WHEN WE TWO PARTED IN SILENCE AND TEARS.

When we two parted,

In silence and tears,
Half broken-hearted,

To sever for years,
Pale grew thy cheek, and cold,

Colder thy kiss!
Truly that hour foretold

Sorrow to this.

The dew of the morning

Sunk chill on my brow,
It felt like the warning

Of what I feel now.
Thy Tows are all broken,

And light is thy fame,
I hear thy name spoken,

And share in its shame,

They name thee before me,

A knell to mine ear;
A shudder comes o'er me—

Why wert thou so dear?
They know not I know thee,

Who knew thee too well!
Long, long shall I rue thee

Too deeply to tell.

In secret we met,

In silence I grieve,
That my heart would forget,

Thy spirit deceive!
If I should meet thee

After long years,
How should I greet thee?

With silence and tears!

THE LILY AND ZEPHYR.

Lo! when the showers descending

Weigh the lily's crest, How its frail cup, bending,

Seems with woe oppress'd!
Drops on drops assail her,

Whelm each lucid leaf;
The pale flower grows yet paler,

Lost in hopeless grief.

Zephyr, lightly sweeping

O'er the blooming plain, Spies that lily weeping,

Newly washed with rain! Fondly bends he o'er it,

Blowing drops away, With a kiss restores it,

Lady of the May!
