Now Bacchus perceiving
The lady was grieving,

He spoke to her civil, and tipp'd her a wink;
And the more that she fretted,
He soother'd and petted,

And gave her a glass her own health just to dhrink;

Her pulse it beat quicker, The thrifle of liquor Enliven'd her sinking heart's cockles, I think

So the moral is plain,

That if love gives you pain, There's nothing can cure it like taking to dhrink.

THE FAIRY BOY.

A MOTHER came, when stars were paling,
Wailing round a lonely spring,
Thus she cried while tears were falling,
Calling on the Fairy King:
"Why, with spells my child caressing,
Courting him with fairy joy,
Why destroy a mother's blessing,
Wherefore steal my baby boy?

"O'er the mountain, thro' the wild wood, Where his childhood loved to play, Where the flow'rs are freshly springing, There I wander, day by day;

There I wander, growing fonder
Of the child that made my Joy
On the echoes wildly calling
To restore my fairy boy.

M

"But in vain my plaintive calling,
Tears are falling all in vain,
He now sports with fairy pleasure,
He's the treasure of their train!
Fare thee well! my child, for ever,
In this world I've lost my joy,
But in the next we ne'er shall sever,
There I'll find my angel boy."

Flow on thou shining river.
