Gone in her childleGs purity Out from the oldeu day ; ï adiug away in tlie light so sweet, Where the silvor stars and the sunbearus moet, Over the siler.t way. Oï'r her bosom teuderly The pearl white hands aropressed; Tlio laslies lie on lier checks so thiu - Where the softestblush of tho roso Uath beenShutting the blue of her eyes within Tlie pure lids closed to rest. Over the sweet brow, lovingly Twineth her sunny hair ; Slie was so fragüe that lovo sent down, From bis heaveuly genis, that soft bright crown, To shade her brow with ils waves so brown, Like as the dimplin air. Goue to sleep, with the tender smile Froze on her silent lip By the farewell kisu of hr dewy breath, Jold in the clasp ot tho angel Death - Like the last fair bud of a fading wreath, Whose bloom the white frost nips. Robin- hushed in your downy bed Over the swinging bough - Do you miss her voice from your glad duet, Wlien the dew in the heart of the rose is set, ïill its velvet lips with the essence wet In oriënt crimsou glow 1 Rosebud - under your shady leaf Hid from the suuny day - Do you miss the glance of the eye so bright, Whose blue was heaven in youv timid sight 1 It is beaming now in a world of light, Over the starry way. Hearte - where the darling's head bath laiu, Held by love's shining ray - Do you know tliat the touch of her gentle liand, Dot'h brigliten the harj) iu the uuknown land '! O, the waits lor us wiüi the angel band Over the starry ay.
