Tears, idle tears, I know not what they mean,

Tears from the

(A Latin poem by THOMAS OF CELANO (a Neapolitan village), about A. D. 1250. Perhaps no poem has been more frequently translated. A German collector published eighty-seven versions in Gerinan. Dr. Coles, of Newark, N. J., has made thirteen. Seven are given in the "Seven Great Hymns of the Medixval Church," Randolph & Co., N. Y. The version here given preserves the measure of the original.)

DIES IRE, DIES ILLA, dies tribulationis et angustia, dies ca.

THAT DAY, A DAY OF WRATH, a day of trouble and distress, a lamitatis et miserie, dies tenebraron el caliginis, dies nebula et duy of wasteness and desolation, a day of darkness and gloom. hurbinis dies tube et clangoris super civitatis inunitas, et super

ness, a day of clouds and thick darkness, a day of the trumpet angulos acelsos ! - Sophonias i. 15. 16.

and aların aganst the fenced cities, and against the high lowers ! - Zephaniah i. 15. 16.
