UJie Mother Perishing in a Snow
F-IJB .xL < ?
"In tho year 1821, a Mrs. Blake pol
ished in a suow-storm in the night-time,
?while traveling over a spuroftho Groeu
Mountains in Vermont. She had an
infant with her, which was found alive
and well in the morning, being carefully
wrapped in the mother's clothing."
Tho cold -winds?swept tho 'mountain's
And pnthloss-^-was tho dreary wild,
Ahd, 'inid. tlie cheorU'ss hours of night,
A mother wander'd?with her child :
As through the drifting snow she press'd,
Tho babe?was sleeping?on her breast.
And colder still tho winds did blow,
' And darker hours of night came on,
Aud deeper grew the drifting snow.
Her limbs?wore cbill'd, her strength
"Oh, God I" sho oried, in acconts wild,
"If I must perish, save my child 1"
She stripp'd hor mantle from her breast,
And bared her bosom to the storm,
And round tho child?she wrapp'd the vest?
And smiled?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?'ntath a snowy vail;
Tho frost .ofdenth?was in l-cr eye,
fer cheek was cold, and hoard, and pale;
Ie moved the robe from off the child,
The babe look'd up?and sweedy smiled !
