Two little bu 'y ha&.ls patting on the window, Two laughing briglit eyes looking out at me ; Two rosy-red chee-ks dented with a dimple; Mollier-bird is coming ; baby, do you ee 1 Down by the lilac-bush, something white and aztire Saw I in the window as I passed the tree; Well I knew the apron ?nd shoulder-knots of ribbon, All belonged to baby, looking out for me, Talking low and tenderly To myself. as mothers wilt, Spake I softly. 'God in Heaven Keep my darting free from ill. Woildly gear and worldly honors Ask I not for her froni Thee ; But from want and sin and orrow Keep her ever pure and free." Two little waxen hands, Folded soft and silently Two little curtained eyes Looking out no more for me Two little sjiowy cheeks, Dimple-dented neverniore ; Two little trodden shoes, That will never touch the floor ; Shoulder-ribbon softly twistfid, Apron folded, clean and white; These are left me, and these only, - Of the childish presence bright. Thus He sent an answer to my earnest praying, Thus He keeps my darling free from earthly stain, Thus He tolds the pet lamb safe from earthly straying, Cut I miss her sadly by the window pane, Till 1 look aboveit; then.with purer visiĆ³n, Sad, I weep no looger the lilac-bush to pasa, For I nee ber angel, pure, and white, and sinless, Walking with the harpers, by the sea of glass. Two little snowy wings Soflly flinter to and fro, Two tiny childish hands Beckon still to me below ; Two tender angel eyes Wateh me ever earnestly Througli the loop-holes of the stars ; Baby's looking out for me.
