lijio Mother Forfeiting in a Snow
WXaTKaj A* k *l
"In the year 1821, a Mrs. Blake per
ished in a snow-storm iu the night-time,
while traveling over u spur oftho Grceu
Mountains in Vermont. Sho had an
infant with her, which was found alive
and well in the morning, being carefully
wrapped in tho mothor's clothing."
Tho cold winds?swept tho 'mountain'i
And pathless?was the dreary wild,
Ahd, 'inid,.the cheorU'ss hours of night,
A mother wander'd?with her ohild:
As through the drifting snow shepreis'd,
Tho babe?was sleeping?on her breast.
And colder still the winds did blow,
And darker hours of night came on,
And deeper grew the drifting snow:
Her limbs?were cbill'd, her strength
? Oh, God!" sho cried, in acconts wild,
"if I must perish, save my child I"
n t] M [j I U I I & j
She stripp'd her mantle from her breast,
And bared her bosom to the storm,
And round tho child?she wrapp'd the vesty
And Bmiled?to think her babe was warm.
With one cold; kiss?one tear she shed,
And sunk?upon her snowy bed.
At dawn?a traveler passed by,
And saw*her?'ncatb a snowy vail;
Tho frost ofdeath?was in l>cr eye,
[er cheek was cold, and hoard, and pale;
Te moved the robe from off the child,
The babe look'd up?and sweotly smiled !
