Pupil of Couture. Professor of McMicken Art School. (From the Atlantic Monthly for July 1). COUNSEL. Come, watch with me the dead, cold-carven face,/ Fair-lidded and quite dumb,/ All shadow-girded in a dim, still place;/ Nay, follow me, and come. Why pause* Her lips can say no suppliant word,/ Nor any bitter thing;/ She lieth silently, poor wearied bird,/ With wearied folded wing. Passionate sorrow or stern scorn alike/ Were nothingness to her;/ Though you should fondly kiss or cruelly strike,/ She will not breathe or stir. Death's hands, to her bowed spirit having been/ Such rapture of release,/ Are lifted o'er the memory of her sin,/ And softly plead for peace. Sanction their pleading with one sacred kiss,/ And after, while you live,/ Learn how all-perfect a revenge it is/ Utterly to forgive%--Edgar Fawcett. [Pp. 16-17.]
