DAFFODIL AND VIOLET.

From flowers faded long ago The printed page has caught a staiu • And, dreaming in the firelight's glow, Old 6cenes come back to me again. The land breeze blew across the broom, Just as the white moon crescent set; You wore—the fairest in the room—- • This daffodil and violet! We left the whirling, joyous dance; Unheeded might the music play When wanton Cupid sent the chance For you and me to steal away. Ah, Youth is seldom over wise! And principles are wondrous weak When glad lights shine in great grey eyes And warmer glows a rose-dusk cheek!. The sky was pale with starry light; With beads of dew the lawn was wet; On your white breast you wore that night This daffodil and violet! « 5 O, new buds bloom as old ones die—- ■ Those tender griefs are gone, and yet Your sweet, faint colors breathe a sigh. Dear daffodil and violet! •"The Breaker," in the' Bulletin.
