BANNOCKBURN

At Bannockburn the English lay,
The Scots they were na far away,
But waited for the break o' day,
That glinted in the east.

But soon the sun broke through the heath
And lighted up the field o' death,
When Bruce, wi' saul-inspiring breath
His heralds thus addressed:-

“ Scots wha hae wi' Wallace bled,
Scots wham Bruce has often led,
Welcome to your gory bed,
Or to glorious victory.

“ Now's the day, and now's the hour;
See the front o' battle lour;
See approach proud Edward's power –
Edward! chains and slavery!

“Wha will be a traitor knave?
Wha can fill a coward's grave,
Wha sae base as be a slave ?
Traitor! coward! turn and flee.

“ Wha for Scotland's king and law
Freedom's sword will strongly draw,
Freeman stand or freeman fall,
Caledonia ! on wi' me.

“ By oppression's woes and pains !
By your sons in servile chains !
We will drain our dearest veins,
But they shall be — shall be free.

“ Lay the proud usurpers low;
Tyrants fall in every foe,
Liberty's in every blow!
Forward ! let us do, or die!” Burns.

FROM PIPPA PASSES

The year's at the Spring
And day's at the morn,
Morning's at seven:
The hillside's dew-pearled,
The lark's on the wing,
The snail's on the thorn,
God's in his heaven,
All's right with the world. — Browning.

THE FIFTIETH BIRTHDAY OF AGASSIZ

It was fifty years ago

In the pleasant month of May,
In the beautiful Pays de Vaud,

A child in its cradle lay.

And Nature, the old nurse, took

The child upon her knee,
Saying: “Here is a story-book

Thy Father has written for thee.”

“ Come, wander with me,” she said,

“ Into regions yet untrod; And read what is still unread

In the manuscripts of God.”

And he wandered away and away

With Nature, the dear old nurse,
