THE DOVE AND THE KAVEN.
Vow poems have been more widely read than
IVjo's itavin," so peculiar In Its st le and gloomy In
Its thougnt and conception, for long years It has
hung over the human heart with a iiaik, despondent
chilliness, and wiio -e sorrow and loss and disap
pointment had round a lodgment In a weak and en
sttlve nature. It has made the gloom darker, the loss
heavier a d tae oisaopotntuient still greater. Ech -log
thro'igu the sad portal of bereaved and lonely
heart the rutraln of ".Nevermore" has been the
death knell of hopes that might have been nursed
Into renewed life by a more cheerful faith and a
brighter anl tuppler visitant from "Alden."
with this vlu of the matter In bis mind, Hev. J.
It. Martin, D. a, pusior of the First Presbyterian
chuivhot Atlanta, has written a companion poem
The Dove." which takes a more cheerful and sou).
Inspiring view ot the "dear departed." Inttead of a
dark.wtugeU messenger or sorrow and gloom, a bird
or brighter plumage and sweeter voice comes back
from "Alden" to the silent chamber of the bereaved
lover. To Christian hearts that look beyond mere
literary oxcellnoc, this tender poem of faith and
hopo wilt provo most aoc 'ptable. exchange.
A COMPANION TO POK'8 RAVEN.
KIV. 3. H. MARTIN, D. D.
Once upon a summer evening.
As I lay reposing, dreaming,
While the twinkling stars were beaming,
And their light was faintly gleaming,
Through the window of my room.
Suddenly beside my pillow,
like the murmur of a billow,
or the Blgh of weeping willow,
'Mid the shadow and tho gloom,
There was hoard a gentle sound
Floating on the air around.
As an echo from shore;
And I, waking, saw a dove
rerched upon tho whitened head
of a statue near my bed,
And it seems with soft, low cooing.
My lone heart to soothe with wooing,
Like an angel from tno sky,
or a spirit hovering nigh.
While 1 lay entranced and dreaming,
startled by the echo seeming
To be whispered from above,
In the starlight faintly gleaming,
With Its form of beauty beaming,
1 beheld the snowy dove
With a thrill ot wonder gazing
On the visitor, amazing,
I demanded: "Who are you"
And the gentle bird ot whiteness.
With Its snowy robe ot brl ghtness,
Answered with a coo :
"I am sent." he said, "from Alden,
By a fair and lovely maiden,
With a message unto theo :
I am come to sootho thy sorrow.
Bid thee from despair to borrow
Hope that thou her face Shalt see ;
For thy cherished one Is living.
And her thoughts to thee Is giving,
On a bright and distant shore ;
And I come, her carrier dove,
With a message from thy lsve,
Who Is thine forevermore."
By this Joyful news excited,
ltaptured, ravished and delighted,
1, the snowy bird addressing,
Asked, with earnest voice Inquiring,
What my soul was most desiring,
That her name to me expressing.
He rould set my heart at rest
Still the tumult In my breast.
And assure me that Mr maiden,
In the distant fleld3 of Alden,
Waited for mo on that shore
Would bo mine forevermore.
Then I spoke with greater fervor,
I. the maiden s ardent lover:
"Does my own departed live t"
(To the bird ot whiteness listening
While my eager eyes were glistening,
For the answer he should give):
"Tell me, O thou carrier dove,
or my absent cherished love,
Whom I knew In days of J ore ;
Has she passed the shining portal
Of the blessed land Immortal,
doing through tho golden door?
Dues she move In light and splendor,
Do the graces all attend her,
On that tar and distant shore t"
Words and tones and looks revealing
All my depths of Inward feeling,
Moved, affected by my pleading,
And my anxious question heeding,
Thus the drve, my soul discerning.
Answer m tde, these words returning:
"In the distant fields of Alden,
On a bright, Elyslan shore.
Dwells a talr and lovely jaaldeo,
And her name Is KUaore ;
'Mid the nowers about her blooming,
'Mid the odors Bw eel perfuming
AU the balmy air around.
She, arrayed In robes of whiteness,
Walks an angel In her brightness,
With a wreath Immortal crowned."
Then the bird his wings unfolding,
Lett me as I lay beholding,
Filled with transport and delight ;
With a soft sonorous coo,
Nodding, bidding me aileu.
Through the open window new
out into the gloomy night.
But the bright, enchanting vision
Of the distant fields Elyslan,
And my cherished Kllnore,
Asa fair and lovely maiden.
Dwelling In the land or Alden,
Is my light forevermore.
"There shall I, my Iqved one greeting, .
At our future, early meeting,
On that distant, radiant shore.
With ecstatic Joyand'gladness,
Free from parting, pain and sadness
Clasp again my Kllnore,
Call her mine forevermore I
