Leaf lv leaf the roses fail,
Drop ly Irp, the springs run ory ;
One lv one, lievon.l recall,
Summer U-iiuties fade and die;
But the roses Moom ntiin.
And the springs will gusli anew,
In the pleasant April rain,
And the summer's sun and dew.
So in hours of deepest gloom.
When the springs in gladness fail,
And the roses in the bloom.
Droop like maidens w an and pale
We shall find some hope that "lies
Like a silent gem apart.
Hidden far from careless eyes,
In the garden of the heart.
Some sweet hope to gladness wed,
That will spring afresh and new;
When grief's winter shall have fled,
Giving place to rain and dew
Some sweet hope that breathes of spring
Through the weary, weary time,
Budding for its blossoming
In the spirits glorious clime.
