FLORENCE M. HAINES sends the following
  answer to Charade in July Atalanta : —
Ah !  word that’s born amidst our blinding tears,1
The child of broken hopes and crushing fears,2
And vain attempts to gauge the coming years,3
That echoes mournfully since Adam fell,4
Till kindly Death at last shall break its spell5
In Heaven the Angels never say—Farewell.6
