 CHARLES MOREAU HARGER. 61

 
Are sealed in thy bosom forever, 
    Lost Gem of the Sea? 
              Atlantis, 
    Atlantis! Lost Gem of the Sea. 
 
Great mother of nations unnumbered, 
    Once teeming with manifold life, 
For centuries past thou hast slumbered, 
    Unmoved by the surge's hoarse strife. 
Man's curious questionings scorning, 
    Close-hidden thy secrets shall be, 
Till thou greetest eternity's morning, 
    Lost Gem of the Sea, 
              Atlantis, 
    Atlantis! Lost Gem of the Sea. 
 
  
 
THE SOD SCHOOL HOUSE.
 
______
 
 
AN earthen mound on the prairie's swell, 
    The work of rough settlers' hands, 
An uncouth temple for learning made, 
Its wails of the rudest earth-squares laid__
    A lone sod school house stands. 
 
Not a tree in sight from the open door, 
    Not a shrub on the landscape's face, 
But a sea of grass fills all the view, 
Its waves are of emerald's sparkling hue, 
    And above cloud-shadows race.
