Forget not - regret not Tlie joys that have ried, Though sweeter aiui flecter rl lian tresb odors shed Fron the jessarnin's cup, Or the briglit chalice hid F rom ihe gazeof the sun 'Neath the violel's lid. Forget not - regret not; Hope ever should burn The incensé of love Jn her funeral urn, ïShedding glory end iiglit O'er tlie gems of the past, B)' time on the altar Of meinory cast. Forget not - ipgret not; Wlty should we regret, Wliile otie star remnins, That moiher has ct? And though uil may have faded, Others brightcr by far Through the glooin may arise Than the once worship'd star. Forget not - rcgrelnot; Life's lesson should be Likc the stars that are hung ■ O'er the ümitless een, A guide to our path, Brigiit links of the chain, To lead us end bind us To virtue agoin.
