Sweet border-laad ef her lot be his What more have king made their dynasties? Youth comes space as a day In June The song In bis heart has love's law tune. He reels the flutter of passing wings. While he singing toils and tolling siags. Ijve beckons afar to Howery strands He dreams ta the light of Its border-lands. Now the man delves deep la mines of thought, Till Ambition's sword with tUme Is wrought, . On the border-land mirages loom, And hi heart goes down In wares of gloom. O, temple of love and tender youth. Awake your altar with Hps of truth. Keturn with lilies so white and rare Totwlao on the fevered brow of care. He-give the charm of your lotus-leaves, While peace reblods her gloryebeaves. And boe with justice be Interwoven 'Till the race shall ken the Joy of heaven, Whose border land and Its halo be The life and love of eternity. Clearwater, Web.. June 3. HWI. HE TOOK NO RISKS.
