A Book of Poems.
To-day I found in a drawer,
Where 1 had not looked for years, ?
A volume of little poems;
And my eyes grew blind with tears
As I turned the yellow pages
And found some daisies dead.
That mniked the last sweet poem
My darling ever toad.
How well I can remember,
That tiAornoon in May,
We saw the white sailed vessels
(Jo sailing down the bay ;
And our ships went sailing outward
As far as ships could ho
Bound for the far off island
in loves'8 enchanted sea.
She read me this quaint, sweet poem,
Her little hand in mine,
J can hear the sobbingocenu
And see the blue waves shine?
And like tome dream of sorrow
The years have passed away,
And 1 am by her sah- again,
This afternoon in May.
I look in her eyes ami listen
To* her voice so soft and sweet,
As her lips this strange, sweet fancy
Of the pout's hi Ulli repeat,
And think that love is a poem,
So old and yet so new,
The sweeter! of all sweet poems
To those wtio make it true.
Ah! bul-the poem ended!
The beautiful dream is dorn.-!
The fairest flowers are the frailest
Of all flowers under the sun.
My hook of life has its poems.
And the swcetcst.pocin there
Is the memory ol' my darling
Sato where the angels are.
