Ada A. Hoskins


Ada A. Hoskins, daughter of Mrs. Elmira Hoskins, died at Valparaiso, June 17, 1882, of croup, aged two years and three months.

I sat in the lonesome twilight,
With my empty arms on my breast,
And my heart was stony with sorrow,
Yet mod with a wild unrest.
I knelt by the empty cradle
And thought of the new-made grave,
Crying, "God, you were cruel, cruel,
To take back the child you gave!"

A voice that was sweet with pity,
Said, "Peace, be still, poor heart!"
And I saw, in swift, bright vision,
Heaven's gates swing wide apart.
And for all my grief and sorrow
That one sweet glimpse sufficed,
For I saw my black-eyed babe
Asleep in the arms of Christ.
