AT THE CLOSE OF SCHOOL.


As to-day I sit and muse
O'er the dreamy past,
In my memory comes a scene
Of December last.

How well do I remember
The mountains huge and tall,
That stood on both the sides and rear
Of the school house quaint and small.

'Twas the last day of the term--
The teacher was my brother,
And among the crowd that day
There still was another.

Who comes so vividly just now
In my fond recollection,
Who had my warmest friendship and
My dearest, best affection.

Ah! well do I remember,
Nor shall I soon forget,
His jetty curls and lovely eyes,
The first day that we met.

Many of the ones I saw,
Only last December,
At the closing of the school,
I cannot now remember.

But there is one, yes, there is one,
Do what I may, go where I will,
His lovely eyes and jetty curls
Will haunt in my memory still.
