THE CHRONICLE. COLFAX. - - LOU()ISIANA. A GLOVE. Ab, yesterday I found a glove Grown shabby, full of tiny ripe, But dear to me because my love Onoe through it thrust her finger-tips. A glove one would not care to see Upon his arm in public street: YTet here I own there is for me No relic in the world more sweet. A faint, far scent of lavender Steals from it, as the clover smelt, When through the fields I walked with her And plucked the blossoms for her belt. Faith! but I loved the little hand, That used to wear this time stained thing! Its slightest gesture of command Would set my glad heart fluttering. Or if it touched my finger, so, Or smoothed my hair-why should I speak Of those old days? It makes, you know, The tears brim over on my cheek. Poor stained, worn-out. long-wristed glove! I think it almost understands That reverently and with love I hold it in my trembling hands. And that it is so dear to me, With its old fragrance, far and faint.
