The Bumblebee

You better not fool with a Bumblebee!--
Ef you don't think they can sting--you'll see!
They're lazy to look at, an' kindo' go
Buzzin' an' bummin' aroun' so slow,
An' ac' so slouchy an' all fagged out,
Danglin' their legs as they drone about
The hollyhawks 'at they can't climb in
'Ithout ist a-tumble-un out agin!
Wunst I watched one climb clean 'way
In a jim'son-blossom, I did, one day,--
An' I ist grabbed it--an' nen let go--
An' "_Ooh-ooh! Honey! I told ye so!_"
Says The Raggedy Man; an' he ist run
An' pullt out the stinger, an' don't laugh none,
An' says: "They _has_ ben folks, I guess,
'At thought I wuz predjudust, more er less,--
Yit I still muntain 'at a Bumblebee
Wears out his welcome too quick fer me!"

She moved among us like to

WHILE Hester lived, the day was bright With something more than common light-- 'Twas the moon's difference to the night. As summer sun and summer shower Revive the tree, the herb, and flower, Hers was the gift of warmth and power. She was not what the world calls wise; Yet, the mute language of her eyes Was worth a thousand homilies. She was so crystal pure a thing, That sin to her could no more cling Than water to a sea-bird's wing. Like memory-tones heard long ago, Her
