Not illustrated. 1866 edition. Excerpt: ...on summer's crown They deserved to be, --On her beauty shining down, Stars above her sea. Interpraising, child to child, All the summer flowers, --Dancing, wreathed with roses wild, In the summer bowers, --Such had been their bliss before, Earthly summers seven, Spring their spirits upward bore For the eighth in heaven.

"Roses breathe a sweeter breath, "Come from God anew." Lines written Dec. 9 1860, the birth-day of Eddy and Bitty The great sky is as lovely and blue As when first the sun shone through. The great sun is as bright and as new, As when it kindled that lovely hue. But the sunny, sunny boys, The sunshine of our joys, On this their natal day--Oh, why are they away? The great God who works through the sun, In all the years the world has run, In all the things that he has done, Of brighter things or better has made none, But the sunny, sunny boys, The sunshine of our joys, more
