TO MR. AND MRS. G. E. STALEY.
ON THEIR WEDDING DAY.


Since cunning Cupid's mystic darts
Have now united both your hearts,
Accept my wishes, husband, wife,
For a long and prosp'rous life;

As the months and seasons fly,
And the years glide swiftly by,
But rehearsing with each scene
What for ages past has been!

Keep the sunshine, then, I pray,
Ever all along your way;
Be the weather rough or drear,
There's the silver lining clear.

It will make your cares seem lighter,
It will make your joys seem brighter;
Keep it, let it ne'er depart,
Hold the sunshine in your heart.
