Not illustrated. 1867 edition. Excerpt: ...us not with sadness. MINNIE.. Winsome Minnie, blithesome Minnie, Glowing sunbeam, ray of light! How we wept when kindred Angels Bore our darling from our sight. Yet, oft as the morning breaketh, While we greet the golden dawn, Nestling to our hearts, she cometh With soft whispers, --petted fawn. And as twilight flings its shadows O'er our little clust'ring band, Then again we hear her music; Clasp the little dimpled hand. And we're waiting, trustful waiting, For the hour so fraught with bliss, When her radiant spirit beauty Greets us in its loveliness. THE LAME GIEL.

Childless--through the lengthening shadows, Childless--down the dreary slope, Childless--0, the void it telleth, Childless--knell of highest hope." Nay! 0; nay! a bright form glideth, Ever radiant, by your side: Nay! 0, nay! the life abideth, Springing from love's living tide; Only gone to nobler teachers, Only gone to a fitter clime; Waiting to rehearse their glories When the true life bursts...show more
