Traveler I vrr tfe
Meeting moments, fleetly.
Wherefore, greet me Itindly
Hate ftrifces wildly, blindly:
When brief time will part them,
Each 'gasaat each doth arm him.

Be with us our largest,
So, thy roae go I mine
For, through cloud aad sunshine,
Ccme: the day.
When we shall foregather,
Sowiogs reap together,
Thus wise way.

Look at the cactus plains abloom
with their god and their rich deep red.
Starved by an empty acrid soil,
Dried by the sweep of resistless air.
Scorched by the glare of a brazen sky,
Yet these are the flowers we bear!

The weakest saint upon hk knees.
What ever," she asked "did they
want to sit on Satan's knees for? I'm
buio 1 ehould not like to sit on Satan's
knees at all. And why should he trem
