She Loved Him

She loved him--but she heeded not--
Her heart had only room for pride:
All other feelings were forgot,
When she became another's bride.
As from a dream she then awoke,
To realize her lonely state,
And own it was the vow she broke
That made her drear and desolate!

She loved him--but the sland'rer came,
With words of hate that all believed;
A stain thus rested on his name--
But he was wronged and she deceived;
Ah! rash the act that gave her hand,
That drove her lover from her side--
Who hied him to a distant land,
Where, battling for a name, he died!

She loved him--and his memory now
Was treasured from the world apart:
The calm of thought was on her brow,
The seeds of death were in her heart.
For all the world that thing forlorn
I would not, could not be, and live--
That casket with its jewel gone,
A bride who has no heart to give!

Look From Thy Lattice, Love
Look from thy lattice, love-- Listen to me!The cool, balmy breeze Is abroad on the sea!The moon, like a queen, Roams her realms above,And naught is awake But the spirit of love.Ere morn's golden light Tips the hills with its ray,Away o'er the waters-- Away and away!Then look from thy lattice, love-- Listen to me.While the moon lights the sky, And the breeze curls the sea!Look from thy lattice, love-- Listen to me!In the voyage of life, Love our pilot will be!He'll sit at the helm Wherever we rove,And steer
