Iantha Skinner

For the Observer.
Original Lines.

On the death of Miss Iantha, daughter of Mr. O. I. Skinner, of Valparaiso, which occurred Feb. 1, 1852.

A flower again has been nipped,
Just as it began to be seen;
From its freshness and beauty is stripped --
The effects of original sin.
From its freshness and beautiful hue,
Ah, who would have ludged its decline;
But it's hurried away to renew
Its glory in a happier clime.
There planted in soil that's devine,
Where the waters of life ever flow,
And the sun that's eternal shall shine,
And all to perfection shall grow.
Then silence each murmuring thought,
And bow to a Providence right;
The flower that's faded was brought
To the country that's cloudless and bright.

Feb. 24, 1852
