Bear lightly on their foreheads, Time Strew roses on their way, The young in heart, however old, That prize the present day, And wiser than the pompous proud, Are wise enough to play. I love to see a man foro-et o His blood is growing cold, And leap, or sv, itn, or gather flowers, Oblivious ol his gold, And mix with children in their sport, JN'or think that he is old. All sports that spare the humblest pain, That neither maim nor kill: That lead us to the quiet field, Or to the wholesome hilJ, Are duties which the pure cff heart Religiously fulfil. The road of life is hard enough, Bestrewn with slag and thorn, I would not mock the simplest joy That made it loss forlorn, But fill iis evening path with flowers As fresh as those of morn. Give us but health and peace of mind, hatc'er our cliine or clan, We'll take delight in simple things, Nor deem the sports unman And let the proud, who liy no Kites, Despise us if they can! runner's Department.
