LIFE.


A cry,
A sigh,
A sunny day,
An hour of play,
A budding youth,
A time of truth,
raster
152
An "All is well,"
A marriage bell,
A childish voice,
That birds rejoice,
A fleeting hour
Of transient power,
A wounded heart,
Death's poisoned dart,
A fleeting tear,
A pall, a bier,
And following this,
Oh! loss or gain ,
An afterlife of joy or pain.
