HAPPY BE THY DREAMS.

Он, happy, happy, happy be thy dreams, Bright be thy vision that before thee lies,

Dreams of radiant hills and sunlit streams'

Dreams of the bright and blue unclouded skies!

Sleep--for thy mother watches by thy side;

O'er thee, unseen, the watchful spirits glide.

Pure as the star that o'er thee mildly beams,

Oh, happy, happy, happy be thy dreams,

Happy, happy, happy be thy dreams!

Oh, happy, happy, be thy path in life, Long still thy mother's tender love to

share:

Till Heaven has called her from this vale of strife,

And purer bliss succeed to worldly care!

Then, if the Angels earth-ward turi their eyes,

[ocr errors]

She will watch o'er thee from the radiant skies. Sleep-while yon Star still o'er thee mildly beams,

Oh, happy, happy, happy be thy

dreams,

Happy, happy, happy be thy dreams!

[ocr errors]

HERE IN SOLITUDE AND SILENCE. Here, in solitude and silence,

I can weep, unseen, unknownHere, in sadness, I can wander, Musing on fond hopes o'erthrow

In this place, none can behold me:
None can my sighs of anguish
hear;

I my sad tale of love can whisper,
To the zephyrs wandering near.
