STEREOTYPED BY THOMAS B. SMITH,

216 WILLIAM STREET, N. Y.

“I sometimes hold it half a sin

To put in words the grief I feel;

For words, like nature, half reveal
And half conceal the soul within.

But, for the unquiet heart and brain,

A use in measured language lies ;

The sad mechanic exercise,
Like dull narcotics, numbing pain.

In words, like weeds, I'll wrap me o'er,

Like coarsest clothes against the cold ;

But that large grief which these infold
Is given in outline and no more."

TENNYSON’s “ In Memoriam."
