

No more its infant wants made known; Its spirit has return’d to God;

Its dust lies silent in the tomb. Though silent, yet, it seems to say,

In unheard words of deep reply: Though longer on the earth you stay,

Parents, and friends, you too must die. Obedient to his high command

Who formed me first, and gave me breath; I early haste, and meekly bend, To taste the bitter

cup of death. Mourn not; nor longer grieve to see,

One who enjoyed your fondest care ; Only expect to follow me,

And for the dreadful change prepare.

See the leaves, around us falling,

Dry and wither'd to the ground ;
Thus to thoughtless mortals calling,

With a sad and solemn sound.
Youth, though yet no losses grieve you,

Gay in health and manly grace,
Let not cloudless skies deceive

Summer gives to autumn place.
Yearly in our course recurring,

Messengers of shortest stay,
Thus we preach this truth unerring,

Heaven and earth shall pass away.
On the tree of life eternal,

Man, let all thy hopes be staid ;
Which alone, forever vernal,

Bears a leaf that ne'er shall fade.

pen i ten tial GEORGE AND HIS MOTHER. Ma, George, you have done extremely ill

In staying from your school to day; And what is still much worse, I hear,

You've been with naughty boys to play. Geo. Well I don't like to go ; mamma ;

Tom Willis never goes to school, And always when he sees me go,

He says I am a little fool. [Brown, Ma. George, have you seen poor Philip

The beggar man with wooden legs
Who hobbles on two crutches round,

And stops at every door and begs ?
Geo. O yes, mamma, I know him well,

And shocking 'tis indeed to see,
A human being on the earth,

In such distress and poverty.
Ma. Poor man, I also knew him well,

When he was young and gay like you ; He was his father's dearest hope,

And a fond mother's darling too.
