Its walls me high and stately ?Its turrets touch lliu skica j I catch from ofE its .towers A glimpse of Paradise. And in my lovely castlo A pretty maiden smiles, Whoso eyes, bo sweet and londer, Are like two mystic islca — Like dieaming islands sleeping , Upon a sea of dreams ; And when they smile upon mo, The world an Eden seems. 0 yo who live in darkness, And never see the light — ?Whose hearts and souls aro shrouded In shadows of the night — Come with ma to my mansion, And dwell a moment there , And listen to the music That floats upon the air. No shadow over falleth, Upon my castle walls , And sorrow never comcth Intomy happy halls , The feist is over icadj , - The wine is in the bowl— Como with me to my castle, ' The castle, of my soul.

When tho fresh pink bloom of the awcet brier wild, That lenns from tho dell liko the cheek of a child, Is changed for dry chips on a thorny bush ? Then scarlet and carmino tho groves will flush. How will it bo when tho Autumn flowers Wither away from their leafless bowers, V/hen Bimflowor and Btarflower nnd golgen rod Glimmer no moro from tho frosted sod, And the hiltsido nooka are empty nnd cold? Then the forest tops will bo gay with gold. How will it be when the woods turn brown, Their gold nnd their crimson all dropped down And crumbled to dust / Oh, then ai we lay Our car to earth's lips we shall hear her say, ' In the dark I am seeking new goms for my crown.'
