Meeting with joy, and parting with tears,
Love were not love, but for love's hopes and fears,
Hopes for to-morrow, kisses for to-day,
Think not of sorrow, love while we may.

C. H. A.

Whate'er my desire is, in thine may be seen
I am king of the household, and thou art its queen.


(Annie of Tharaw). March 26. Oh, no! thy love, though much, is not so great,

It is my love that keeps mine eye awake, Mine own true love that doth my rest defeat, To play the watchman ever for thy sake.


(Love's Labour's Lost). A heavy heart, Belovëd, have I borne From year to year until I saw tly face.

E. B. Browning March 27.

Sweetness, truth, and ev'ry grace,

Which time and use are wont to teach,

The eye may in a moment reach
And read distinctly in her face.


Thou'rt more dear in thy sorrow, thy gloom, and thy

show'rs Than the rest of the world in their sunniest hours.

I have a heart for her that's kind,

Alip for her that smiles,
But if her mind be like the wind
I'd rather foot it twenty miles.

Ere I learn love, I'll practise to obey.


(Comedy of Errors). March 29.

My wife the meerschaum cannot bear,

Nor yet the pipe of clay ;
She knows not how I blow dull care
With 'bacca smoke away.

Then he will talk-Good gods ! how he will talk !

Nat Lee.

March 30.
No evil ever shall betide.
My love while I am at her side ;
Lo! thy protector and thy friend,
The arms that fold thee will defend.

John Logan.
I do love you more than words
Can wield the matter.


(King Lear).

March 30.

Let fortune's gifts at random flee,
They ne'er shall draw a wish frae mę,
Supremely blest wi' love an' thee,

My dearie.
