SELECT POETRY FOR CHILDREN.

YOUTH AND AGE.

SATURDAY AFTERNOON.

I LOVE to look on a scene like this,

Of wild and careless play,
And persuade myself that I'm not old,

And my locks are not yet gray ;
For it stirs the blood in an old man's heart,

And it makes his pulses fly,
To catch the thrill of a happy voice,

And the light of a pleasant eye.

I have walked the world for fourscore years,

And they say that I am old,
And my heart is ripe for the reaper Death,

And my years are well nigh told.
It is very true, it is very true,

I'm old, and I “bide my time ;”
But

ту heart will leap at a scene like this,
And I half renew my prime.
