careth for his parents' line.
The wife attracts the husband: with a shout of joy the man's
auspicious marriage is performed aright.
4 This beauteous place of meeting have I looked upon, where,
milch-cows, the kine order the marriage train;
Where the Herd's Mother counts as first and best of all, and

Give me your stars to hold.
THE roofs are shining from the rain,

And with a windy April grace
The little clouds go by.
Yet the back-yards are bare and brown
With only one unchanging tree--
I could not be so sure of Spring
Save that it sings in me.

knelt on the soft grass and rested Polly's head upon his knee.
The others pressed about them. It seemed to Douglas that he
waited hours; then her white lids quivered and opened and the
colour crept back to her lips.
"It's all right, Jim!" called one of the men from the crowd.
