SWEETHEART ASD WIFE.
If sweethearts were sweethearts always,
Whether as maid or wife.
No drop would be half so pleasant,
In the mingled draft of life.
But the sweetheart 1ms smiles and blushes
When the wile has fiownsand sigh",
And the w ife's have a wrathful glitter
For the glow of the sweetheart's eye-s.
If lovers were lovers always,
The same to s-Aietbeart and wife,
Who would ch mge for a future of FXlcn
The joys of this checkered iifr
But husbands grow grave am silent,
And care on the anxious brow
Oft replace the sunsh.ne that perislnd
With the wntds of the marriage vow

In love's u nine i-sui"' i peace:
