Clara Bessie Hill

[Selected Lines.]

when we've garnered up our treasures,
Bound them closely to our heart,
Suddenly, perchance unwillingly,
We are called with them to part.

Some bright flowers we've watched and tended,
Guarded with the utmost care.
Bringing to our hearts rich comfort
Faded, now, those flowers so fair.

Some sweet song our hearts have greeted,
Bird-like voices have filled our home,
Oft in silence now we're listening,
For the music which has flown.

Do we fell they're gone forever,
All these gifts we call our own?
Must we sorrow o'er them ever,
Joys of earth so quickly flown?

"Where thy treasure there thy heart is,"
Speaks a voice of love to you.
To himself he's borne thy treasure;
He would draw thy heart there too.

They're not blighted they're not withered,
Just transplanted from this shore,
To that land of life immortal,
There to bloom forevermore.

Jackson Center, Ind., May 3, 1881.
