  1. Shovelling Snow

    by Harry Edward Mills

    Sparkling eyes, cheeks aglow,
    See him shovelling through the snow.
    Few will tread his opened way,
    None his labors will repay;

    Hear him humming soft and low,
    As he shovels in the snow.

    At a humble window see
    Picture fair as fair can be;
    Maidenhood in rustic bloom
    Standing by an idle broom.

    How the blushes come and go
    As she sees the flying snow.

    Simple hearts so young and warm,
    Love has taken you by storm.
    May the winters as they roll,
    Closer bind you soul to soul;

    May your heaven here below
    Be as spotless as the snow.

  2. Our Friendship

    by Ellen P. Allerton

    They say true friendship changeth not,
    But grows and grows;
    Through chance, and time, and treacherous plot,
    Through change of scene and change of lot,
    Still changeless shows.

    If this be true, sure here is seen
    Some great mistake!
    The friend of years no friend hath been,
    Else naught on earth could come between,
    The bond to break.

    Am I, then, false? I meant no lie;
    Yet nevermore
    With friendship on my lip, can I,
    As oft aforetime, seek thine eye,
    Or cross thy door!

    Dost marvel why? 'Tis quickly told.
    Here at thy feet
    I fling away our friendship old,
    Because henceforth our two hearts hold
    A tie more sweet!

    I love thee! therefore can we be
    No longer friends.
    Thou takest what I offer thee—
    Thy whole heart's sweetness givest me.
    So friendship ends.

  3. The Captive

    by Jessie Belle Rittenhouse

    Only a day ago, it seems,
    The world was a wide, wide place,
    And all my thoughts could wander far
    On the four winds of space.

    But now my thoughts are captive birds
    That have no will for flight,
    You shut them fast within your heart
    All on an April night.

  4. His Letter

    by Ruby Archer

    Down in the grass I found her,
    Above a letter bent;
    The autumn leaves around her
    Their soft mosaic blent.

    She read the letter slowly,
    As one that sips a joy.
    I felt intruder wholly,
    And certain to annoy.

    She gave me loving greeting,
    And drew me to her side,
    While up her cheek went fleeting
    A flow of rosy tide.

    "I am so happy, Dearie,"
    I heard her softly say,
    "So happy, happy, Dearie,—
    His letter came to-day!"

    And all she told me of it
    I have in mind so well;
    She whispered me above it—
    "—"—I promised not to tell!

  5. Is Loving Like This?

    by Ruby Archer

    Rhythmical meeting of fingers,
    Perfect according of thought,
    Feeling of presence that lingers,
    All with a fine meaning fraught.

    Brain in a sweet measure ringing,
    Heart in a rapture of pain,
    Arms that lie heavy in clinging,
    Bounty that gives but to gain.

    Eyes with a warm languor gleaming,
    Lips that must kiss, ah—must kiss,—
    This is the love of my dreaming.
    Tell me, is loving like this?

  6. Summer and You

    by Ruby Archer

    Summer is dead—and yet, my own,
    It lives in you.
    You are my flowers, and sunny hours,
    And skies all blue.

    Rose-laden breeze among the trees,
    Your whispered words.
    You are my brooks, and forest nooks,
    And singing birds.

  7. O Faithless One

    by Ruby Archer

    Thy face away I see more clearly
    Than those that lean above.
    Thy merest word I hold more dearly
    Than others' vows of love.

    More dear than many an eager token
    Thy failing, howe'er wept;
    More precious far thy promise broken
    Than any other's kept.

  9. The Door of Dreams

    by Jessie Belle Rittenhouse

    I often passed the Door of Dreams
    But never stepped inside,
    Though sometimes, with surprise, I saw
    The door was open wide.

    I might have gone forever by,
    As I had done before,
    But one day, when I passed, I saw
    You standing in the door.
