. The language of flowers: or, Floral emblems of thoughts, feelings, and sentiments ... Flower language. A ROSE LEAF. " Thus thou, sweet Rose-bud, young and gay, Shall beauteous blaze upon the day, And bless the parent's evening ray, That watched thy early morning." A ROSE LEAF.—I am never importunate. At Amadan, there was a school of philosophers, whose statutes prescribed that, "the Academicians should think much, write little, and speak as little as possible." Dr. Zeb, famous throughout the East, learnt that there was a vacancy in the academy, and hastened to seek it, but, unfortunately, arrived too late. The members were extremely sorry. They had just accorded to influence that which was due to merit. The president, not knowing how to express a refusal which caused the assembly to blush with shame, had a cup brought to him, which he filled so full of water that one drop more would have made it run over the brim. The learned can- didate understood by this that they had not now room for him. He was withdrawing,' sadly disappointed, when he saw a Rose Leaf at his feet. On this his courage revived. He took up the leaf and placed it so lightly upon the surface of the water in the cup, that not a single drop was displaced. At this display of his ingenuity, the whole assembly clapped their hands, and the doctor was received, by acclamation, among the number of the silent Academicians. 177.
