"Kim me !" said an artless child,
Tossing her sunny curls asido,
And clasping then, with dimpled arms,
A youthful mother's neck with pride :
"Ki me !" she said, "my mother, ou,"
Al though unseen electrio chords
V'ere charged with eloquence of lore,
Which might not breath or spouk in words.
"Kiss me '." tald a maiden fair,
At she twined, with graceful hand,
Her parting lover's raven locks,
Ere he sped to a far off land i
"Kiss me!" she said in sweetest tone,
"And leave thy truest love with me ;
My heart shall blend its own with thino
And bring them both unchanged to thee."
''Kiss me ?" said a dying boy,
Al a tear strayed down his pallid cheek,
And nearer drew his sitster's check,
To catch that voico so soft and weak ;
"Kits me!" be said. "I'm dying now,
As fade the sunset hues of even;
But, sister, I n ill watch for thoe,
And meet thee at the gates of Ileaveu !"
