rvi: THROWN TIIK BOWL 'ASIDE.
BV CHARI.'fs K. AMKs?
I've thrown the howl aside.
. For me no more shall flow ' '
. Its ruddy stream or sparklino tide,
How bright soe'er it "low;
I've seen extending .wide
Its devastating sway,'
Seen reason yield its power to guide,
I've cast the bowl away!
O ne'er tempt me again
To drain the rtip of sin;
For ruin dire, disease and pain,
Taint all that foams within;
Neglected duties rise
In fearful, sad array, , .'
Up to its brim. I will be wise,- ,
I've cast the bowl away ! '
I've seen the pride of all
The wise, the good, the great
Like summer leaves, all timeless fall,
And veil their high estate;
I've seen fair woman give
Her every charm away,
Embrace the demon vile, and live!
I've cast the bowl away!'
My days of revelry
O gladly I give up;
They're but the masks of misery,
Which still lurk in the cup;
While indolence and want
And poverty display
Themselves in every drunkard's haunt,-
I've cast the bowl away!
A drunkard's gloomy grave
Shall ne'er be made for me;
O rather let the rushing wave .
Engulf me in the sea!
And may it be my lot
To dio 'neath reason's ray !
Rcmember'd by my friends or not,
I've cast the bowl away!
My path henceforth is plain,.
In honesty to live
To shun intemperance and its train,
ISy industry to thrive;
No duty to lorget,
And live to bless the day
When I was led without regret,
To cast the bowl away!
