MX TKEE HAS FALL&N,
But earth's fierce jealousies Let us forget, And turn to the memories Lingering yet,—
The mem'ries of childhood, • Of days which have flown,
Of friends we have cherish'd, Now far from us gone.
Thou rememberest, my friend,
That brother of mine, Whose heart in affection
Clung closely to thine !
Hadst thou no other claim,
Yet for his dear sake, Thy name should deep feelings
And fond thoughts awake.
Since the days of our childhood Fond hearts "are estranged, ' But thy brotherly kindness Remains unchanged! '
MY TREE HAS FALLEN.
My tree has fallen!—late it rose
In strength and grandeur toward the sky,
Spreading aloft its beauteous boughs, The storms and tempests to defy;
