S. JOSEPH.


A CLOISTERED garden was the place
     Where Mary grew, God's perfect flower;
One, only one, discerned her grace,
     And visited her bower.

God's choice was his; by love made strong
     To guard the Mother of the King;
No heart, save hers, had e'er a song
     So sweet as his to sing.
