Is she biding, is she biding where the roses never bloom, And the poppies never wave their crimson banners through the corn? She bides somewhere, I know not where, But surely this I know: 'Twill alway seem like summer there, Howe'er the wind may blow! THE MEADOW PATH.

Once more we tread the very spot; The daisies still are blowing--see!I thought you loved me then; if not, Give now your heart to me! Fate turned from yours my path aside, That once across the flowers...
