Better far than cold or jewels, Iu the right of grief and pain, Is the thauzkt through joy or sorrow. Oue friend will still remain. Many friends may gather 'round us In the days uf wealth and power; But i'as. how few the number Iii udrersiLj's dink kour. And if ever o'er our pathway Shine prosjientys bright sun, Sweetly comes to us the kuow'edge, We some noble heart have won. Yet Unit loved one may forsake uj For another ln!d more dear. Leaving only ud, sweet memories All our life lu cheer. And the wealth that once wi.s ours Yanisb'd with the suintuei's Oleum; Wh le the jeais pass so swiMy, Biiiijf life's autumn fraught with gloom When lore's iiakMioiiatt dreams are o'er, And our outh fo ever fled. With ihe hopes that made us gladsome, Like spring violets crushed and dead. Through the clouds that daikly lower, 16 this weaiy notld we roam, F.tithul friunsuip, like Hie Iris, Tells of brighter days to come. Agnes Clifton. Select Ifccllanj.
