THE DEMOCRAT. H. H. ADAMS fc'llhr CAPE GIRARDEAU. MI5S-)URL SONG OF YEARS. The brigrht hours pass like birds on pinions golden. And leave their empty nests In Memory's balls: And In the past, with all Its mysteries olden, Ohlivlon, like a twilight, o'er them falls. They have sweet songs to cheer, they have glad voices. Their flashing wings like flaming sun beams burn; Cut, ah! e'en while the listening ear re joices. They speed away, and never more re turn! Cod rains the moments down like golden showersT We gather them, and lo! they are but dew! They melt like flakes of snow, they fade like flowers.

Ah, me! the golden fancies that have per ished. And left behind but footprints of their cheer! Some autumn falls on every summer cher ished: Each laughing...
