To us, through moonshine pale, she came--As fragile-fair, a beam of night! Ev'n to the haggard house of shame Came she, so spiritlike and white, And said,--"If you have that to give That is not hard of self, and chill As gold, then bid my heart to live, That is so bound, so torn, so ill." of Sharon and Sorck, And the rich red rose of love,--Can they ivile such grief away?

Why, when such victor draweth near, Keep we like ghosts?"

(Light child of Jephthah's!...
