    Whence has come thy lasting power.
          On an old Song.

    The stately ship is seen no more,
The fragile skiff attains the shore;
And while the great and wise decay,
And all their trophies pass away,
Some sudden thought, some careless rhyme,
Still floats above the wrecks of Time.
          On an old Song.
 
Mary Mapes Dodge. (1831–1905)

    Whenever a snowflake leaves the sky,
It turns and turns to say “Good-by!
Good-by, dear clouds, so cool and gray!”
Then lightly travels on its way.
          Snowflakes.
7901
    But when a snowflake, brave and meek,
Lights on a rosy maiden’s cheek,
It starts—“How warm and soft the day!”
“’T is summer!” and it melts away.
          Snowflakes.
7902
    Life is a mystery as deep as ever death can be;
Yet oh, how dear it is to us, this life we live and see!
          The two Mysteries.
7903
        But I believe that God is overhead
And as life is to the living, so death is to the dead.
          The two Mysteries.
 
John (Milton) Hay. (1838–1905)
 
7904
    He never funked and he never lied
I reckon he never knowed how.
          Jim Bludso.
