CANTO III.
THE TIDINGS.

On Amroom are sunshine and summer to-day;
  And it seems less lone and drear ;
The islanders gather in heaps their hay,
  Their hope for the coming year.

And father and mother and youth and maid,
  All join in the common toil ;
Earnest their work and the words that are said, —
  Mirth flies from so rude a soil.

And ever a shadow yet graver still
  O'er each laborer's face doth pass,
As he sendeth a glance toward yonder hill
  Where, shivers the tufted grass.
