EASE AND CARE.

GOD's angel counseled me one day 
  Sweet peace to make 'twixt Ease and Care; 
He bade me have them cast away 
  Old feuds, and henceforth be a loving pair. 
 
For Ease soft maiden was, and Care 
  A warrior grim, and clad in mail; 
His look distressed the tender fair, 
  His rough caresses made her pale. 
 
Then having met most oft With Care 
  "Thou art, O friend, of too stern mien," 
I said; "to win yon maiden fair, 
  Thou must thine armor doff, I ween." 
(13)
