THE HAZEL-DELL. (By permission of tho publishers, Messrs. W. Hall & Son.)
In the Hazel-Dell my Nelly's sleeping—
Nelly, loved so long! And my lonely, lonely watch I'm keeping,
Nelly lost and gone. Here in moonlight often we have wandered
Through the silent shade; Now where leafy branches drooping downward,
Little Nelly's laid.
All alone my watch I'm keeping, In the Hazel-Dell;
For my darling Nelly's near me sleeping-Nelly, dear, farewell !
In the Hazel-Dell my Nelly's sleeping,
"Where the flowers wave; And the silent stars are nightly weeping
O'er poor Nelly's grave. Hopes that once my bosom fondly cherished,
Smile no more on me; Every dream of joy, alas ! has perished,
Nelly, dear, with thee.
All alone my watch, etc
Now I'm weary, friendless, and forsaken,
Watching here alone; Nelly, thou no more wilt fondly cheer me
With thy loving tone. Yet forever shall thy gentle image
In my memory dwell; And my tears thy lonely grave shall moisten—
Nelly, dear, farewell!
All alone my watch, etc
