To The "wild Flower"

To the "wild Flower."(1)


I've ranged the bright streamlet in childhood's blest hour,
And culled from its borders spring's loveliest flowers,
Then bound up my bouquet, all glitt'ring with dew,
And smiled on my treasure as homeward I flew.

I've seen the sweet violet deck the green sod,
All fresh from the hand of a bountiful God,
While soft whisp'ring zephyrs breathed this in my ear,
"The wisdom of God in these blossoms appear."

I've looked on the mayflower, spring's earliest child,--
It peeped from the snowdrift and modestly smiled;
I've plucked the fair lily, arrayed in fair white,
And drank in its fragrance with heartfelt delight.

Yet blossoms that smile in the green woodland bower,
Ne'er rival this sweet intellectual flower;
This blossom sprang up from the depths of the mind,--
The heart's thrilling fibres its tendrils entwine,

Affection's pure fountain has watered the germ,
The bright sun of intellect cherished its form,
It's petals were colored in fancy's rich dye,
Till they, with the hues of the rainbow may vie;
I'll pluck thee, sweet blossom, pure fragrance I find,
When the rich perfumes are inhaled by the mind.

Reclining on a sister's arm, The babe found sweet repose; While from the heart, in accents warm, The father's prayer arose. And, fair as rosebuds bathed in dew; By morning zephyrs fanned, A blooming group of loved ones,

To A Butterfly In My Chamber
Whence art thou, frail, wand'ring stranger, Softly flitting round my bed? Is thy life exposed to danger? Are thy friends and kindred dead? Does the cold rude breath of autumn, Chill thy little fragile form? Hast thou come to seek a shelter From the dreaded gath'ring storm? Art thou now our friendship trying? Wouldst thou test the vows we made, When thou was so gaily flying 'Round us, 'neath the fragrant
