And my spirit shall gather new powers,

Uncramped by conventional bars.
Love for love, truth for truth ever giving,

My days shall be manfully sped ;
I shall know that I 'm loved while I 'm living.

And be wept by fond eyes when I 'm dead !





THE BOOK OF BALLADS.



I



/



Lightsome, brightsome, cousin mihe !

Easy, breezy Caroline !
With tby locks all raven- shaded,
From thy merry brow up -braided.
And thine eyes of laughter fuU,

Brightsome cousin mine !
Thou in chains of love hast bound me-
Wherefore dost thou flit around me.

Laughter-loving Caroline ?



When I fain would go to sleep

In my easy chair.
Wherefore on my slumbers creep —
Wherefore start me from repose.
Tickling of my hooked nose.

Pulling of my hair ?
Wherefore, then, if thou dost love me,
So to words of anger move me.

Corking of this face of mine,

Tricksy cousin Caroline !




235



When a sudden sound I hear,
Much my nervous system suffers,

Shaking through and through, —
Cousin Caroline, I fear,

'T was no other, now, but you
Put gunpowder in the snuffers,

Springing such a mine !
Yes, it was your tricksy self,
Wicked- tricked, little elf,

haughty cousin Caroline !

Pins she sticks into my shoulder,
Places needles in my chair.

And, when I begin to scold her,
Tosses back her combed hair.
With so saucy- vexed an air.

That the pitying beholder

Cannot brook that I should scold her :

Then again she comes, and bolder.
Blacks anew this face of mine,
Artful cousin Caroline!

Would she only say she 'd love me,
Winsome tinsome Caroline,

Unto such excess 't would move me,
Teazing, pleasing, cousin mine !



237



THE BOOK OF BALLADS.



That she might the live -long day
Undermine the snuffer tray,
Tickle still my hooked nose,
Startle me from calm repose

With her pretty persecution ;
Throw the tongs against my shins,
Eun me through and through with pins,

Like a pierced cushion ;
Would she only say she 'd love me,
Darning needles should not move me ;
Eut reclining back, I 'd say,
'* Dearest ! there 's the snuifer tray ;
Einch, pinch those legs of mine I
Cork me, cousin Caroline ! "

Sweet flower, that with thy soft blue eye
Did'st once look up in shady spot,

To whisper to the passer-by

Those tender words — Forget-me-not !

Though withered now, thou art to me
The minister of gentle thought,- —

And I could weep to gaze on thee.

Love's faded pledge — Forget-me-not !



/






#



Thou speak' st of hours when I was young,
And happiness arose unsought,

When she, the whispering woods among.
Gave me thy bloom — Forget-me-not !

What rapturous hour with that dear maid
From memory's page no time shall blot,

"When, yielding to my kiss, she said,
^'Oh, Theodore — Forget-me-not I "

Alas, for love ! alas, for truth. !

Alas for man's uncertain lot !
Alas for all the hopes of youth

That fade like thee — Eorget-me-not !



Alas ! for that one image fair,

With all my brightest dreams inwrought !
That walks beside me everywhere,

Still whispering — Forget-me-not !

Oh, memory ! thou art but a sigh

For friendships dead and loves forgot ;

And many a cold and altered eye.

That once did say — Forget-me-not !



!



And I must bow me to thy laws.

For — odd although it may be thought -

I can't tell who the deuce it was

That gave me this Forget-me-not !

*^ Why art thou weeping, sister ?

Why is thy cheek so pale ?
Look up, dear Jane, and tell me

What is it thou dost ail ?

'^ I know thy will is fro ward,
Thy feelings warm and keen,

And that that Augustus Howard
For weeks has not been seen.

'^ I know how much you loved him ;

But I know thou dost not weep
For him ; — for though his passion be,

His purse is noways deep.

'^ Then tell me why those teardrops ;

What means this woful mood ?
Say, has the tax-collector

Eeen calling, and been rude ?



^' Or has that hateful grocer.
The slave ! been here to-day ?

Of course he had, by morrow's noon,
A heavy bill to pay !

" Come, on thy brother's bosom
Unburden all thy woes ;

Look up, look up, sweet sister ;

There, dearest, blow your nose."



" Oh, John, 't is not the grocer,
For his account ; although

How ever he is to be paid,
I really do not know.

Though by his fell command,
They Ve seized our old paternal clock,

And new umbrella-stand :

Whom I despise almost, —
But the soot's come down the chimney, John,

And fairly spoiled the roast!"

" Whekefoke starts my bosom's lord ?

Why this anguish in thine eye ?
Oh, it seems as thy heart's chord

Had broken with that sigh !

'* Eest thee, my dear lord, I pray,
Eest thee on my bosom now !

And let me wipe the dews awaj^
Are gathering on thy brow.

*' There, again! that fevered start !

"What, love ! husband ! is thy pain ?
There is a sorrow on thy heart,

A weight upon thy brain !

^' Kay, nay, that sickly smile can ne'er
Deceive affection's searching eye ;

'Tis a wife's duty, love, to share
Her husband's agony.

^* Since tlie dawn began to peep^
Have I lain with stifled breath ;

Heard thee moaning in thy sleep,
As thou wert at grips with death.

'^ Oh, what joy it was to see

My gentle lord once more awake !

Tell me, what is amiss with thee ?
Speak, or my heart will break ! "

''Mary, thou angel of my life.
Thou ever good and kind ;

'T is not, believe me, my dear wife.
The anguish of the mind !

'^ It is not in my bosom, dear,
Wo, nor my brain, in sooth ;

But Mary, oh, I feel it here.
Here in my wisdom tooth !

*' Then give, — oh, first, best antidote, -
Sweet partner of my bed !

Give me thy flannel petticoat
To wrap around my head ! "

'^Eeothee, thou art veiy Aveaiy,

And thine eye is sunk and dim,
And thy neckcloth's tie is crumpled,

And thy collar out of trim ;
There is dust upon thy \T.sage, —

Think not Charles I would hurt ye,
When I say, that altogether.

You appear extremely dirty.

*^ Frown not, hrother, now, hut hie thee

To thy chamber's distant room ;
Drown the odours of the ledger

With the lavender's perfume.
Brush the mud from off thy trowsers.

O'er the china basin kneel.
Lave thy brows in water softened

With the soap of Old Castile.

^' Smooth the locks that o'er thy forehead

1^0 w in loose disorder stray ;
Pare thy nails, and from thy whiskers

Cut those ragged points away.
Let no more thy calculations

Thy bewildered brain beset ;
Life has other hopes than Cocker's,

Other joys than tare and tret.

^' Haste thee, for I ordered dinner.

Waiting to the very last,
Twenty minutes after seven.

And 't is now the quarter past.
'T is a dinner which Lucullus

Would have wept with joy to see.
One, might wake the soul of Curtis

From Death's drowsy atrophy.



^' There is soup of real turtle,

Turbot, and the dainty sole ;
And the mottled roe of lobsters

Blushes through the butter bowl.
There the lordly haunch of mutton.

Tender as the mountain grass,
Waits to mix its ruddy juices

With the girdling caper- sauce.

*' There a stag, whose brancliing forehead

Spoke him monarch of the herds,
He whose flight was o'er the heather,

Swift as through the air the bird's,
Yields for thee a dish of cutlets ;

And the haunch that wont to dash
O'er the roaring mountain torrent,

Smokes in most delicious hash.

** There, besides, are amber jellies

Moating like a golden dream ;
Ginger from the far Bermudas

Dishes of Italian cream ,
And a princely apple-dumpling.

Which my own fair fingers wrought,
Shall unfold its nectared treasures

To thy lips all smoking hot.

'* Ha ! I see thy brow is clearing,

Lustre flashes from thine eyes ;
To thy lips I see the moisture

Of anticipation rise.
Hark ! the dinner bell is sounding ! "

*^ Only wait one moment, Jane :
I '11 be dressed, and down, before you

Can get up the iced champagne ! "

Come hither, my heart's darling,

Come, sit upon my knee,
And listen, while I whisper

A boon I ask of thee.
You need not pull my whiskers

So amorously, my dove ;
'T is something quite apart from

The gentle cares of love.




I feel a bitter craving —

A dark and deep desire,
That glows beneath my bosom

Like coals of kindled fire.
The passion of the nightingale,

When singing to the rose,
Is feebler than the agony

That murders my repose !

IS'ay, dearest ! do not doubt me,

Though madly thus I speak —
I feel thy arms about me.

Thy tresses on my cheek :
I know the sweet devotion

That links thy heart with mine,
I know my soul's emotion

Is doubly felt by thine :




And deem not that a shadow

Hath fallen across my love :
'No, sweet, my love is shadowless,

As yonder heaven above. .
These little taper fingers —

Ah, Jane ! how white they be ! —
Can well supply the cruel want

That almost maddens me.

Thou wilt not sure deny me

My first and fond request ;
I pray thee, by the memory

Of all we cherish best —
By all the dear remembrance

Of those delicious days,
When, hand in hand, we wandered

Along the summer braes ;



By all we felt, unspoken.

When 'neath the early moon.
We sat beside the rivulet,

In the leafy month of June ;
And by the broken whisper

That fell upon my ear,
More sweet than angel-music.

When first I woo'd thee, dear !



By that great vow which bound thee

Eor ever to my side,
And by the ring that made thee

My darling and my bride !

Thou wilt not fail nor falter,
But bend thee to the task —

Of armies, in the centre of his troop

Pounding them into mummy. Shoulder, hoop !
