'Twits the night before tho wedding
And th<! hou<o was filled with guests;
Atn-r till tlw pleasant greetings
Quietly the household rests.

Still is sitting by the lire?
?'J'bs tin: bride: who on the morrow
Will inivo left her homo and sire.
With her lintr unbound and falling,
Like a inantl'j totbelloor.
There ?be sits among the treasures,
For the last lime looks them o'er.
One by one she rends each letter,
Then consigns it to the Name;
From its cai-e she takes a picture,
And her white lids close in pain.
For the face smiles out upon her
As of ohl it used to do,
Ere that hitler hour of parting.
When each spoke what was not true.
Trembling lingers slowly ela?p it,
Drop it on the embers red.
Ne'er again will she behold it,
For the lace to her is tlead.
There are violets in the casket,
And a lock of suit dark hair.

As the last faint embers glow.

O'er the portals of I bo moon ;

Dawning brings her hopes new horn.
