them into his trunk. He sat down on the lid to close it and
then locked it slowly-as slowly as if he were burying some-
thing-as he was. He was burying four lost years.
      WINDS OF THE SOUTHERN SEA
                  GLENN W. DRESBACH
                           I.
               Winds of the southern sea,
                 Sweet with a rare perfume,
               Breathe o'er our northern leas
                 And soothe their withered bloom.
               Prince of the hearts found true,
                 With that sweet voice of thine,
               o linger, while I woo,
                 Near this rare love of mine.
                           II.
               Then the holly of Christmas time
                 Will be sweet as the rose of June,
               And lips will move in rhyme?
                 With the heartstrings all in tune.
               Then softly breathe and blow,
                 o winds of the southern sea,
               Hide in the northern mistletoe,
                 And win my love with me.
