TWILIGHT FANCIES. Were I laid to rest
From all my fears, The friends I love best
Yet he who grieves
Knows we must part.
Nay, shed no tears,
Away from lingering fears.

Though numbered with the dead.
Flowers for my lot,
Plant a sweet Forget-me-not.
Which to us was dear,
Yet ne'er remembered with a tear.
THE BEAUTIFUL HAVEN.
Where the sun doth never set,
There many now have met.
Many storms do fall,
Peace and plenty unto all.
To tbat grateful home above,

Live in different habitations.
To have wages so low,
