THE LITTLE STRAW HAT.
And I hear the tones which in heaven have
'Tis a dear little hat, and it hangs there still — 0, call him not hack to this saddened earth !
And its voice of the past bids our heart-strings
For it seems like a shadow of days passed o'er,
Of the bright one who that hat once wore. ACTIVITY IN THE ROYAL DOCKYARDS.
'Tis a dear little hat, for each simple braid
Tells that oft o'er its plaiting those fingers played, I stood in Portsmouth, on the Dockyard ground,
And many a wreath for its crown hathi been
And looked about for industry's display ;
But when of work I did not hear the sound,
To the grateful taste of his youthful mind.
I thought, of course, it was a holiday.
Yes ; there silent it hangs with its curling front,
I was mistaken ; things pursued their course
According to the customary track ;
Still as playfully rolled as had been its wont;
I saw nine men uniting all their force
But the golden ringlets which waved below
Have curled their last clusters long ago.
To move what one might carry on his back.
I saw four stalwart fellows, tall and stout,
Ay, the hat is the same, but it shades no more
Who with their arms compactly folded stood,
Those light blue eyes as in days of yore ; Looking at one, who, as he stared about,
And the sun-lit smile that danced o’er that brow,
Morticed — by fits and starts - a bit of wood.
Can but light up our hearts' sad memories now.
I saw two brawny men with feeble blows
Sad memories they are ; o'er their quivering An iron hoop upon some timber drive ;
And when 't was on — - for practice, I suppose -
Each breath of the by-gone a tremor flings, To take it off again they did contrive.
And joys that we fain would waken again, I saw four others working at a mast;
In memory are wreathed with a thrill of pain.
But their pursuit I scarce had time to con,
Then recall not the past — though the dimpled
When I perceived with admiration vast
Nine more at the proceeding looking on.
May never again clasp the braided strand, I saw two horses drag a single stone ;
Though the breeze no longer may bear the tone At scarce two miles an hour their pace I fix,
Of the ringing laughter of childhood's own. Though by one horse the job could have been
Ah! think of him now, with a glittering crown Not at two miles an hour, but five or six.
O'er his heavenly forehead resting down,
While his fingers stray o'er the golden wire,
Yet Portsmouth boasts, they say, a model yard ;
That blends with his voice 'mid the cherub choir. We've heard that story many a time and oft ;
But he who henceforth thinks they 're working
Ay, I see him now with the holy light
Pouring broad on his brow with radiance bright, At Portsmouth Dockyard, will be precious soft.
