FOUNDATION WORDS.

FOUNDATION WORDS.
As celestial a creature as ever was known,

My soothing words Yet not fit for heaven I really must own.

You love to hear ;

Like music sweet, But look at his head, and you'd say it

They charm the ear. were vain To introduce me where waterfalls reign.

From mothers' lips

I lull to sleep;

I make you laugh,
CROSS WORDS.

I make you weep.
A one-eyed blacksmith, I
Must serve the gods or die.

CROSS WORDS.

The pet of the children,
Within my name there lurks

The plague of the cook,
The paradise of Turks.

A story I would tell

If I could write a book.
The writers of our time!
In this bright group I shine.

I reigned as a king

O'er the fair land of Greece;
A house not built on land,

Her fame shall ne'er depart,
Nor made by human hand.

Her glory never cease.
I shout thy name so dear!

To weary ones
Discovery is near.

I bring sweet rest,

And send the bird
Among my wounded brave

To seek her nest.
An angel moved to save.

On me burst forth
Reproach, alas ! not rare,

Fresh buds of spring,
Of beauty everywhere.

And birds revive
“ THE SEVEN GABLES."

The drooping wing.
