Idly straying through the churchyard.
Listless, sad. with footsteps slow,
While the throstles sweet are singing
And the roses are in blow.—
From the minister'» open window«
Comes the organ's measured roll,
And the priest's low benediction
Falls as music on my soull
Well known name an eptaph.
Seem I like some ancent .pilgrim
Leaning trembling on his staff.
Memories like ocean's surges
Bring again Youth's cloudless sky
When I learned of you and loved you
With a love that will not die,
In the misty haze around me.
I behold your angel form
Taking shape, an op'nlng Hly.
Ere the onset of the storm.
It 1» you, my own beloved.
Coming up the gravelled way
Garlended with orange-blossoms
As upon your bridal day,
Ah, you reach your hands to welcome
In the old familiar way,
While across your cheeks of beauty
Smiles Ike summer-sunbeams play;
Though you are a glory-maiden,
You are her I fondly kissed
When the night was on the mountains
And the vales were lost In mist,
Though you keep your form of beauty.
Keep your wealth of golden hair.
And your saintly brow's unfurrowed
By the heavy hand of care,
I am old: my limbs are shrunken
By the melancholy years;
And my cheeks are pale and hollowed;
And my eyes are filled with tears,
From your holy place In heaven
Have you ever called my name?
Know you not I have been faithful
Whatsoever hath been my blame?
Do you think of those blest evenings
When we wandered by the mill.
And the stars were full of music
Though the winds and birds were still,
Vain are all my wishes, darling,
I am with grave doubts oppressed;
But you of the many angels
Are the holiest and best;
Mists and storm clouds are around me;
Unblest winds are In the tree;
eath unites, my spirit
be like the raging sea.
