THE BLOSSOM OF THE FLYING TERMS."

Delia.

[ocr errors]

A N beauty of its power unconscious be ?

Unwitting of the mystic charms it weaves ;

And while it graves its image upon me,
Ignore the deep impression that it leaves ?

Can lashes droop, nor wist the reason why?

Can woman see devotion's glance of fire, Nor know the object of the gazing eye,

The eye that gazes only to admire ?

TÇE was all in all to mother,

All her life and light and joy;
Husband long since drowned, and brother,

She lived only for her boy.

When from distant lands returning,

His broad shoulders filled the door;
Did not all her soul then, burning,

Leap to meet her son once more ?

Did she not, in fervent praying,

Ask again to see her boy?
Why did Heaven, her prayer gainsaying,

Bid Death's ministers destroy ?
