HENRY WADSWORTH LONGFELLOW.
With pride, .with love, I dedicate my beok, \
To one, world-known, and tenderly revered:'' I am, at best, a lowly murmuring brook,"
Lost sight of when the broad," deep ocean's aear'd. Yet have I dipt my urn in Nature's witves,
I draw it forth from the rich streams of Truth, To win young feet unto the tide that saves,
Bright for the eyes of innocence and youth.
An altar raise for Life, in life's fair morn;
Yea, from the cradle of the child new born; And the declivity that leads to death
Embalm with teachings from our^Saviour's breath.
