SONG OF MEMORIS.
Why should we care
For little love trinkets and tresse3 of hair;
Over sad memories sighing along
When May time is music and life is a song
When the winds blow the blooms through the.au
Why should wo care.
Why should we care
For the grace of a dream, when all dreams fair
Over dead alters all sighing to stand
With shadowy forms in a shadowy land;
Oh breath of the blooms in the rain spiukled air
Why should we care.
Why should we care
Is memory a'star in the night of dispair
Life is so sweet to go sighing aloug
When the throats of the wild birds are thrilling
with song.
Blow blooms through the suushiuing, rain
sweetened air.
Why should we care. F. Stanton.
