GLOAMIN' HOURS. By Robert Cathcart.

“ And for these words, thus woven into song,
It may be that they are a harmless wile-
The colouring of the scenes which fleet along,
Which I would seize, in passing, to beguile
My breast, or that of others, for a while.
Fame is the thirst of youth-but I am not
So young as to regard men's frown or smile
As loss or guerdon of a glorious lot,
I stood and stand alone-remembered or forgot."
