A MOTHER'S MEMORY

PAST mortal change, yet cherished still,
   0 deep and deathless mother love,
Thy children stricken feel the thrill -
The living themes their memories fill -
   Thy heart beats vibrant from above!
 
'Mid blest transition dear - not dead -
   0 passing soul, thou may'st not cease -
Abiding in a heavenly bed
May ever rest thy placid head -
   Thy loving spirit sleep in Life of Peace!

A TRANSPLANTED BLOOM CONTENTS A YOUNG HEART STRICKEN
