A little precious baby Oaiue to my lioart oue day, Aiul íblded there most lovingly A long, sweet time she lay. Tha littlo fairy flngers O'er my busom softly crept - A faint tlnill ever lingera There, whero her pure clieek slept. Her eyes were dark and beautiful As evening's starry sky, Hsr voice os olear and musical As birds tliat sing on high. Liko lilies gleanied her snowy skin - Like palo gold shone her hair - Like.pearls, lier rosebud lips within, Slione tiny teeth so fair. So fair, so pure, my littl gem That angels carne to see, - And seeitig - bore her home with them, Thoir angel-babe to be. And ever, wlieu cast down apart, In agony I weep, Tlieie tlirills ivithin my tricken hLrt A thought that ne'er shall sloep. That cradled in an angel's arrus - From every sorrow free - A little, bright-wmged, seraph-obild Waits loringly for me. C2T" John A. Welles, Esq., of Detroit, dieit suddenly at Glen Core, L.
