ONE YEAR AGO
In feeling I was but a child,
WIhen tirst w in t--nln year ago
As free atid guileless as the bird.
That roams the drenmy woodland through.
My heart. was all a pleasaint world
Of sunbeams dewed with April tears
Life't brightest page was turned to me,
And naught. I read of doubts or fears.
We .met,wo loved-one year Pgo,
Beneath the stars of sunitnur skies
Alas I I knew not then, as now,
J he darkness of life's mysteries,
YouI took my hand -one year ago
Bentiats I lie nzue dotne above,
And gazing on-the stars you told
The treibIng-tory of youy love..
I gave to you-one year ago
The only Jqw.el that was mine;
My heort look off her lonely crown,
And all 'ir riches gave to thino.
You loved o too, when first we met,
Your'lendet' kisses told me so,
How changed you are from what, you wore
In life hud love-one year abo I
With mooking words and eold neglect,
My truth and passidn are repaid,
And of a soul once fresh wit i love
A dreary desert you bave made.
Why did you fill my youthful life
With such wild dreams of hope and bliss?
Why did you say you loved me then,
If it were all to tnd In this ?
You robbed me of my faith and trust,
In all life's beauty-love and truth;
You left me nothing-notling save
A hopeless, blighted, dreamless youth.
St.rike if yo. will and let the stroko
lie heavy as my weight of woe :
I shall not: shrink, my heart, is cold,
't'is broken since one year ago.

as esseltial to your release from your

to remind yon that men in your posi

who capouso yor<cause, and you.may
