OUR FAMILIAR SONGS.
" Kind sir, then take these posies, They're fading like my youth ; But never, like these roses, Shall wither Mary's truth.
"Born thus to weep my fortune, ' Though poor, I'll virtuous prove; I early learned this caution, That pity is not love.
Look up, thou poor forsaken,
I'll give thee house and heme, And if I'm not mistaken, Thou'lt never wish to roam.
" Once more I'm happy Mary, Once more has fortune smiled; Who ne'er from virtue vary, May yet be fortune's child."
