O, y, there's nmsio in the tunes Of those w li ve so well, A DK-kxly to low anJ sweit Tlmt wor.Is Would fail to tell Of all the bright glad hoes which throng Around our 8irit's thrvu. While listening to words of those Whose thouglits chime with our own. There's music In the words of one Who never strives to fill )ur youthful hearts wi'h shadows vague, Which send a chilling ihrill Along the heart strings which were tuned To breathe a sweet refrain ; Culess a breath of coldness breaks A single chord in twain. A single cord, though e'er so frail, When broken, throws along The other strings a discord strange. Which mars the swelling song. Then give us words from those who ne'er Are breathing of unrest Who bid us hope while life is young. The future may be blest. When young hearts which are bounding now With pulses wild and free White barques with snowy sails unfurl'd Dance o'er life's fitful sea Bright eyes which never saw the clouds Enfold youth's azure sky, And lips which never yet have learned To breathe a heartfelt sigh When such an one shall droop beneath The shadows which mu;t fall At times around each human heart. Dark as an ebon pall. Oh, how will words of hope and trust Fall on the listening ear. If breathed by those who have been true By those the heart holds dear. A stranger voice might breathe same In accents just as kind. And strive to lift the weight of woe From the deaponding mind ; But vain are all the words which come From those we have not known, Tho' fraught with power, the longing heart Their magic will not t- For only from the lips we love May fall those soothing words, Which send a joyous thrill along The spirit's tivmbling chords; And light the fires of faith and hope Which had grown fuint and low. Their brightness fio I. their glory dira'J By bitter tears of woe. There's music in the voice we love ; And when those too are gone Which made our lives so fraught with joy, The light of life has flown ; Then while the vasa mortality S .a!I hul 1 our spirits here, May words from those we love be given, Id'e 's weary paths to cheer. ; ; ' ; LIBBIE S.
