ODE TO MY GRAND-DAUGHTER. (By Andrew Kinross). Dear Jessie, kindred of my own, With fond poetic instinct sown, Who yet hath led a peaceful life, Devoid of care and free from strife. In thy fair home where thou wast born, And where thou spent life’s early morn, May’st thou still very happy he. From care and trouble ever free. May music lend a pleasant charm. Unto thy life upon a farm, In work by day, in friends at night May'st thou experience delig-bt. From parents’ home, if thou depart, May’st thou obtain a loving heart, Who will be very kind to thee, And may thou future happy be. I hope that we will often meet And still with kindly feelings greet ; And may’st thou always think of me, For I will still remember thee.
