Undying Affection (song)

I loved thee in my happy youth,
When I was free from guile,
And I have kept that early truth,
And wear as fond a smile:
I've look'd to thee, through every storm
That lower'd upon my way,
Thou say'st my fair and fairy form
Hath made thy rainbow's ray.

I loved thee in that early time,
Life's best and brightest years;
I gave thee in thy manhood's prime,
My changing smiles and tears:
And now when evening shades come o'er
The length'ning path of life,
And we must think of love no more,
I am thy faithful wife.

(The end)

From Venus' shell?From a breast-flower nigh to bud?From a rose about to swell?Doth the texture have

The sea-gulls restless gleam and glance,The mad white coursers cleave the lengthOf ocean as they rear and pranceAnd toss their manes in stormy strength.The day is ending. Raindrops chokeThe sunset furnaces. The gloomBrings the great steamboat spitting smoke,And beating down its long black plume.And I, more wan than heaven wide,For land of soot and fog am bound,For land of smoke and suicide--And right good weather have I found!How eagerly I now would pierceThe gulf that groweth wild and hoar!The vessel rocks. The waves are fierce.The salt wind freshens more and more.Ah! bitter is my soul's unrest.The very ocean sighing heavesIn pity
