THE MINISTERING ANGELS.
BY FANNY FORRESTER.
Kotbrv hai Xht bird tluU nettled
-, Lovingly upon tiy breast,
Abided up hi little pinion,
And in darkaetB gone te rest f -C
Ksj.th gave b dart and dreary,
- But tb kt m b not there ;
Bear'gt thou not its gentle vhuper.
Floating on the ambient air ? .
It fe near ftipe, gwtfe mother.
Near tbw at the evening hoar;
Its soft kiss is in the ephyr,
It looks op from every flower.
And, whea night's dark ebadow fleeting,
- Low thou bendeet thee in prayer,
, , And thy heart feels nearest heaven.
Then thy angel babe ia there I
XaideBv baa fhy noble brotfaerr
On whose manly form thine eye
' - Lored full off in pride to linger,
On wboee heart thou coultTst rely,
Thoogh all other hearts deceived thee.
All proved hollow, earth grew drear,
Whose protection, ever o'er thee,
Bid the from the cold world's sac
Baa he left thee here to straggle,
AH maided on thy way ?
S ay, he still can guide and guard thee.
Still thy filtering steps can stay ;
Brill, when dangers borer o'er thee,
, He than danger is more near ;
When f n grief thon'st none to- pay.
He, the sainted, marks each tear.
Lover, is the light extinguished
Of the gem, that, is thy heart
Hidden deeply, to thy being
AH its snnfthine could impart?
Look above ! 'tis burning brighter
Than the very stars of heaven ; -And
to light thy dangerous pathway.
All its new found glory's giren.
Wfth the sons of earth commingling,.
Thou the lored one may'st forget r
Bright eyes flashing, Ucascs waving,
May have power to win thee yet ;
But e'en then that guardian itpirit
Off will whisper in thine ear,
And in silence, and at midnight,
Thorn wilt know she hovers near.
Orphan, though most sorely stricken;
Of the mourners thronging earth,
Clouds half veil thy brighter sunshine.
Sadness mingles with thy mirth. .
Yet, although that gentle bosom,
Which has pillowed oft thy head,
Kow is cold, thy mother's spirit
Cannot rest among the dead.
8 till her watchful eye hi o'er thee
Through the day, and still at night
. Hers the eye that guards thy slumber
, Making thy young dream so bright.
Oh 1 the friend, the friends we're cherished,
How we weep to see them die 1
All unthinking they're the angels
That will guide us to the sky I
