    Joy is like restless day; but peace divine
      Like quiet night;
Lead me, O Lord,—till perfect Day shall shine
      Through Peace to Light.
          Per Pacem ad Lucem.

And my fingers wandered idly
  Over the noisy keys.

      And the stars are old,
And the leaves of the Judgment Book unfold.

  But all sang Annie Lawrie.

7545
    The bravest are the tenderest,—
The loving are the daring.
          The Song of the Camp.
7546
    Shelved round us lie
The mummied authors.
          The Poet’s Journal. Third Evening.
