(No. 2.)
Music, with Piano Forte accompaniment, published by Firth,
Pond & Co., New York.
Blue-birds, linger here awhile,
O'er this sacred grassy pile,
Sing your sweetest songs to me—
'T is the grave of Eulalie.
Roses white, around her tomb                     /
Gently wave and sweetly bloom,
Let your silent language be—
" We will bloom for Eulalie."
Streamlet, chaunting at her feet Mournful music, sad and sweet, Wake her not, she dreams of me 'Neath the yew tree, Eulalie I Eulalie, but yesternight, Came a spirit veiled in white ; I knew it could be none but thee, Bride of Death, lost Eulalie.
Angels, guard her with your wings, Shield her from unholy things, Bid her dream love-dreams of me,— Till I come, sleep, Eulalie!
