To the vine that our forefathers planted?

Let France boast the lily — let Britain be vain

Of her thistles, and shamrocks, and roses;
Our shrubs and our blossoms sprout out from the main.

And our bold shore their beauty discloses.
With a liome and a country, a soul and a God,

What freeman with terrors is haunted?
Bedecked with the dew drops and washed with the flood

Is the vine that our forefathers planted.

Tlien a health to the brave and the worthy that bore

The vine whose rich clusters o'ershade us;
Tlicy planted its root by the rocks of the shore.

And call'd down His blessing who made us.
And a health to the Fair who will raise iip a brave

Generation of Yankees undaunted.
To nourish, to cherish, to honor and save

The vine that our forefathers planted.

STAXZAS.
On the lake of young life is a fairy boat,

Like the sweet new moon in a summer sky:
Through a calm of brightness it seems to float.
And in light and beauty Its course to ply.
As sudden as a cricket's spring

Its feathery paddles dip the seas.
As gaily as the hum-birds wing

Its sails arrest the scented breeze:
And pennons bright and streamers gay
Flutter above the diamond spray.
As the keel cuts its wimpling way.

A little boy — they call him Love —

Witli dimpled cheek and sunny brow.
And pinions like a nestling dove.

Sits laughing on the fairy prow.
And one as rosy bright as he,"

Bearing his torch of purest light,
With more of joy and less of glee.

Trims the gay bark and shapes aright
The course, as they distance to weather and lee
The scud of the sky and the foam of the sea.

Two forms are their lading, two hearts are their care.

And precious the charge that they joy to convey;
The young and the happy, the brave and the fair.
Have sped on their journej-. how blithely away!
But as the moon, which shone but now

A silver streak of heavenly light.
With added glory on her brow

>fow nobly walks the queen of night —



Motto of the arms of Connecticut.



(58 Brainerd-Brainard Genealo<jjj.

And firmly moves, though clouds arise.
, By storm and tempest fiercely driven,
Shrouding the blue and starry skies.

And darkening all the lights of heaven; —
Thus sped the boat; each wale became
Of strong and more enduring frame.
And sternly to the sweeping blast
Stood out the tall and gallant mast.

That boy has strength and courage high.

And manhood- lights with thought his eye;

And he, the pilot, sits demure

In dignity, serene, secure ;

Yes, all have left their brightness now,

A brighter hope is on each brow;

No faiii-icfl fhai-t. nf fairy bays

And flliii i-li'^, ilircct their ways —

A hca\iiily L'liiili' -its kindly there.

Direct iiii; tln' c..ni-e of the brave and the fair,

In yon blessed place be their anchor cast.

And holy the haven they find at last.
