How calm she Was with her saint-like lace, IHer eyes are violet, mine are blue How carelers I am with my mother's lace I Her hands are whiter and softer too. They have gone to the city beyond the bills; They must never come back to thin place again. I'm almost afraid to sit here so still. Wish it would thunder, and lighten and rain. Oh, no I for some one may not be at rest, Some one, perhaps, is travelling to-night. I hope that the moon may shine instead, And heaven be starry, and earth all 'bright. It is only one summer that she's been here, It has been my home for seventeen years And seventeen summers of happy bloom Fall dead to-night in a rain of tears. It is dark, all dark, in the midnight shades, Father in heaven, may I have rest?' One hour of rest for this aching bead? S For.this throbbing.heart 2i...
