When the lanes nro white with roses
Little roses, golden-hearted
In tho fragrant, misty twilight.
Two happy lovers parted.
No kisses break the silence,
No word of love or sorrow ,
Hut clasping hands we said. "Good-by!
(lood-by until to-morrow I "
At the open door wo parted,
Where tho honeysuckle covers
Half the iorch with blushing sweetness;
We knew not wo were loera.
Lato sunshine smote my darling,
Round her head a glory making,
As It kissed her dainty dimple".
In mellow laughter waking,
Iter eyes wero dark as panslos,
With 11 dreamy splendor gloulni';
She was fair as white wood Unlets
In sheltered crannies growing.
Still I see the nwect, dim picture
As It echoes back, " To-morrow ; "
Hut mine eyes nre changed with weeping :
I hate tasted love and sorrow.
The little hand that Ihmcred
Within my sudden clasping
Ilefore the night was out
Strong Death himself was grasrlng.
He entered by the iorcli-w ny
That the honeysuckle covers.
And only when my darling died
.1 knc,w that i e wei e lo ers.
It was long ago we pai ted
With a merry, quick leute-t.il.ing,
hen the roses, golden-henrled,
In leafy lanes were waking.
Hut the breath of honeysuckle
Greets mo still with sudden soirow :
It seems to sigh, " Dear Heart, good-by I
We meet again, to-morrow l "
For the Globe.
