BY AMELIA JOSEPHINE BURR
Over the hills with the Romany train,
In the sweet wet woods and the whispering rain,
Looking back through veils of gray
To the roofs of the town where we paused to-day.
There, in the crowd of the market-place,
Is a Romany heart with a Gorgio face.
"l'here did you find the heart of my clan,
l'nder the shadow of roof and spire ?
Did your mother dream of a Romany man
· In the house of your Gorgio sire?.

Even so shall you dream of me.
· When you light the hearth for a fair white bride-

Of a road untrodden, a door untried, : ..
And an hour that is never' to be. . .
I have set my patteran
Deep in your Romany heart..',
I broke the branch from my tree of life .
Where the fairest buds had begun to start-
And they never shall bloom, but they never shall fall.
Wide are the ways of your feet and mine ;
It's the market-place for the Gorgio face
And the roof and the spire and the fair white wife.
I'm over the hills with the Romany chal,
And there's never a fire shall warm us twain
The, width of a world apart::..
But what is a world to the Romany heart
That follows the Romany sign?

MY WISH
BY ELIZABETH HANLY

This is a poem to be read only by those who love Stevenson's “ The Lamplighter,"

or children, or both. We frankly advise every one else to skip it.—THE EDITORS. If I could be who I would be,

If I could go where I would go, If suddenly to me God said,

In all the lovely lands that are " Of all my dear and noble dead

From Southern Cross to Polar Star, Choose one to be again on earth

If I could linger for a space For strife or service, toil or mirth, In one long-loved, earth-hallowed place, Resume, one lour, mortality,--".

Why', then God's will should set me down I know right well who I would be. At nightfall in a Scottish town.

In - Leerie's ” shape I would go forth
Through that dim city of the North,
And run again with eager feet
Along the Edinboro' street,
To light the gas lamps, one by one,
And nod to little Stevenson !
And as he lay in bed, he'd see
My street-stars shining in a row.
If I could be who I would be,
If I could go where I would go.
