. IN LOVINO MEMORY OF""'v
MRS IDA WICKER MURPHY!
An only idolized child, a faithful
loving wife, and a fond mother.
For ono year she hos stood fuce to
face with death knowing her malady
was incurable, but uudhrneath her
were the everlasting arms, "He
giveth his beloved sleep."
Smooth the braids of ber silken hair
On hez queoniy brow with touderest caro;
Gather ber robe io a final fold
Around the form that will not grow old.
Lay on her bosom pure as snow,
Tho fairest, sweetest Howers that bloom;
Kim her and leave her, our hearts delight,
Io quiet peace, Ida sleeps to-night
A shadowy gleam of lifo light liea
Around tho lids of her slumberous eyes ;
Tfer lipB are closnd ns in fond dolny
Of tho loving words sho wished to Bay :
Bat ber gontle heart forgot to beat,
And from dninty hoad to dainty feet,
She is strangely quiet, cold, nod wbito.
Tho pain is gone, Ida routs tc night..
Put by her work and her ompty chair,
Fold up the garments she used to wear,
Lot down tho curtains and oloso the door.
She will need the gairish light no more;
For the task assigned her under tho sun
IB finished now, and the gordian won.
Tenderly kiss h?r and put out the light,
And leave her alone, she will steep to
Oh blesHed sloop! that will not break
For tears, nor prayers, nor loves swoot
Oh porfect rest! that knows no pain,
No throb, no thrill of heart or brain.
Oh lifo sublime! beyond our spoeoh
That only tho pure through dying roaoh.
God understands, his ways aro right
Bid his beloved a long good bye.
Weep for tho days that eau como no moro;
For the eunboam flown from our homo and
For the missing step and nameless grace
Of tho tender voico and loving face.
But not for the soul whoso goal ii won,
Whose perfect joy is just begun;
Not for the spirit onrobed in light
And crowned with angola in heaven to.
