To night a child with earnest eyes
Climbed up upon my knee;
And looking in her fuco I saw
What no one clso could boo.
I saw an orchard pnth, o'erhung
With blossoms pink and Bwcct,
And dew, like diamond drops upon
The clover at our feet.
I snw a maiden, sunny haired,
AYith lips of saucy grace,
And just such eyes as looked in mine
From out tho child's pure face.
I heard tho cricket chirp.and call
Its mate among tho grass,
And saw the moonlight OAcr all,
And heard the breezes pass.
A voico awoke mo from tho spoil?
A voico I used to know,
Yet not the sumo sweet voice of old?
So tender and so low.]
I lifted up my dreamful eyes
Half thinking I should seo
The same sweet face, whose girlish graoo
Wns very dear to me.
I saw?oh, not the faco I knew
So long and long ago,
Tut, looking through it, I could seo
The face 1 used to know !
The years had wrought their changes there,
And in her heart I knew,
"Were changes greater, for she vowed
To love mo, and be true.
Ah. well ! The world is false at best.
Is cold and full of chance,
And hearts that promise much to day,
To morrow may estrange.
This womnn with her wordly face,
Y?'ns nothing now to me.
