"SUFFER LITTLE CHILDREN TO COME
BY JOSEPH L. CHESTER, ESQ.
ABOVE me hangs a Picture-one that Art
Sat by the Artist's side, and on his hand
Her finger press'd, that, when his pencil moved O'er the fair page, its lines were her's-not his: CHRIST With His crown of thorns and broken reed! How rare a Face! The thoughtless passer stands Transfixed, as that meek, mournful eye meets his, And sees no longer Art's elaborate work,
But CHRIST Himself, as on that mournful day
He bore the scourge, and drank the mingled draught. How o'er my vision pass the varied scenes
