Leaving him, faint with the longing of love,
    Unable to follow her flight."

* Ed. ― ROBERT BUCHANAN.



 

"BELL from the North hath journey'd hither,
 She brings the scent of heather with her,
     To show in what sweet glens she grew,—
 Where'er she trips in any weather,
 She steps as if she trod on heather,
     And leaves a sense like dropping dew.

ROBERT BUCHANAN.

――♦――
 

"Even the fourth-rate work of a master has always some suggestion of the masterly about it, which is beneficial to those not yet trained to appreciate other than fourth-rate work.  I rejoice when men of genius like Alexander Smith, or George MacDonald, become Occasional Easy-writers, and do an "On," "About," or "Concerning."  Their pot-boilers may not always be "first chop," to use a vulgar expression; but be sure if they do three of them, one will be a work of merit—"

J. F. MCLENNON,
from. . . . 'Concerning Easy Writing.'

"I kneel to my father for his grace,
    Right lowly on my knee;
But I stand and look the king in the face,
    For the skipper is king o' me."

She turned and she sprang upo' the deck,
    And the cable splashed in the sea.
The good ship spread her wings sae white,
    And away with the skipper goes she.

 

GEORGE MACDONALD.
