The sportsman bold and the earnest student Talk softly of -what ? Porhaps the weather ; Perhaps- nö matter ; whatever the subject, It eeitainly bringe them closer together. It causes their words to be softly spoken, With many a lingering pause between, The while the shaclows chase the sunbeams Over the mosses, gray and green. lilu.-lics are needful to its discussion, AihI soit sly glaucea from downcast eyes, In whose blu'e depths are lying hidden Loving gladness and aweet surprise.
