TOWILLIAM AND ELIZABETH SOMERVILLE WEIR,HIS MOST SEVERE AND KINDLY CRITICS,THIS VOLUME IS LOVINGLY DEDICATED BYTHEIR SON.
PREFACEThe name FLEURS DE LYS has been chosen forthe Canadian Poems in the early portion of thisbook, because the scenes and incidents theydescribe belong to the Monarchial, or Fleur de Lys,period of France in Canada. The royal crest duringthe seventeenth century is depicted upon thecover.Many of these poems have already appeared inthe columns of the Carnival and Jubilee Star, theToronto Week, the University Gazette, and theMontreal Gazette, as well as in the Daily andWeekly Star, and it is the kindly reception whichthey met with that has led the author to publishthem in this more permanent form.Some of the poems were written at twenty, and thelatest at twenty- three, so that the author hopesthe critics will consider this volume rather as a budthan as a flower, and will criticize it with the view toaiding him to avoid faults in the future rather thanto censuring him for errors of the present and past.To Mr. George Murray, of this city, the author isdeeply indebted for encouragement whenencouragement was most needed, and for muchvaluable assistance in the selection and revision ofthese verses for publication.It is hoped that the notes at the end of this book
will throw sufficient light upon the verses to makethem perfectly intelligible to the reader.December, 1st, 1887.

FLEURS DE LYS AND OTHERPOEMS.ODE FOR THE QUEEN'S JUBILEE. 1837-1887.ISailor William is dead. And now  Toll the great bells disconsolate.    Let the maiden have time for tearsEre you set on her gentle brow  England's glittering crown of state.    Heavy burden for eighteen years.Grant the maiden some weeping spaceEre on her youthful brow you place      England's crown.Once her stately head it presses,Fifty years it must rest on her tresses      Till their brownTurns to white beneath King Time's caresses—      Grant her weeping space.II.  Set the crown on the maiden's brow,    And silence the bells disconsolate.  Peal! Ye loud joy-bells, now;    Over city and wold let your echoes reverberate.Peal! for the crowning of smiles and the death of
tears,Peal! for the crowning of hopes and the death offears,Peal! for a Queen who shall rule us for fifty years.The maiden is crowned with her glorious crown,    Heavy with care;Yet it shall never burden her down    Into despair.We will watch over her with our love,    And our loyalty prove.      We will bear, each, his shareOf the worry, grief, and painThat may seek to mar her reign.III.Blow! ye silvery bugles, over the sunny land,  Our Queen has yielded to love.Ring out with merry clangor, O ye bells!Ye mountains! give the laughing bells reply.Hark! how the joyous tumult sinks and swells,  And beats against the sky    In melody!Mark how the billows of the mighty seaToss their white arms in glee,  And race along the strand,Joining their voices with the symphony!  Our Queen has yielded to love.    Blow! silvery bugles blow!      That all may know.IV.
