Beautiiul were the; in its joy. And the brightness of their truth, And musical as silver harps The voices of their youth. I walked with them through many years— Their gladness tilled a light O'er n path which m.y own fate Or hopes Had never made ho bright. And every sun that rose and set. Their lovo tnore fervent grew, As if heaven never from their hearts Its morning beams withdrew. And sweeter seemed the accents of Each gentle voico to sound, As time and converse, fond and sweot, Their souls more closely bound; And brighter every day, I thought, Their beaming brows l>ecamo, With the living thoughts that nurture hops, And love's undying flame! I saw them in their happy home, And by their winter hearth, The world nor harmed it with its lures, Nor tempests with their wrath; A charmed life was in thoir hearts— A sp...
