EVENING STAR. VATE&VAL LOVE. The following lines are a beautiful ejgures tion of the mother's love in nil its forms. Their simplicity in atyle and thought adis to their charm. As 1 walked over the bills one day 1 listened, and beard a mother sheep say ??In all the green world there Is nothing so sweet As my little lammie with his nlinble feet. With eyes so bright And his wool so white. ?, he is my darling, my heart's delight The robin, he That sings in the tree. Dearly mav doat on his darlings four. But 1 love my one little lambkin more." Ho the mother sheep, and the little one, Side by side, lay down In the son. And they went to sleep on the hill-side, warm, "While my little lammie lies here on my arm. I went to the kitchen, and what did I see But the old jjray cat. with her kittens, three; 1 heard her whispering soft. rsaid she: ?'My kittens, with tails so cunningly curled. Are the pretti*?st things there can be in the world. The bird in the tree, And the old ewe, she Way love her liable* eieeedingly; But I love my kittens from mora to night; Which is the prettiest I cannot tell, Which of the three, for the life of me, 1 love them all so well. Ho I'll take up the kitten*, the kitteus I love, And we'll lie down together, l?eneath the warm stove." Ho the kittens lie under the stove so warm. While my little darling lies here on my arm. 1 went to the yard, and I saw the old hen, Go clicking about with her chickens ten ; And she clucked, and she s< ra'cbed, and she bris tled away. And what do you think I heard the ben say ? 1 heard her say. --The sun never did shine On anything like to these chickens of mine; You niav bunt the full moon, and the stars if vou please But you never will find ten su?l? chickens a? these. The cat loves her kittens, the ewe loves her lamb, But they do not know what a proud mother I am: For lainl* or for kittens 1 wout part with these. Though the sh? ei? and the cat should ?ro down on their knees My dear downy darlings, my sweet little things. Come, nestle now coziFy tumor my wings " So the hen said. And the chickens sped As fast as they could to their warm feather 1* d; And there let them lie. on their feathers so warm, While my little chick lies here on my arm.
