Cyril M. Drew. ON AN OLD ROMAUNT. When the night is dark and dreary, and the north-wind whistles shrill, And the snow-storm drives in fury down the plain beneath the hill, Like the necromancer's mirror, when his magic perfumes burn, Mocking Time, these curious volumes make the glorious Past return. Fast as ripples on the river, or cloud-shadows on the grass, As I read their quaint old pages, down my curtained chamber pass Mitred priest, and hospitaller, armed and mounted for the fray, Bands of bronzed condottieri, maidens fair as laughing May.

" So hour by hour, from flower to flower, We sip the sweets of life; Till, ah! too soon the clouds arise, And knitted brows and angry eyes Proclaim the dawn of strife. With half a smile and half a sigh, "Amare! " we cry. Last night we owned, with looks forlorn, "Too well the scholar knows There is no rose without a thorn—" But peace is made! " Lewis Carroll.
Austin Dobson. MY BOOKS. They dwell in the odour of camphor, They stand in a Sheraton shrine, They are "warranted early editions," These worshipful tomes of mine;— In their creamiest "Oxford vellum," In their redolent "crushed Levant," With their delicate watered linings, They are jewels of price, I grant;— Blind-tooled and morocco-jointed, They have Bedford's daintiest dress, They are graceful, attenuate, polished, But they gather the dust, no less;— For the row that I prize is yonder. Away on the unglazed shelves, The bulged and the bruised octavos, The dear and the dumpy twelves,— Montaigne with his sheep-skin blistered.
