ORIGINAL POETRY. TO M. E. H. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 15 June 1861

ORIGINAL POETRY. TO M. E. II . ' When man expell'd from Eden's bowers A moment linger'd near the gate, Each scene recall'd the vauish'd hours And bade him curse his future fate. Hut, wandering on through distant climci He learnt to bear his load of grief, Just gave a sigh to other times And found his busier scenes relief.' Thus man forgot the early curse, And also her lh.it him betrayed ; He touk the tiaitrcss for his mirrc, ' And all the ill she caused forgave. 15ut often yet he is deceived, The sisterhood make sport and laugh To see how much, poor sou), he's grieved — They say, behold the foolh.h calf.
