To-morrow and to-morrow came,
Yet cheering Hope would ever smile, And loved my fancy to beguile,
| Pointing far off to visions dim,
Yet wordy wise e'en then was I,
Next came strange dreams of chivalry, | Longing for one responsive sigh,
Through coral lips, on breath of balm,
Playfully mingling in the light;
|| Where is she now? Where all must beA sort of music to the sight,
Sunk in the grave's obscurity! Shedding a visual harmony
| Yet never, never slumber'd there On the beholder's raptured eye.
A mind more pure-a form more fair.
Had it an empire been, I'd sought
To have fulfillid the mighty task. A living light to man they're given;
It is not every fair-one whose They are of earth, yet breathe of heaven, Proud soul is satisfied so soon; Flinging around celestial gleams,
Who lost the world for woman's smile, Such as fond lovers see in dreams;
Deem'd not all valueless the boon. But unlike rays of solar light,
Then, maiden, take this letter'd gem, Which, congregated, scorch the sight.
Meet parting present-many a spot No, placidly our eye surveys
Boasts rarer gifts, but few so fair The galaxy of beauty's blaze;
As that which says, “ Forget me not!” But, when the one we look upon,
" Forget me not!” enchanting sound ! Entranced we feel the rest are gone!
Affection's motto, Hope's last ray: The world is vacant-all is space,
This seals the parting lovers' vows, Except that magic lovely face,
That lights him as he speeds away, Which, like the moon along the sky,
The soldier in the tented field, Moves peerless in the mental eye;
The sailor on the briny wave, And we gaze on it till we feel
Forgets bis danger, as his eye Our reason drunk, our senses reel.
Rests on the pledge affection gave.
India her golden ore, Brasil
Her much-prized brilliants-many a spot O Beauty! heaven-born queen! thy snowy |
Boasts rarer gifts, but few so fair hands
As that which says, “ Forget me not!” Hold the round earth in viewless magic |
La pensée, Memory's own fair fluwer, bands:
As meaner flowers, must fade and die; From burning climes where riper graces But, like the dying Christian, finds flame,
In death an immortality. To shores where cliffs of ice resound thy
'Mong all that grace the mead or grove, name;
Give me of that to weave my wreath ;
Boasts rarer gifts, but few so fair
As that which says, “ Forget me not!” EPITAPH,
Then, maiden, if thy youthful heart
Has ever known what 'tis to griere
For one lov'd form far, far away,
This little, little gift receive! That wandered o'er her lovely face,
That dimpled cheek, that laughing eye, And from her pensive eye of blue
A soul by love unsway'd would prove, Was magic in the glance wbich flew.
Did not at times th' unconscious sigh
Of artless nature tell of love. Her hair, of soft and gloomy shade,
"Tis friendship's off'ring; haply some In rich luxuriance curling stray'd;
May offer richer-many a spot But when she spoke, or when she song,
Boasts rarer gists, but few so fair Enchantment on her accents hung.
As that which says, “ Forget me not!”
