Our days are like the ceaseless flow
Of rivers hastening to tlio sen,
Unmarked, yet sure mid swift they go
T join the pat eternity.
And man is like a gallant harqno,
By time's resistless current borne
To that dread ocean, from whoso dark
And untried borders none return.
Of all the myriads that before
Have sono its countless hosts to swell,
Not one has from that voiceless shoro
Co no back, its mysteries to tell;
The stream rolls on but w here are thoso
It bore but yesteid iv? the wept,
The loved. tiieir freight of joy or woes?
Oblivion's wave o'er all has swept!
Our lives are like a vapor dark,
A nnrnia' mit, that skvwnrd borne
Is seen no m re; a meteor spark
One moment Hashing bright, and gone.
The vapor fades, even as we gazo
It melts upon the viewless air;
The transient meteor's dazzling blaze
But makes the gloom it leaves more drear.
Though youth's bright sun with rainbow-liht
.May arch the distant luture o'er,
'Tis earlv slirouded from our sinht
I - manhood's clouds to shine no more.
'MM mournful memories, hopes betrayed,
And vain regrets our days we passed;
Till, in earth's sheltering bosom laid
Forgetfulness is won tit last.
Our lives are like the de?ert bleak,
Wide spread o'er A trie's burning soil;
We wander onward faint and weak,
Harrasscd by want and spent with toil
If w hiles some freshly verdant spot
Amid the at id waste appears,
"Whose loveliness is ne'er lot-got,
How soon 'tis veiled by giiet'and tears!
We strive for what? To win a name
O'er wliich the sands of time will creep
And leave no trao for empty fame
For triumphs, where wc. ought to weep
Like the 'mirage' whose treacherous ray
Jiut mocks the travelers straining eye,
Even Love and I lope, soon pass aw ay,
And leave us thirsting, faint, to die.
Life's spring-time hues are sw eet, but brief,
Their I'Mi.'ii-beautv earlv gone.
And age steals on with autumn leaf
Sad, scentless, desolate- aifd lone ;
If haply when their mates are dead
Some few, pale, fading llowrets wave,
Theiis is the mournful fragrance shed
Fium roses blooming round the grave.
Oh who to linger here, can feel
A wish, condemned with bosom torn,
Beside the shattered wreck to kneel
Of all he loved, and vainly mourn
When, .heir to sorrow from his biith,
To man this bh ssed hope is given
Though doomed to strife, and toil on Earth,
There's rest, and peace, uud joy in
Heaven! j. r. c.
