Of all the day are best,
But as they speed their hasty flight,
If every hour is spent aright,
We sweetly sink to sleep at night,

And pleasant is our rest.

It seems so quickly past.
Youth is the morning, bright and gay;
And if ’tis spent in wisdom's way,
We meet old age without dismay,
And death is sweet at last.

above,
That he sings, and he sings, and for ever

sings he-
"I love
my Love, and

my

Love loves me." S. T. COLERIDGE.
