Poetry by Jessica Raskin.
Composed by M. W. Balfb.
Price 2s.
Oh! take mo to thy heart again t
I never more will grieve thee :,
All joys are fled and hopo is dcai

If I indeed must leave thee.
Forgive the wild and angry words

This wayward heart hath spoken;
I did not dream those cherished chords
So lightly could be broken.

Oh 1 take me to thy heart again.
I think how very sad and lono

This life would be without thee;
For all the joys my heart hath known

Aro closely twined around thee.
Oh ! toach me to tutbduo the pride

Thnt wounded thee so blindly;
And be once more the gentle guido
Who smiled on mo so kindly.

Then take me to thy heart again.

Rouse ye PalikarL
Men of Suliote, rouse yo,
See on yonder mountain's brow,

Glows the beacon light I
Warlike songs are singing,—
While the trumpets xiugiug
Call The valiant Falikan,
To the coming Fight.

What though f<>cs surround us,
Though their chains have bound us.
We will live as freemen live.
Or die as warriors die.
Como with weapons gleaming—
Come with banners streaming,
Raise your glorious battlo cry,
Suliote shall be free.


Poetry By Ellis Bell,
Composed By £. Acuilar,

Thero should be no despair for you,

While nightly stars are burning; Wliilo evening pours its silent dew,

And sunshine gilds the morning. There should be no dospair, though tears

May flow down like a river i Aro not tho best-beloved of years

Around your heart for ever.

They weep, you weep, it must be so;

Winds sign, as you are sighing. Ami winter sheds its grief in snow,

Wh«re autumn's leaves aro lying.

Yet, these revive, and from their fate,

Your fate cannot be parted; Then, journey on, it not elati?,

Still, never broken hearted.


Poetry by the Rev. D. T. K. Dromxond.

Composed by Maurice Cobitah.

Price 2s. 6d.

Awake, little pilgrim, the day is at hand,
The rays ot the morning appear on the land;
O, haste with thy burden to life's Borrow gate.
Ere the night, shadows falling proclaim thee too late

Knock, little pilgrim, it shall not Ins vain,
Thy f cubic entreaties admittance shall gain;
Thy Saviour is watting to bid thoe God speed.
He turns none nway irom bis door iu their need.


Poetry by Isabella Hampton.

Composed by Q. A. Osborne. Price 2s. 6d.
A dew-drop reclined on a beautiful row,

Aud whispered soft vows of his love.
When near that sweet flower, to seek soft Tcposc,

A sunbeam felt down from above!

The dew-drop instinctively felt then hod como

A rival—his loved one to prove,
A shelter he sought next the heart of tho roso,

And whispered soft vows of hia love.
Still nearer came that sunbeam gay,

As bo called the rose his bride,
Those words the dew-drop beard him say,

Then drooped his hi ad and died.


Poetry by M. A. Stodart.
Composed by Lovell Phillips. Price 2s. Cd.
N The Christmas Roscl Tho Christmas Rose I
'Mid wintry frost and snow it blows;
And opes its portals pure and fair,
When winds have swept tho gay parterre.
Just like a true and constant friend,
Whose faith no storms of life can bend;
Not the mere friend of summer day.
But firm when joy hath passed away.

This flower is like the joys that whine,

In sorrow's hour aud life's decline,

When youth hath passed and pleasuro flown,

And sad the apiiit sigh* alone;

Then marvel not that thus I twine

My thoughts around this gift of thine.

And muse on hopes and joys that last,

And bloom through lifu'd most piercing blast."


Poetry by Jessica Rankin.
Composed by M. W. Balfe. Price 2s.
Prithee tell mo, gentle air.
Why my heart is full of care,

And why no pleasures charm me?
It is not Love torments me Bo:
I scorn tho wily urchin's bow,
His arrows cannot harni me I

I try to sing—my voice Is sad!
I sleep 1 tmt theu 'tis just as bad—

Such gloomy things 1 dream on t
Can jfon not tell T nor you/ nor yo* t
Oh ttien I know not what to do

To charm away tho demon.

I sometimes think, if '* / know Kko"
Wero here, ht'd tell me what to do,

To bid the demon slumber 1
Could I but hear his voice again,
I'm tare 'twould cheer my heart—but then

MI'm not in lovo, remember ("

I'm not in love, remember.


Poetry from the Polish.
Composed by A. Reich Audi. Price 2s. 6d.

Arc thev meant but to deceive me,

Those fond words that tell of love;
Ah I ibr ever it would grieve me

If their falsehood I should prove.
Though my heart would trust them gladly,

Though belief, alone, is bliss,
Yet I still must ponder sadly,

Ah! what bitter pain is this.

All my inmost soul concealing,,

Shall!sternly answer "No?"
Or each secret wish revealing

Shall my words unfettered flow.
Ever lingering, never speaking;

Hero my thoughts shall I express
Pur my bean if you are seeking,
Strive to And it by a guess.





Sung By Sims Reeves.
When I was in my toens,

I loved dear Margaretta,
I know noi what it means,

I cannot now forget her.
That vision of the past,

My head is ever crazing,
Tet when I saw her last

1 could not speak for gazing.
Queen ot rural maids,

My dark-oyed Margaretta,
The heart the mind upbraids

That struggles to forget her.

My love I know will seem

A wayward boyish folly;
But, ah ! it was a dream,

Most sweet, most melancholy.
Were mine the world's domain,

To me 'twere fortune better,
To be a boy again.

And dream of Margaretta.
. Oh! mcm'ry of the past.

Why linger to regret her?
My first love was my last, ,J

And that is Margaretta,



It was fifty years ago

In tho pleasant month of May,
In the beautiful Fays de Vaud,

A child in its cradle lay.
And Nature, the old nurse.

Took the child upon her knee,
Saying. '* Hero is a story-book

Thy Father has written for thee."
"Come, wander with me," she anid,

*' Into regions yet unt rod;
And read what is still unread

In the manuscripts of God."

And he wander'd away and away

With Nature, the dear old nurse,
Who sang to him night and day

The rhymes of the universe.
And whenever the way aecm'd long,

Or his hcitrt begau to fitil,
She would sing a more wonderful song,

Or tell a more marv'lous tale.

So she keeps him still a child,

And will not let him go,
Though at times his heart beats wild

For the beautiful Pays de Vaud;
Though at times he hears in his dreams

The Raudezvaches of old;
And the rush of mountain streams

From glaciers clear and cold.
And tho Mother at homo says, "Hark 1

For his voice I listen and yearn
It is growing late and dark,

Ana my boy docs not return."

Stjng By Miss Louisa Vinsikg.

In truth, I think he loves me,

For I have often seen
The blush mount to his temple,

When wc alono have been;
His voice, too, often trembles,

As sweet the words do flow;
But if ho really loves me,

Why don't he tell me so?

Why don't, Ac,

Methlnks he is too bashful.

Or, p*mpshc'3 half afraid
I might scorn to hear the words,

Ho hath ho long delayed!
Thoy tell mo "that he lovos me,"

My friends all seem to know;
But if it Is the truth they spo ik,

Why don't ho toll me sot

Why don't, A:c.

Tbcro is a little bird that sir„
"Sweetheart! sweetheart! sweetheart 1"

I know not what his name may be;

I only know he ploaseH me,

As loud ho sings—and thus sings he—
"Sweetheart! sweetheart I Sweetheart!'*

I've heard him sing, on soft Spring days—
*'Sweetheart I sweetheart! sweetheart!"
And wbon the sky was dark above.
And wintry winds hod stripp'd the grove,
He still poured forth those words ol love—
'Sweetheart! sweetheart! sweetheart!''

And like that bird, my heart, too, sings—
"SweetheartI sweetheart 1 sweetheart!'*

When heav'n Is dark, or bright and blue,

When trees are bare, or leaves are new.

It thus sings on, and sings of you—
"Sweetheart! sweetheartt sweetheart!"

What need of other words than these—
"Sweetheart! sweetheart! sweetheart!"

If I should sing a whole year long.

My love would not be shown more strong,

Than by this short and simple aong—

"Swoetheart! sweetheart! sweetheart!"



You're wasting time, most precious time,

In dangling daily here, Sir,
Qoseek elsewhere your lady fair,

And learn to bo siucere, Sir.
The damsel pert with whom you flirt.

Will suit you best, I see. Sir,
So keep away I hnmbly pray.

And don't come teasing me. Sir.

So keep away, *fec

I've growl) quite tirM of being ndmir'd.

By fickle swains like you. Sir;
For all you say to mo to-day.

Is neitbor new, nor true, Sir.
Your oft-told tale is old and stale.

Your actions don't agree, Mr,
In short, you find I've changed my mind.

So don't come teasing mo. Sir.

So keep away, &c.

The heart in thrall li captive all,

And can't divide allegiance;
It yields to one who shares with none,

It's full and prompt obedleuce,!
True love deals fair, nor seeks to shore

A heart that is not free. Sir,
Wins all or none, as 1 have done.

So don't come teasing roe, Sir.

So keep away, Ac.


St/kg By Mb. Lookey.

The maid I love hath many a grace;
How fair her form, how sweet her nice!

And con'st thou tell me, Mariner,

Fast sailing o'er the sea,
If ship, or sail, or eveniug star,

Were half so fair to theo!

The maid I lore, £c.
And cau'et thou tell me. Cavalier,

Whose arms are gleaming bright.
If steed or arms be half so dear

As hor fond eyes of light?

The maid I lovo, &c.

Or can'st thou toll me. Shepherd Boy,

Watching thy flock with care,
If herds, or sunlit valleys green,

Or skies be half so fair?

If herds, <fcc.
