First Love

(A. S.) 1845.

We met--he was a stranger,
His foot was free to roam;
I was a simple maiden,
Who had never left my home.

He was a noble scion
Of the green Highland pine,
To a strange soil transplanted,
Far from his native clime

And well his bearing pleased me,
For I had never seen
Keener eye, or smile more sunlit,
Or more dignity of mien.

His brow was fair and lofty,
Bright was his clustering hair;
I marvelled that to other eyes
He seemed not half so fair

His it was to plead with men,
With "Thus my Lord hath said;"
He stood God's messenger between
The living and the dead

When I heard how earnestly
His pleading message ran,
I said, "Here God has set his seal
To mark a perfect man."

The rapture of a moment
Came suddenly to me;
With softened glance he asked me,
'Could you learn to think of me?'

The star of love shone o'er us,
His arm was round me thrown
And he fondly said he loved me
And loved but me alone

I was but a simple maiden
Village born and village bred
And when this crown of gladness
Dropped down upon my head

A simple maiden's feelings
That moment sprang awake
I wished myself rich, noble
And lovely for his sake

Ah, love akin to sorrow
Ah, ecstasy so fleet!
Why is parting made the surer
When the meeting is so sweet?

Quick as the flash of summer
Came bliss to fade too soon
My poor heart swelled, as ocean
Swells for the lady moon.

I saw him at the altar
Upon a morning fair
The matron and the maiden,
And paranymph were there

There were holy words, and wishes,
And smiles when tears would start
A fair bride stood beside him,
And I--I stood apart.

Then came the parting moment,
After I loved him well;
I stilled my heart's sore beating,
And so I said farewell,

And oh! may no remembrance
Cause him a moment's pain,
But yet, indeed, I loved him,
And I'll never love again.

Children's Song
We little children join to praiseThe Holy Child of endless days.The Lord of glory undefiledWas once like us a little child.Chorus.-- "Sweetly, sweetly, sweetly singing, Let us praise him, praise him, praise him, bringing Happy voices, voices, voices ringing Like the songs of the angels round the throne." He hears the ravens when they call,He sees the little sparrows fall,He heard the little children singHosanna to the Saviour King.

To My Valentine
1844.Adieu! Adieu! may angels guard thee, Hovering near thee night and day,For all thy good deeds God reward thee, The rest forgive and blot away.May no gift nor grace be missing, May He all on thee confer,And add a heartfelt prayer and blessing From the distant wanderer.O'er the trackless, foaming ocean, In weal or woe, ever shall beMingled in my heart's devotion Many a prayer for thine and thee.What tho' across thy memory never Shall flit my once familiar name,Hallowed by distance, thine for ever, Memory shall conjure up again.All thy follies ever
