MISCELLANEOUS POEMS.

THE SANDS OF DEE.

“O Mary, go and call the cattle home,

And call the cattle home,

And call the cattle home Across the sands of Dee ;” The western wind was wild and dank wi' foam,

And all alone went she.

And o’er and o'er the sand,

And round and round the sand, As far as eye could see. The rolling mist came down and hid the land —

And never home came she.
