19 33 The Abbot Circle Parting Hymn Father, I know that all my life Is portioned out for me; The changes that are sure to come : I do not fear to see; : But I ask Thee for a present mind Intent on pleasing Thee. I ask Thee for a thoughtful love Through constant watching wise, To meet the glad with joyful smiles, : And to wipe the weeping eyes; : And a heart at leisure from itself, To sooth and sympathize. Wherever in the world I am, In whatso ' er estate, I have a fellowship of hearts : To keep and Cultivate; : And a work of lowly love to do For the Lord on whom I wait. So I ask Thee for the daily strength To none that ask denied, And a mind to blend with outward life : While keeping at Thy side; : Content to fill a little space If Thou be glorified. H9

The Abbot Circle 1933 Her Majesty The Queen Once I had the unforgettable experience of seeing a thrilling winter ' s night skv from the rocks of a wave-kissed shore. At first there was no hope of a moon pene- trating the thick, billowy, silver and grey-lined clouds that seemed hesitantly to threaten to kiss their shadows, which were making the almost-too-peaceful watei darker still. From the edging of these clouds we knew that there was a moon wait- ing behind them for an opportunitv to burst forth in her quiescent glorv. for the semi-halos trimming their fleecv vet compact masses shone with a pellucid, golden light. W e seemed to be watching one of natures quiet struggles, and the sea too appeared to be watching, reflecting faithfully, yet as if it were a dark mirror, the slow changes of the skv. For now the horizon grew darker, while the center of the celestial arc. almost directly over us. grew ever more shining while its gorgeous nebular mass seemed to part as if to make way for a queen. And a queen the moon was indeed, when she finallv presented her entire face to us. after having coquetted in a graceful and statelv manner from behind her screen. The now double rank of clouds receded about two steps more, leaving Her splendid, golden Majesty scintillating and bowing in a blue-black hall that set off her beautv to perfection. She seemed peacefullv and regallv to accept her triumph over the cruel clouds that had been depriving her of her just admiration, and to reward our waiting for her with even more splendor than it is her wont to bestow upon us. And while she was thus presiding over her court, we left her and her approaching shadowy host, before we should witness the sad yet beautiful eclipse of her smiling countenance. Catharine S. Campbell The Symphony A crash, and when its echoes died, a pause. A clear, high note rang through the quiet hall. And then a lilting harmony was heard. The sound grew greater, and new notes now filled The crowded hall of breathless listeners. A piquant, haunting melody made all Feel strongly, to the very depths of them. That life has mingled joys and sorrows too. The symphonv went on. It grew in tone And suddenly it stopped. A second ' s still. Then came applause, and then the spell was lost. Mary Elizabeth Birnham 88
