Read an Excerpt


MY SON'S FIRST BIRTHDAY AFTER DEATH. " A good name is better than precious ointment; nncl the day of death than the day of one's birth."Ecclesiastics vii. 1. " He answered me and said, This present life is not the end where much glory doth abide."2 Esdras vii. 42. Oh ! if in the abodes of perfect bliss, To which thou wert translated suddenly, Remembrance is allowed of world like this ; On me bestow that filial memory: Or rather, with impartial love, divide That consciousness, between thy mother here, And the nipped flower, who hoped to be thy bride : Ere summoned hence wert thou from hearts so dear.Her head is bowed, my son ! her heart is broke ; She pines to share thy everlasting rest; While my own tears, the words of comfort choke, For her sole soothing, I would have expressed.

Oh, supplicate, my son ! the angel-throng, Who celebrate with thee thy natal day ; To plead for pardon, if the grief is wrong : Which over us bears such tyrannic sway. No : name it notlet nought terrestrial jar The heavenly harmony attuned for thee ; Earth, and its earthly anguish, must not mar Thy full fruition of felicity. The requiem of our untamed despair Must mingle not with music of the sky ; Lest, in the lull of gladder harpings there, Thine ear should catch its mournful minstrelsy, And recognise our birthday hymn for thee, Dirgelike, and solemn, as funereal wail; And dissonance be blent with melody : Whose diapason should serene prevail. Oh! as the years, love-registered, brought round The happy birthdays,welcomed so by me ; My soul, enamoured, ...
