Tour paili lies over tlie hillside, Out in tlie rain and sleet, - Out ftl the world'a wide turmoil, Wlipre bustle and business meet, Au 1 mine by the noiseless fireside, When the fanciful rmbers glow, With a changeful, üfe-like roution - Kis i ine beibre you go. My quiet way will be haunted With voices none olhers can see, Glances more precious than diamonds- Smlles i'ull of meaning to me ; The sound of a welcome footstep - A whisper tlirillinsly low ; Ah ! thought will clasp meinory closely - Kiss me before you go. For this world liath a thousand mischances, And one of these chances may fall, That us two ne'er again by ihe firelight Make one shadow iijion the wall ; Tben. vet once ere the pai ting - A!as ! liiat t must be so !- Leave me a fond benediction - Kiss me before you go !
