Earth Is the home of time; [leaven of ete
When earth Is sleeping on the breast of
love to roam;
When not a footstep save my own
Falls in the ear,
I love to wander in the silent vale,
beside the babbling brook, and gaze
Upon the broad bright vault above
And mark the change; that tell
Of Coming day
In the gray tints of morn I love to watch
The starry host, as o'ne by one, they fade
11ke some dissolving scene. Melting from

As morn with roseate floods of light
Illumes the distant eastern sky,

The canopy of night.
The veil that o'er the sleeping, dreaming,
Night flung, that she might weep
'Dew drops. % ith no eyes to see

And in its young rich beauty lay
Fresh from the hands of Him,

Ushering in the day.
In hours like those the heart can hold
