The crowd, of which thou late wert one,
I stood not by thy fev'rish bed,
I look'd not on thy glazing eye, Nor gently lulld thy aching head,
Nor view'd thy dying agony: I felt not what my parents felt,
The doubt the terror the distress
My soul was spar'd that wretchedness.
And days of mourning glided by.
The well-known morn, I used to greet
With boyhood's joy, at length was beaming, And thoughts of home and raptures sweet
In ev'ry eye, but mine, were gleaming; But I, amidst that youthful band
Of beating hearts and beaming eyes,
Nor felt those wonted ecstasies :
I drew near to my father's gate
No smiling faces met me now
Grief sat upon my mother's brow :
The Sabbath came with mournful pace
The pure white cloth above the shrine
And years have past--and thou art now
Forgotten in thy silent tombAnd cheerful is my mother's brow,
My father's eye has lost its gloom,
Another victim by thy side;
But not more pure than thee he died.
My boyish days are nearly gone,
My breast is not unsullied now;
Cut their deep furrows on my brową
And lov'd and link'd my heart with others; But who with mine his spirit blends,
As mine was blended with my brother's !
When years of rapture glided by,
The spring of life's unclouded weather,
My brother, grew in love together.
