A crushing among llfo's quivering chords,
As flowers are crushed by Ugh Hog birds.

The blackened scrawl of her destiny.
Tlt an ofi-told tale. One holds bef row,
Thst'li far away, she's forgotton now,
And falsehood is written upon bis brow.
She will come each day to the post-boy freo,
Asking for letters for Mary Lee;
And "never a one," will his aiiswer be,
Till hor'i'eet shall fall to seek the door,
A nd hope In her heart shall dwell no more,
Then the sexton will seal he; sorrows o'er.
