In mid-ocean lone and drew;
Worn by the wpd w&ves ceaseless shdet,
That round tlie base fts surges roar
Yet there the" sca,moss still 'will cling
Some flower will lind a deft to fprins,
And breathe e'en there, a sweet perfume
Tor me, life ' flowers no more will bloom.
V'MUiE OWN.
,lThou art mine own, my best belovii,
Thou art indeed mine, own ;
What though forever from my heart ,
Its carlj' joys have flown 1 . t,
A bird is'singing sweeter far ' ,
Than tho)e which mailo their nest,
Uo'fore I. fey mnrnlng ray was pale, ;
In my uiirullled bxeabtt . .
Once all Was Wight and all Was fair
Each "merry fount of June
Played like a seraph lute for ran
A soft, 'celestial tune.
Tho blossoms and the dewy leave?, f ,
That stopped W kiss the flowers,
Shed perfume round the dancing fuet
Of boyhood's fiolick hours.
. Now iu the steams and in the bud j
No tones nor odors dwell, . .
For Fancy, like a changeful nympy, :
Hassigh'd a tad farewell.
But thou to me art music, love,
And the enamored air '
Is rife with sweetness, when I feci

Mine own ! Within those charmed words
What fond endearment lies! :
Lun-d by the spell, what lovely scenes '
Along the future rise !
For age will wear more brilliant plumes
Than youth's gay season down,
Fince thou art now, in very truth,,
My beuutiful, mine own !"
