THE TRANCE.
“Near Baltimore, a child, supposed to be dead
was placed in a coffin, and the lid was about to
close upon it forever, when U awoke and called
for it* mother.”—Maeonic Recorder.
“ How like those forms he looks •
That sit in stony whiteness over tombs,
Memo.'uis of their cold inhabitants ”—
‘ Barry Cornwall.
Mourners were gathering round a bier, on
which
A babe, clad in the snowy vesture of the tomb,
Reposed. A gorgeous pall the coffin veiled,
And the bare lid disclosed a face as stainless
As marble beautiful. With hurried step
And wildly flowing locks, the mother came.
And in the broken tones of grief thus spoke?
“ Make way, unfeeling crowd!
I wish to gaze upon the early dead.
Before ve bear him to his narrow bed;
Fold back the shroud
The wind shall kiss his pallid ctffeek once more,
Its touch perchance the life flush will restore.
“Though pale that face,
The wonted smile of joy it yet retains—
Too much of beauty for the grave remains
To hide in its embrace:
He sleeps as calmly in that box inclosed
As if within his cradle he reposed.
“ Look on the sleeper now!
Thickly the cold drops on his forehead stand,
A ro*e bud blushes in his little hand,
Torn from the parent bough:
Though death hath made my bud of promise cold.
Where angels dwell, the leaves will soon unfold.
“Speeding thy raven wing.
Why blast the lovely long before their prime.
Ere they have felt the wasting touch of Time,
Pale shadowy king!
Why rob the casket of its precious gem.
And pluck the young flower from its tender stem?
“ Bilght with thy breath
The aged pilgrim in this vale of tears.
Whose form is bending with the weight of years,
Insatiate tyrant death!
Snatch not the infant from its mother’s breast,
Lifeless and cold beneath the sod to rest!
“ But I am childless left;
The staff on which I hoped to lean is gone;
Through life alone I now shall journey on
Of all I loved bereft;
One spirit more hath left the earth to dwell
With kindred souls:—My stricken flower fare
well!’,
“Hah! ‘Mother,’he faintly cries!
Perchance it was a vagary of the brain—
it cannot be! those pale lips move again,
And open are his eyes;—
W ith the life flush his cheek is growing red!
Mr eup of joy is full—he is not dead ”
AVON BARD.
