Love And Hope


At morn, beside yon summer sea,
Young Hope and Love reclined;
But scarce had noon-tide come, when he
Into his bark leapt smilingly,
And left poor Hope behind.

"I go," said Love, "to sail awhile
"Across this sunny main;"
And then so sweet, his parting smile,
That Hope, who never dreamt of guile,
Believed he'd come again.

She lingered there till evening's beam
Along the waters lay;
And o'er the sands, in thoughtful dream,
Oft traced his name, which still the stream
As often washed away.

At length a sail appears in sight,
And toward the maiden moves!
'Tis Wealth that comes, and gay and bright,
His golden bark reflects the light,
But ah! it is not Love's.

Another sail--'twas Friendship showed
Her night-lamp o'er the sea;
And calm the light that lamp bestowed;
But Love had lights that warmer glowed,
And where, alas! was he?

Now fast around the sea and shore
Night threw her darkling chain;
The sunny sails were seen no more,
Hope's morning dreams of bliss were o'er--
Love never came again!

(The end)

There Comes A Time There Comes A Time

There Comes A Time
(GERMAN AIR.)There comes a time, a dreary time, To him whose heart hath flownO'er all the fields of youth's sweet prime, And made each flow its own.'Tis when his soul must first renounce Those dreams so bright, so fond;Oh! then's the time to die at once. For life has naught beyond.When sets the sun on Afric's shore, That instant all is night;And so should life at once be o'er. When Love withdraws his light;--Nor, like our northern day, gleam on Thro' twilight's dim delay,The cold remains of lustre gone, Of fire long past

Hark! The Vesper Hymn Is Stealing Hark! The Vesper Hymn Is Stealing

Hark! The Vesper Hymn Is Stealing
(RUSSIAN AIR.)Hark! the vesper hymn is stealing O'er the waters soft and clear;Nearer yet and nearer pealing, And now bursts upon the ear: Jubilate, Amen.Farther now, now farther stealing Soft it fades upon the ear: Jubilate, Amen.Now, like moonlight waves retreating To the shore it dies along;Now, like angry surges meeting, Breaks the mingled tide of song Jubilate, Amen.Hush! again, like waves, retreating To the shore, it dies along: Jubilate, Amen.(The end)Thomas Moore's poem: Hark! The Vesper Hymn Is Stealing
