This is a sweet cottage-door scene, to which the broad branches of a spreading beech give the charm of sylvan character. It is a charming pastoral poem, developed at a glance. It speaks alike to the savage and the civilized, winning its way to the hearts of all by enlisting their finest sympathies. The time is early summer. A doting mother has brought her convalescent child, after a protracted illness, to the refreshing fragrance of a tempered breeze. Her mother, to the right, is engaged in making lace. The grandmother, bedight for market 'neath the old beech tree, is on the point of departure. [P. 1.]
