And if life comes with cross and care,

Unknown in years of yore,
I know thou'lt half the burden bear,
And I am strong once more.

Gerald Massey.
So in my heart did love awake
When breathed upon by thee,

William Leggett.

[graphic]

September.

Thy shield is the red harvest moon, suspended

So long beneath the heavens' o'erhanging eaves ; Thy steps are by the farmer's prayers attended :

Like flames upon an altar shine the sheaves ; And following thee in thy oration splendid, Thine almoner, the wind, scatters the golden leaves.

LONGFELLOW.

Around her feet domestic duties meet,
And fireside pleasures gambol at her feet;
His home, the spot of earth supremely blest,
A dearer, sweeter spot than all the rest.

Montgomery.
Home! you are merry ; this retired spot
Would be a palace for an owl.

John Tobin. September 2.

Though Greek and Latin be the lady's boast,

They're little valued by her loving mate;
The kind of tongue that husbands relish most
Is modern, boiled, and served upon a plate.

John G. Saxe.
And I loved her the more when I heard
Such tenderness fall from her tongue.

William Sherstone.
September 3.

Whene'er she speaks, my ravish'd ear
No other voice than hers can hear,
No other wit but hers approve !
Tell me, my heart, if this be love?

Lord Lyttelton. Whereso'er I am, below, or else above you, Whereso'er you are, my heart shall truly love you.

Thomas Sylvestre.
