Divided lives 1 The words unfold
A hjddCii store of silent pain,
Wij were its one in days of old :
Divided now, estranged and cold,
How- caii we meet again?
The days go on; tho busy race
Ol life and duty must be run.
We pass the olden meeting-place,
Or look eacli oilier in the face,
And wish the past undone.
Divided lives! And, day by day,
More hard to hear the loss appears;
Too oil the b>ved one drifts away.
A tar from us. and hope's bright ray
Is quenched in lonely tears.
The pusl i? dead that was so sweet.
Lu.Mj is the love we culled our own;
Our lit. has reached It3 noon day heat,
The road Is rouyh for weary feet,
Ai.d yet wc walk alone.
No firl.ure lime can.e'er fulfill
The nroinjscs of those early days,
< >ur W'l'rk'nehicves success, but still
The old wound throbs, and ever will?
Divided lives, divided ways!
A Woman's Roason.
Why should I '?lake my happy youth,
My days of spring,
i'poti a man's unle.-l.od truth
And prollercd ring?
5 oti praiso me for my brown hair,
My eyes of brown hue;
Hut change o'ertakes the fairest fair,
Then, what of you?
When all you praise has suffered wrong
And 1 am old,
Will U>ve that did to youth belong
My aye unfold?
Since ymi bin. prize my smlllm*ej'os
And blushing check,
Then breathe no more your lender highs,
The tllhtgs you seek
Are but the shadows of a shade,
Will vanish last ?
Mirage, of mists of morning made,
Tliut cannot last.
