POETICAL EXEROISES IN PARSING.--LESSON 20.
The other shape,
If shape it might be call'd that shape had none,
Or substance might be call'd that shadow seem'd,
For each seem'd either; black it stood as night,
Fierce as ten furies, terrible as hell,
And shook a dreadful dart;—what seem'd his head,
The likeness of a kingly crown had on.

When worn with sickness, oft hast thou,

With health, rènew'd my face;
And when in sin and sorrow sunk,
Reviv'd

my

soul with grace.
Where, thy true treasure? Gold says, "not in me;"!"
And, "not in me,” the Diamond. Gold is poor.
The scenes of business tell us what are men;-
The scenes of pleasure, what is all beside.
Thus nature gives us, let it check, our pride,
The virtue nearest to our vice allied.

POETICAL EXERCISES IN PARSING.-LESSON 24.
Whatever is, is right; this world, 'tis true,
Was made for Cesar;- but for Titus too.
And which more blessed? Who chain’d his country, say,
Or he whose virtue sigh'd to lose a day?

There is a time when toil must be prefer'd,
Or joy, by mistim'd fondness is undone;-

A man of pleasure is a man of pains.
Man, like the generous vine, supported lives;
The strength receiv'd is from the embrace he gives.

All this dread order break? for whom?
For thee! Vile worm! O madness! pride! impiety!

Winter.
1. Well', old gentleman', thou hast come again,

To give poor mortals another cold embrace';
But still’, I see', in thy forbearing mien',

Some smiles of comfort in thy frosty face'. 2. Extend thy snowy mantle o’er the world',

And', with thy icy sceptre', tyrant', reign';
O’er nature fair', thy tempests may be hurl'd',

And northern blasts may sweep along the plain';. 3. Thou wilt not hurt my little thatched cot',

As thou rid'st tow'ring on the passing gale';
But', pause', delighted with my happy lot',

And', whistling', listen to the evening tale'.
4. But if thou caperest round my house', and storm',

And troublest with thy chills an honest soul',
I warn thee now', beware thy grisly form',

I'll burn thee', like a wood-chuck', from thy liole'. 5. Stay', stay', old fellow'; I recall that threat';

I feel my powers are weaker far thine';
Should I attempt to make thy noddle sweat',
I fear one smack from theo, might shiver mine'.

On earth, nought precious is obtain’d,

But what is painful too;
By travail, and to travail, born,

Our Sabbaths are but few.
I sigh not for beauty, nor languish for wealth
Bixt grant me, kind Providence, virtue and health.
In books, or work, or healthful play,
Let
ту

first hours be past,
That I may give for every day,
Some good account at last.
