Little Women.

The little grave where her infant sleeps, Is 'neath the chestnut tree; But o'er Tier grave we may not weep, We know not where it may be.

Her empty bed, her idle ball, Will never see her more; No gentle tap, no loving purr Is heard at the parlor door.

Another cat comes after her mice, A cat with a dirty face; But she does not hunt as our darling did. Nor play with her airy grace.

Her stealthy paws tread the very hall Where Snowball used to play. Bat she only spits at the dogs our pet So gallantly drove away.

She is useful and mild, and does her best, But she is not fair to see ; And we cannot give her your place, dear. Nor worship her as we worship thee.

A. S.
