THE UGLY PRINCESS.
My parents bow and lead them forth
For all the crowd to see-
To cheer a dwarf like me.
They little know how I could love,
How I could plan and toil,
. III. · They little know what dreams have been
My playmates, night and day ; Of equal kindness, helpful care,
A mother's perfect sway.
Now earth to earth in convent walls,
To earth in churchyard sod : I was not good enough for man,
And so am given to God.
A THOUGHT FROM THE RHINE.
I HEARD an Eagle crying all alone
The baby sings not on its mother's breast-
