THE MOSS-ROSE.
FROM THE GERMAN OF HELMINE VON CHEZY, GEB. VON KLENKE.

Deep in a dell, 'neath woodland shade,
The green and tender moss was spread,
  A carpet velvet-soft.
Small to the eye indeed, yet still
Its tree-like form was wonderful —
  Branch, bough and leafy tuft.

The low moss saw the wood's green pride,
The blushing rose ; " Such pomp," it sighed,
  " Heaven hath refused me quite.
Here many a light foot treadeth free,
But not an eye doth look on me —
  All turn them to the light ! "
