That is why I still am sighing as the deep gray shadows
fall, As the twilight spirit settles down her shadows in the hall, And I'm praying for the soldier from a soul with sorrow
sore, For our soldier boys have left us—gone, perchance, to come
no more.
THE BATTLE OF GALVESTON.
By Mrs. L. E. Caplex, Galveston.
Air—" The Harp that once thro' Tara's Halls.'
'Twas on that dark and fearful morn, That anxious hearts beat high !
And many from their friends were torn Beneath the wintry sky.
But hark! what cannon roar is that ?
Terrific—but sublime— Wafting some mortals to their graves,
Far from their Northern clime.
As the battle rag'd, voices high Echoed along the shore,
For death or victory was nigh Amid the battle's roar.
