Methinks that fashioned on the same
Suggestive thought, this book may claim

Some Readers' gratitude ;
With “ concentration” for its aim-

Giving words known to Truth and Fame
Stripped of all platitude.

And to suck Readers I bequeath
The buds I've gathered from the wreath

That garlands Wisdom's bower;
Praying that kind, approving eyes
Will play the part of summer skies,

And nurse them into flower.

ELIZA COOK.
