HENRY K. PASMA We stood br the window, weary Love and I, She gazed toward the lingering South, whi le a moody sigh Betrayed the distress of her heart; and her plaintive voice asked , "Why,


Whither, 0 swallow. 0 hope-winged swallow, why didst thou fly?"


We stood by the window; whirling snow flakes fell, A North wind mocked the chim es of the s hi vering vesper-bell; "Ah heart," quote s he, "they have come, I know it well . Phantoms of hate to bury my hope in the meads of AsphodeL"

We stood by the window, we lingered far into the night, Listless Love her sorrow-filled eyes lifted up to the myriads bright Bright stehar-fires, soft murmured she, "Oh. could they light, Like beacons upon a stranger coast, my weary spirit's flight." We stood by the window, waiting when tardy day, With numb, ruddy fingers unfolded Earth's festive array; Pale sunbeams stTew glittering gems o'er the g arment, far and away; ·• Oh surely," mused sad Love, "such splendor becomes a holiday." " She opened the window, wondering; - but on the sill No twitertng swallow a lighted; nature, reposeful, lay still Far leaned she out, sad Love, and listened, till faintly a thrill, A, thin silver pealing of bells floats tremulously over the hill. Then tur~ed she away from the window; a joyous Christmas-bell Sang the sweet Angel-song to h er heart, new hopes her bosom swell; Spa ke sh~ "Lie buried, 0, Pleasure, in the m eadows of Asphodel, Hark, thedoy of my Soul is coming from blessed Judea's hill."
