To J. R. M.

I walked within the silent city of the dead,
Which then with Autumn leaves was carpeted,
And where the faded flower and withered wreath
Bespoke the love for those who slept beneath,
And, weeping, stood beside a new-made grave
Which held the sacred dust that friendship gave.
That heart with milk of human kindness overflowed--
That sympathetic hand its generous aid bestowed
To lighten others' burdens on life's weary road!
And there no polished shaft need lift its head
In lettered eulogy above the sainted dead--
His deeds are monuments above the dust whereon we tread!
When from its fragile tenement of clay
To fairer realms his spirit winged its way,
With poignant grief we stood around the bier
Which held the lifeless form of one held dear,
And broken hearts that knew no comfort then
Still mourn the loss of one of Nature's noblemen!

The Queen-rose--a Summer Idyl
The sunlight fell with a golden gleam On the waves of the rippling rill;The pansies nodded their purple heads; But the proud queen-rose stood still.She loved the light and she loved the sun,And the peaceful night when the day was done,But the faithless sun in his careless wayHad broken her heart on that summer's day.She had bathed her soul in his warm sweet, rays, She had given her life to him;And her crimson heart--it was his alone-- Of love it was full to the brim.But a fairer bud in the garden of loveHad conquered the heart of
