376 FOREST MELODIES.
0! I love, When a cold and callous world Hath its darts of envy hurled— Then I love, in fancy's clime, To forget the griefs of time.
Let me roam Ever through that realm of light; And, in fancy's sunny flight, Leaving all the heartless crowd, I '11 forget the vain and proud, Deeming all the wealth of earth And its joys of little worth.
A BRIDE'S GREETING,
OS BEDTO CJTBODUCED TO EEB HCSBAHd'S KINDRED.
I come a stranger here, And yet as one who knows you well, Whose heart with yours can warmly swell,
Though cold it may appear.
Dear are those friends to me, Whose sympathetic spirits lend A ray to cheer my dearest friend,
In sorrow or in glee.
I love the stranger heart, That showers its kindnesses on him; And never till life's star hum dim,
Such mem'ries shall depart.
