A DREAM.

A DREAM. "For a dream cometh through the multitude of busities s. —ECCLCSIASTES. The rain is rattling on the pane, the wind is sweeping by, Now with discordant shriek, anon with melancholy cry. The other elerks have gone a>ray, their daily labour o'er' And here I write and calculate until my eyes are sore| The figures fade, the room grows dim and somehow dis- appears, And in its stead old scenes come back across the "waste of years And set in fr,Lme of golden hair, a fair young face I see, Whose two soft eyes of deepest blue look wistfully on me. Once, on a memorable eve, when heart and hope were young, Those liMninous eyes upon my life a sudden glory flung. As she was then I see her now, my first, my only choice, The brightness on her sunny brow, the music in her voice. One question, and but one I ask, then for an answer wait: My very heart is motionless, expectant of its fate. A wondrous light-the light of Love—glows in the teaùer eyes, llsr breath is warm upon my face-O sweetest of re- plies! But, bless inv heart the driving rain is coming in, I fear, Or is that shining little drop upon the page a tear ? Well, who would think an old grey head could be so soft as ;his, When mor. than thirty years have fled since that fond, fo- ish kiss And still ti e rain beats on the pane, still wearily wails th wind, And still t re grinding cares of life press on the jaded mjld; yet when Scial cares are thick, when they should reign su; reme, A dream w d oft unbidden come that is not all a dream.
