FOR HER.
In memory of Miss J. C. Rock, who
paased away in the charm of her youth
and beauty.
It seemed life's roses were for her
And gave to her their fragrance sweet,
And every balmy wind that blew
Scattered their incensc at her feet.
The sunny side was hers to take,
But calmly meeting shade, or light,
Her amile dispelled impending gloom
And made the hours with gladness
bright.
Life offered her ita nectaraweet,
Distillcd from vintagefresh and pure,
Life holda for her a memory deep
Fraught with Love's blessing to
endure. -
Even the music of the spheres
Had reached her, and left glorious
dreams;
Then angels came and bore her hence
To where the light of Heaven gleams.
For U8, who wait and watch on here
Her radiance shines-though from afar;
While before her spreada the Glittering
Strand
And above her shines the Morning Star.
