Torn Hood to His Wife. -

But all they-ve lost in light, love,
Was what they gave to miune.
But still thse url. reflect, tore,

And tinted ll uany dlowers !
Those la.skm were brown to ree, love,
That now are turned t" gray,
But the years wore spent with we, love,
That stole their hue away.
Thy locks no longer rhare, lore,
The gulden glow of nom,
but I-ve seen the warmt 1..k f.,ir, my lore,

That. aunw wog sath nr.-l fair, uve,
That lnoke are sbaded nnw,

That spoiled a bunny brow.
