LOVE'S YOUNG DREAM.
OH! the days are gone, when beauty
My heart's chain move; When my dream of life, from morn to night,
Was love, still love! New hope may bloom, And days may come, Of milder, calmer beam; But there's nothing half so sweet in life As love's young dream! Oh! there's nothing half so sweet in life As love's young dream.
Though the bard to a purer flame may soar,
When wild youth's past; Though he win the wise, who frown'd before,
To smile at last;
As when first he sung to woman's ear His soul-felt flame,
And, at every close she blushed to hear
The one loved name!
Oh! that hallowed form is ne'er forgot, Which first love trac'd!
Still it lingering haunts the greenest spot
On memory's waste!
'Twas morning's winged dream! 'Twas a light that ne'er can shine again On life's dull stream!
Oh! 'twas light that ne'er can shine
On life's dull stream.
BY THE MARGIN OF FAIR ZURICH'S WATERS.
By the margin of fair Zurich's waters— Ayieo!
Dwelt a youth whose fond heart, night and day,
For the fairest of fair Zurich's daughters-Ayieo,
In a dream of love melted away ! When alone, no one bolder than he, But with her none more timid could
Will you list to me, dearest, I pray?—
When she did, this was all he could say:
Ayieo! Ayieo! alack, well a day!
By the margin of fair Zurich's waters -Ayieo!
At the close of a fine summer's day; To the fairest of fair Zurich's daughters-Ayieo!
This fond youth at last to say,
I'm in love, as you plainly may see, Could I any other but thee? Oh say, wilt thou be my bride? Ayieo: Can you tell how this fair one replied?
Ayieo! Ayieo! I leave you to guess, Ayieo Ayieo! of course she said yes!
ERIN IS MY HOME.
Oн, I have roamed in many lands,
But I'll confess that I'm content,
If England was my place of birth,
Tho' pleasant days in both I've passed,
Oh, steer my bark to Erin's Isle,
My daddy to my mammy said,
My mother lov'd her poodle,
My beauty was so great and grand,
My mouth was like a haystack,
'Tis true, or I'm a noodle,
The most correctest possibly
The dashing Yankee Doodle.
