WAITING.

Pretty robin, there's a maiden tall, and fair,

and rather stately, I am waiting alone while shadows grow, ind the light in the west departeth slow,

With a voice as soft as yours is, dwelling Waiting, while breezes come and go,

in that very cot, In the sunset glow.

And her tresses catch the sunbeams, though

she speaks and moves sedately, A rosebud gleams through the failing light, And her eyes are just the color of a blue Just the ghost of a rosebud, pure and white, forget-me-not. In its heart a glistening dewdrop bright Will he come to-night?

Where the moonbeams play.

He carved a flute of elder green,

And notched it well and true, Ah! how the perfume of that rose

Then pursed his lips and puffed his cheeks, Amid the silence heavy grows !

And merrily he blew.
The wand'ring night-wind scarcely blows
In the dread repose.

For it was springtime holiday,

A sun-tanned boy was he,
I will come,” he said. Ah! Love, come With russet freckles on his face
now,

And a patch' upon his knee.
For Time flies fast, I know not how.
I wait beneath the rose's bough,

The apple boughs above him flung
But where art thou?
