The following lines were read by the author at th<^ *6 Pleasant i/vening*" on Monday erenmg Five and-twenty years ago, England's youthful heir went forth, To the regions of the North, Armed with Love's unerring bow Saw a maiden wondrous fair, Left his heart behind him there, Guarded by a lover's vow. Five-aud-twenty years ago, Came a Princess to this land Came to gain that lover's hand; Came her own heart to bestow. And, the suushine of her smiles, Thrilled with rapture all these Isles, As she stood in beauty's glow. Five-and-twenty years have gone, ileaven, their royal home has blast; From that genial peaceful rest, Love's sweet pledges have upgrown. Wife and mother prize we more Than when first she touched onr show— He, unrivalled, holds his own. Five-and-twenty years combined, .Bless the silver wedding dav • Now, the Poet in his lay, Brings a nation's heart, enshrined Full of praise and gratitude, For what's best in womanhood For what's noblest in mankind. Through a longer life again May their happy union last, With more lustre ih m the past Till the summit they uttain. May it ripen into gold, nd the future yet uniultl, Rieslings of a glorious reign. -p- ,R MOSTTN WILLIAMS. Ruyl, Marc.il 10th, 1888.
