A PSALM OF LIFE.--Longfellow.
“Be ap and doing.”
“Life is but an empty dream !”
And things are not what they seem.
And the grave is not its goal ;3
Was not spoken of the soul.
Is our destined 4 end or way;
Finds us further than to-day!
And our hearts, though stout and brave,
Funeral marches to the grave.
Numbers, verses. 3 Goal, end, aim. 3 See Genesis iii. 19. “For dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return." tined, appointed. 5 Fleeting, passing quickly away. Muffled drums, drums covered with crape to deaden the sound; used at so'diers' funerals.
