Minerva Linderman


Sadly do we miss you Minnie,
As you are the only one,
Who with all this earthly trouble,
Pain and sorrow you are done.

Empty is the lovely cradle,
Which contains our Baby's bed.
Lightened is the snowy pillow,
Where she did once rest her head.

Silent is your little clatter,
And still is your little tongue;
The cheerful songs were sung to you,
Will never more be sung.

Around your form when all were weeping,
For we knew the time had come,
When our darling babe must leave us,
And its troubles on earth be done.

Soon so sweetly you'll be sleeping,
In the Land where all is well,
For the good God to thee calleth,
Go with him to dwell.

Soon will come the changeful Spring,
And the leaves of every color,
And around you they will gather
Your little grave to cover.

Then will come white bearded winter,
To us mourners here below,
But you in Heaven cannot feel,
Though your grave be clad in snow.

You come to us the close of winter,
We loved thee dearer than any other,
And 'tis sad to think a bud so sweet,
Should live but just till spring.

One pleasant day in last of winter,
A pearl to us was given,
She came to us to bud on earth,
But now shall bloom in heaven.
