 MARY L. BARD. 15

 
I fancied the angel's footsteps 
    Had worn off the golden pave; 
And that God had bidden an angel 
    To gather the flecks of gold, 
And dissolve them there in the sunlight, 
    That mortals might thus behold 
A gleam of the golden glory 
    That gleameth forever and aye, 
'Neath the trees, by tide crystal fountains, 
    Where eternal sunbeams play. 
 
 
 
THE NEW YEAR.

Good deeds and ill, dear Lord, 
In this fair book shall be; 
    And smiles and tears, 
    And hopes and fears, 
Thy holy eyes shall see! 
 
And many a page, dear Lord, 
    That only Thou canst read: 
    Creation's groans__
    The secret moans 
Of hearts that inly bleed.
